I think I am becoming a more reflective homemaker or maybe just more practical. There are so many items I love to make from scratch but during the midst of homeschooling a lot of it becomes more burdensome then pleasurable. We love homemade bread (from hand not machine I still make that!) and I love to make it but we may not see it again until the Thanksgiving Holiday when I can fill it with love. What corners have you found to cut to make your homeschooling & homemaking journeys more compatible?
These two weeks of meals cost me roughly $150 for a family of 5.
Price Matching Pays!
***This week I purchased roughly 14.96 pounds of Pork Butt Roast for 14.96 instead of the $25.58 you would pay full price. I also purchased 19.74 pounds of pork chops for 19.74 instead of the $43.03. A total retail cost of $68.61 which was purchased for $34.70 or a savings of 50%. The time to buy pork chops in bulk is when it hits $1!

I get up much earlier. I always have a plan for what I need to do each day. I constantly pray to ask God if I need to change my path.
I cannot, nor can my dh, eat pork chops after they were the first thing on sale when I started price matching and we ate them FOREVER!
I cook all my ground beef at once. I don't weigh, I eyeball in 1.5 pound bags and I have started doing half beef half turkey, but don't tell anyone. How do I flash freeze this so that it's not watery when it's thawed. If I season it then freeze it's way watery. Oh kitchen maven, tell me please!
Haven't tried the chicken recipe yet because to save time I am cooking only things I don't need a recipe for right now and only things that I have ingredients on hand all the time. The staples are tacos, taco soup, speghetti, lasagna, quessadillas, grilled meat and veggies (talapia, chicken, steak when it's on sale), sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers, sweet n sour chicken, chicken parmesan, mexican lasagna, king ranch.
You rock!
