In my previous post I listed out our housing options and said we were leaning towards buying. Well, we've made an offer on a house and it was accepted! Now, we are in the waiting period. Waiting for final approval of the loan, inspections on the house and the house appraisal. I'm going with the assumption that things will go through, but also trying to not be too excited as you can never be sure until it's all said and done.
All of that has made me feel a bit anxious about how the next month or so will go. I do not want to fall behind with the kids' schoolwork or let my house get chaotic (more than it already is!). So one thing I think I can do to help things go smoother is to prep more meals. I read several blogs of women who do batch/freezer cooking so they are really my inspiration!
Here's my goal of what to make for today:
3 lbs. meatballs
3 lbs. hamburger cooked and portioned in 1 lb. bags for nachos & hamburger stroganoff
1 pan homemade macaroni shells & cheese
4 dozen muffins (1/2 pumpkin butterscotch & 1/2 banana choc. chip)
2 batches waffles
2 batches pancakes
2 loaves pumpkin bread
All total that would be 7 dinners & 7 breakfasts that can be made with minimal thinking!
Hopefully I'll be back later and be able to post a picture of my efforts to prove I accomplished something ;)
