Freezer Cooking!?

So M has a habit of browsing Imgur before work and any time he’s a little bit bored. Yesterday, he showed me a post about getting started with Freezer Cooking. for the unitiated, freezer cooking is the process of spending a day, cooking all of the things you’re going to eat a specific month, all in one day and then freezing them, to be defrosted as needed.

in M’s mind, this means that We will spend one day cooking, and I will have more time to do things, because all I’ll have to do is defrost and reheat.

In my mind, I see a full day of menu planning, a day of grocery shopping, a day of prep, and a day of cooking- pushing 20 hours worth of work into 2-3 days. functionally, I figure I might save about 30 minutes a day, and I’m just not sure how worth it that is…. when a roomba would save me the same amount of time!

 

Do any of you have experience with Freezer cooking? am I totally off base or on the right track with time savings?

Thankful for Birthdays… belated Dec 6 Thankful List

Yesterday was my birthday and as a result, M took the day off, and we spent the day watching Miyazaki movies and walking Toots around our hometown… my father and his wife stopped in and gave me a gorgeous charm bracelet. So- I slacked off and totally forgot to post.

  1. I am thankful for snow days
  2. I am thankful for the good days, for showing me what life can be
  3. I am thankful for the bad days, so I can recognize the truly good days.

 

Speak No Evil

I’ll admit it: I have a potty mouth. I try REALLY hard not to- just as I am still trying not to refer to myself in the third person to my two oldest godchildren. “Aunties doesn’t like that” just makes them look at me like I have three heads.

So, what does a potty mouth do when they’re trying to reform their language? They substitute. Today is my 27th birthday, and in honor of that, this post is entirely on making light on some of the weird stuff that comes out of my mouth when I’m trying not to swear.

So, without further ado, here it is… my not-even-close-to-complete list of Non-quite offensive words.

 

 

Herbert Nenninger! I left the oven on again!

Boogers! I dropped a pie dish! (or Shitake mushrooms, OR say please to mice)

Gaul Durn it, why won’t this thing work?

Christmas on a Cupcake, where on earth are my glasses?

Oven of Biscuits! I crushed my thumb!

Lady Godiva that stove is hot!

You don’t have to be such a dogcatcher about it.

I fell on the ice and bruised my endbits.

girls have an innie (or hoonenkoontz), boys have an outie (or Klinginspritzer)… these words also apply when you might call someone a ‘coward’ or ‘jerk’ if you catch my drift.

Name Calling basically boils down to:

Debbie Downer/Douglas Downer = someone who is constantly talking about sad stuff and bringing down a group of people

Chatty Cathy/ Chatty Charles = someone who gossips

Nitty Nancy/ Nitty Nicholas = Someone who nitpicks others

Negative Nora/ Negative Nixon = someone who can’t find the good in anything

 

 

 

 

 

 

#Housewifing Book Club

I really like to read, and honestly I haven’t been doing much of it lately. I spend my days cleaning and my nights tend to be spend crocheting while I watch movies with M. I tend to forget I have a book going until I head upstairs for bed, and on a good night, I have 10 minutes of reading before M comes upstairs after me and asks if I’m ready for the light to be off.

I like to assume that many of you are like me- enthusiastic readers without a whole lot of time set aside to actually read. So, every month from here on out, I am going to be recommending a book, chosen from my own Goodreads’ To-Read list or from your suggestions, giving a synopsis and explaining where you can find it. At the end of the month, I’ll post my own review. I encourage you all to post yours, be it in the comments section below, or on your own blog. Send me a link to your post when you’ve finished.

Sunday Morning Bible Study: Forgiveness

Every Sunday morning, I will be posting a bible study guide on a specific topic. These will be scheduled ahead (so I won’t be changing the topics at the last minute), but I encourage you to help me out, and comment below with your favorite verses on the topic for the week, and suggestions for next week’s topic.

This week, We’ll be reading about Forgiveness. with all the troubles going on in the united states in particular, it can be difficult in times like these to turn the other cheek. Let’s read what the bible has to say about the topic, and hopefully come out the better for it. I encourage you to share these readings with your family and discuss them.

Matthew 5:23-24

Matthew 6:14-15

Matthew 18: 21-22

Luke 6:37

Luke 17:3-4

Luke 23:33-34

John 8:7

Colossians 3:13

Ephesians 4:31-32

My Weekly Cleaning to-do list

On Wednesday, I posted my daily cleaning task list for you all. Now onto my weekly tasks. I have this list organized by the day of the week… so while I do these tasks once a week, I always do them on the same day of the week. Organizing it this way makes it less overwhelming to see all of my lists together, and makes it more likely that everything that I know CAN get done, DOES get done. Ready? Ok.

Monday:

  1. Strip Beds
  2. Wash Bedding
  3. Sweep Upstairs & Stairs

Tuesday:

  1. Polish Metal Fixtures
  2. Dust Kitchen
  3. Wash Cabinet Doors

Wednesday:

  1. Clean Stove
  2. Dust Bathroom
  3. Repair Chairs

Thursday:

  1. Dust Dining Room
  2. Replace Paper towels

Friday:

  1. Dust Living Room
  2. Mop Downstairs
