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. :-)
