Monthly Menu (planner)

December 5, 2008

I’m going to try to create recipes (or link to those recipes that I got elsewhere) as I go along, so expect that in the future.

On the snacks section. I went and bought a bunch of very small, sampler jelly type canning jars, and use them to make fruit/gelatin snacks and pudding snacks. It seem unreal to me to pay a dollar for 4 pudding snacks and 3 dollars for 4 fruit/gelatin snacks (or 2.39 for walmart brands snacks) So I came up with the idea of making them ahead of time. The kids really enjoy that.

Also, with the muffins. I tend to make up the flour/crisco/sugar/spices mix ahead of time, label and freeze (so I can tell the difference between the gluten and GF mixes) then add eggs, baking soda, liquids and various things like dried fruit, grated veggies etc… right before baking. Of course, I need to take them out of the freezer in the morning BEFORE mixing, since frozen shortening isn’t so hot in baking unless you are making biscuits LOL.

With 6 kids, short cuts like freezing individual servings of large quanties, making your own snacks and cutting baking time in half really really helps in the saving time and money department!
