Homeschooling is tough enough, but add cooking three meals a day, and you can lose your mind trying to stay organize. So, I made a video sharing how to organize recipes and how I tried to stay on top of all the cooking a homeschool mom has to do.
It’s nothing fancy…in fact they are all very easy ways you can get your recipes organized.
If I were you . . .
Once you get your Kitchen Binder, print a couple copies of page 3. Use your printouts to write down your go-to meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’ll have 7 breakfast ideas, 7 lunch ideas, 7 dinner ideas. That’s a huge help on a bad day. When you’ve had a horrible day, choose one of the meals on your “Go-To” List.
As I mentioned in my earlier post about Easy Family Meal Ideas for Homeschoolers, I don’t like to make lunch. Never have. Never will. So, I made a list of lunches that did not include sandwiches. I used that list many days to fix our kids’ lunch.
Another idea to use your Kitchen Binder is to make a gift for your mom (Mother’s Day is tomorrow) or a friend. Print out 10 recipe pages. Write out your family favorites and put them in a pretty binder. As I mentioned on the video, I made a Recipe Book of family favorites for Ashley and Gentry when they got married. It’s an easy way to collect family recipes.
I know it takes some time for you to write, so share the writing with your kids. Let them copy recipes for their Copywork. It’s a creative way to let them practice penmanship. They can each chose 3 of their favorite meals and copy those recipes.
Remember, if you grab your Kitchen Binder before May 15th, you’ll also receive a $5 Coupon you can use on The Build Your Bundle Sale
