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? I’ve adjusted it somewhat for today. Last night I got the pies made, but no applesauce. And I’ve decided to save the Indian Shuck Bread for a different day. It’s not part of our dinner plan tonight, and I’m not sure how it will freeze since I’ve never made it before. So, here’s my modified plan for the day.

  1. Make hot dog and hamburger buns. (Dough is working as we speak.)
  2. Cook applesauce. (My BFF is making this right now!)
  3. Make granola.
  4. Prepare mixes for scones, pancakes, and cornbread.
  5. Make big batch of hot cocoa mix.
  6. Bake cookies – lots and lots of cookies and freeze some dough as well.

It’s about 7:30 right now, so I’m hoping to clock out at lunchtime. But, you know, the best laid plans…. We shall see. In the meantime, it’s Slab Apple Pie for breakfast.

    yes, I posted crockpot applesauce for Tasty Tuesday, and it's so easy, isn't it? Love it!

  2. Ok, now you've made me want to make lots and lots of cookies!! 'twill have to wait until another day, though, today is already full.

  3. I feel well rested after yesterday at least I can start earlier today then I did yesterday and supper is already ready for tonight as I made it last night and they can reheat it.

  4. I totally admire that you make your own rolls! Do you also make your own breads? I've just started that this week, without a bread machine. 🙂

    I'm loving the updates on the cooking. Will be having my own kitchen days next week. However, I'm not a fan of the "slab apple pie". The name, that is. I think it needs a prettier name to go with it's brilliance and yumminess. "Slab" just doesn't do it justice. 😉

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

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