Meal Time


First of all, we don't usually eat cookies and little smokies.  We were making these for a party... but you get the point.  

Cooking for a family of ten is a huge event.  Each meal takes a least one hour of prep time and an hour of cleaning up.  Menu planning, shopping, mixing, everything is a long, arduous process.  I provide all three meals on Sundays and Mondays and that is no small feat.  Today I spent an hour and a half in the kitchen making lunch and prepping dinner.  I have another hour to go and it's a crockpot meal! 

But I'm not complaining!  Far from it.  One day I'll be cooking for two and I won't know how to just make a recipe.  I'll keep trying to multiply it times 4.  I won't know about leftovers and freezer meals.  I won't know what to do with my 7 loaves of extra bread.  I'll miss my family and their healthy appetites.  :-)
