Mom and I have been going to take on the task of doing some "thirty day cooking" for some time now. I don't know if you've heard of it or not but it's all the rage here. There are all kinds of books on it and websites but we finally just decided we would make multiples of the recipes we already like and make alot. Somehow, we've never had the energy (go figure) to spend 2 or 3 days in a row cooking up a storm and freezing the meals so we haven't really gotten much of a start. However, today we made a little bit of an inroad. With my good buy on hamburger, Mom made a huge batch of meatloaf and we baked up 7 meatloafs. We had one for dinner but that still gives us a good jump on a month's worth of meals. Now if we can decide on 3 or 4 more recipes we like and just multiply them like that we won't have to cook every night. We really do love it when we have something made ahead. It is worth the effort. I just have to remind myself of that when I'm not feeling like spending a few hours in the kitchen.

We were going to go snow tubing tomorrow at this cool place we like to go to every year but we got a storm warning tonight and have from 1-3 inches coming in and then the temperature is supposed to drop into the twenties but with the windchill it is supposed to feel like only 10 or 12 degrees. That didn't sound like very comfortable conditions to be out in so we called it off. Hopefully, we can find something else fun to do as a family for the holiday.

Well, it's after midnight here. I've stayed up way too late once again. Hopefully, my babies will sleep in a bit. :)
