So, I have been really busy this week and things are about to get MUCH busier. In order to cope with this I am going to be cooking and baking tomorrow to hopefully get myself through to the start of school (which for me, since my children attend an alternative school still, will be AFTER labour day) just in time to do it all over again for school lunches, etc.
Here are some of the sites I love to get make ahead recipes from
I love this concept, and plan to initiate my own low cost dinner plan - I just haven't decided on the exact price yet. And I don't know that I'll be as exact as Erin is (she knows how much 2tbsp of flour is).
Erin (http://www.5dollardinners.com/) links to many of their recipes, and I love the idea of cooking half my months meals in one day, and then reheating them.
I also am a magazine addict. I get Canadian Living, Chatelaine and Today's Parent which give me great ideas.
My final source is Rachel Ray. She cooks on the spot, and is waistline conscious. I never would have ever thought to use chicken stock in my mac and cheese to lighten it up without losing flavour. She also had a great guest on the show once that gave me great ideas about adding veggies to dishes without being able to tell.
So for now, I sign off, with the promise of posting all about my cooking/baking blitz and some of the recipes I use.
