How many weeks in a row will I say..."School is almost here!" Can you tell that it has been on my mind?
Have y'all bought your school supplies yet? Have you purchased some school clothes? Lunch box? Back pack?
Guess what I did today? I worked on getting our school supplies organized. I bought compartmental boxes for each child. They each have scissors, tape, a glue stick, markers, crayons, and colored pencils. Everybody has their "own box". smile.
I also decided to tackle my freezer and organize it! Inventory time!
I like to have a stash in the freezer for time savers and go-to meals during the school year. I want to be prepared for busy days. Soccer season is approaching too.
3 children playing on 3 different teams.
Here is a quick list of what I plan to put in the freezer this week:
I am going to double or possibly triple my Mother's B-que Meatloaf recipe.
I will try and get 2-3 different muffins made. (Orange and Blueberry Oat)
Double our favorite Buttermilk Biscuit recipe from Southern Plate.
Make 2 pounds of rice. Freeze in baggies.
I made a batch of Uncrustables earlier this week.. but don't know how long they will last. smile.
