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.

    Oooh I'm so excited! I want to make meals ahead of time and freeze them for when the baby comes. Can't wait to see the recipes 🙂

  5. Kruger Family says

    Do you freeze the pizza dough? If so, do you bake the dough before you freeze it or do you freeze the raw dough?

  6. FishMama says

    Yes, I freeze the pizza dough in balls and then thaw overnight.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
