Interested in learning more about freezer cooking and baking? Well, this is your week!
MoneySavingMom and I are going to be live blogging and tweeting our kitchen adventures on Tuesday and Wednesday. We’ve even got a Facebook Event page set up as well as a Twitter hashtag to follow (#BakingDay). (Aren’t we fancy?)
It’s a weird world we live in that we can know instantly what our friends are doing elsewhere around the globe. Hey – are you burning those cookies? can be “heard” in a different time zone.
This week’s URS will be an opportunity to share your favorite make ahead recipe so if you’ve got a great recipe – or need one – Thursday’s the day!
As for me and the FishKids, we’re going to be experimenting with a few new recipes, many of them from Susan Branch’s book, Autumn. It’s a beautiful tome. Be sure to read my review.
My kids all love to cook and bake, so some of our homeschool lessons for the week will include Home Economics. I love knowing that my kids – both boys and girls – are learning real life skills as well as book knowledge. If you’re stumped for ways to incorporate — or survive — cooking with kids underfoot, I’ll be posting my tips for that this week as well as how to keep track of what’s in the freezer.
