Starting with who I am, Im "Fivekids", I am 26 years old, with a family of 7. It is a large family, but we function very well with alot of planning, structure and organization.
Food and preperation accounts for at least 40% of my daily activities. Those of you with larger families i'm sure can relate! So finding good, healthy, filling, budget friendly recipes is what its all about at meal times.
I've found some fantasic recipes, as well, many different types of meals to add to my weekly/monthly food calendar. It sounds extreme, but I tell you, for someone as disorganized as I am, its one of the most brilliant ideas i've come across from other mothers
with large families.
It also helps for myself, and modivates me to want to make bigger meals, knowing what to make by looking at the calandar every morning.
I am finding that I have a new found love for baking, and I've even suprised myself, the kids and my spouse with how amazing it has tasted. Me? make something edible? For those who know me, it comes as a shock to you as well I'm sure. :P
Some of my favorite things to bake so far are the " ever so kid friendly" Cake pops! Those were VERY popular in this home, so much that now I will be making 100 cake pops for class mates at school, And 50 Doughnuts! ( or as I texted to the love of my life)
"doughbuts" ... I blame who ever thought the N and B should be that close on a key pad lol.
So to wrap this up, I will update, fill in , and keep track of everything I make from this site, and post how well it went in our home.
Feel free to post!
Thanks to all for your time
