Wow. I'm totally in awe of you cooking from scratch mammas out there. Maybe I'm a bad multitasker, but I can barely find time to cook anything, let alone make something from scratch!
How do you do it??? (I didn't have time to read all the posts, but I'd love some tips!)
I only have one DD, but she's fairly high needs. That, and my DH doesn't like fruits and most veggies so I think I've mentally given up for now. Stupid, I know.
I'd trade some of my kitchen skills for some of the homeschooling skills the rest of you have. And with high needs kids you have less time for cooking.
I don't commute since I work from home, and I have some free time in the morning when the kids are at school, so I can knock out a lot of stuff ahead of time and stick it in the freezer or fridge. I don't kid myself that I'm super-organized, I just happen to have bonus time in the morning that allows me to do these things. When I was a single mom with an infant who never slept I never got anything done, yk?
In fact, it's just been since I went back to working from home that I was able to get these things done with the illusion of efficiency. When I worked outside the home something was always left undone and the house was a wreck.
