I spent some of yesterday and today cooking my brains out. With homeschool, a play, sports and Girl, Cub and Boy Scouts I need some things ready to go. I found hamburger for $1.77/lb so I got 10 pounds. I made 2lb of meatballs, two meatloaves, 2lb of taco meat and froze the rest of it browned in 1 lb bags.
Cooked two pots of beans and froze them so they are ready to go.
I made 10 dozen cookies. I've got snacks for Cubs and two soccer teams this week and the kids will eat the rest.
I made 2dozen cornmeal muffins and 2 dozen blueberry ones for breakfasts.
I roasted a sale chicken, picked the meat and made broth.
I made and canned 8 pints of salsa. Hopefully this will make getting dinner on the table much easier.

Wow! :congrats: Thanks for the inspiration! And with all your kids :baby:, I think I'll double that wow. I'm totally impressed, and maybe just a little wistful. :)

I'd love to find the desire to do that, but the hot weather in Fl does nothing to inspire that in me. :sun: However, you will find me doing just what you did on our 1st cool day. :cap: Unfortunately.....that's gonna be about another 2-3 months from now! :turtle: Why oh why did I move here? SIGH!! I wanna go home. I just love the fall on Long Island in NY. And I love cooking too. OK....now I feel like crying! :(...lol!

Great job joyofsix!
