wow!!! good for you!


I"m here because I have the same exact issues. We eat out sooo much. Almost every weekend we eat at least once with my parents. It's so hard to cook for 6 people, when if we were eating alone, we could just have toast and call it done. but it really adds up!

Good and expensive, lol, but still way cheaper than eating out...  I am feeding 6 people, and all but one have an adult-sized appetite (or more, they are growing so fast!).  I just started a whole 6 quart crockpot of pork and veggies w/mushroom gravy to serve over jasmine rice.  That plus a big berry cobbler will last for supper tonight, 2 or 3 people's lunches tomorrow, plus maybe some cobbler for breakfast and a snack tomorrow.  Plus I made a big loaf of bread, and am about to cook the pancake batter I made earlier.  I use 10 cups of flour(s) in a single batch, lol.  I am leaving the house before supper time and won't be back until late (rare for me), and I know there will be not one slice of bread left when I get back.  It'll probably disappear before supper, actually.  Then there will be bedtime snacks of pancakes, I'm sure.


***disclaimer***  we don't normally eat so much baked stuff in one day, but we do seem to binge once a month or so. 


So, OP, what did you cook?  Obviously roast (which answers my ? in my last pm), but what else?  Good job on getting so much done!

Good job, OP!


I didn't see this mentioned (though I only skimmed), but I subscribe to this thread.  You may find it helpful.  smile.gif
