Freezer Cooking Day #2 – The End Result

Freezer-Inventory-014

Very cute cookies, thanks to FishBoy8! Oh, I’m tired. Two days in the kitchen all the while juggling the running of a full household can be fatiguing. But I know that this will be worth it throughout the month. I think this counts as “working hard during the week in order to enjoy family time on […]

Freezer Cooking Day: Mid-Morning Update

Freezer-Inventory-005

I bought myself sometime this morning by letting FishBaby play in the cupboard. It’s not my favorite trick for cooking with kids, but it sure did make her happy. She’s now snoozing in her bed, so it’s time to book it. Right now the kids are enjoying applesauce hot from the crockpot. FishBoy7 peeled the […]

I went to bed exhausted last night. But, since I’m getting a good habit going this month, I was in bed by 10:30 instead of my usual 1 am. I feel rested and ready to take on the world — or at least my kitchen. Yesterday I got quite a lot accomplished. Remember my list? […]

Homemade Pie Crust – A Finer Thing

GCE-Photos-052

Some members of the FishFam have distinctly different tastes than I do. Many prefer cake to pie. But, me? Mmmm. I’ll take pie anyday, savory like Chicken Pot Pie or sweet, like Cherry Pie. It seemed appropriate to give you the low-down on homemade pie crust, for several reasons: 1. It tastes better than store […]

A Whale of A Cake

2009-June-204

FishBoy7 has a newfound interest in fish. I suppose it could be considered a natural interest, considering our last name. But, ever since the research that went into this post, he’s been reading, and drawing and talking about fish. He has learned a ton about the undersea world in his independent reading. And he requested […]
