Bold Turquoise On Live Webisode 2- Preparing for Back to Homeschool and a FREE Printable

This week’s vlog post expounds on the “getting crazy prepared for back to homeschool” ideas I’ve been writing about this week but also offers up a healthy dose of reality!! Check it out and let me know what you think!

 

So, a couple of things about this week’s show!

  • First- once again, I got a little redundant and had a few foilbles. Obviously, if you need to freeze things you will most likely do it in the freezer… duh! Probably didn’t need to say that twice!
  • Also, I SWEAR the piping your muffin batter out into the muffin tray works… ya know, if you’re using actual muffin batter and not just a sticky conglomeration of flour and water for demonstration purposes only! Haha! Seriously- try it! You won’t be sorry!
  • It’s a tad on the long side! Sorry! I’ll try to be a little more succinct in the future!
  • Here is the close up picture of our breakfast meal plan I promised (I also watered it the other day). Once I have the rest of our food planned out I hope to offer this in a printable for you all!

Lastly, I’d be downright tickled if you left a comment and shared what you think of the show so far, if you have any ideas, or if you would like to expound on today’s show at all! This show is for you guys, so I really want to hear your thoughts!

    Do you take a day and do up lots of freezer meals or just do something like 5 batches of pancakes today, waffles another day, etc??

      It really just depends on how much time I have. Some months I will bust it all out in one day- especially if it is just more assembling ingredients/mixing up batters. If I have a lot of actual baking, like the pancakes or waffles, I will typically set aside one day just for those since they take longer.

      Oh Thank you Angie!! I’m so glad to get some feedback about the webisodes- it really helps with how I want to move forward with them!

      To subscirbe I have a bunch of little buttons up in my header (top right). You can either subscribe by email by clicking on the envelope, or by RSS feed by clicking on the little fan-looking symbol. Let me know if you still can’t find it. I’m going to get a little bit easier subscription options in my sidebar soon! Sorry it’s confusing!

    Ok… wait….. I just assumed you cooked ahead and froze COOKED muffins — but you freeze the batter!! How do you know how much batter to freeze in each bag?

      I kind of just eyeball the batter. I figure out how many weeks I’ll be covering and get out that many bags then just keep filling them until they look pretty even- it’s not scientific for me at all! Haha!

      Also, to figure how much batter I generally need, I base it off of what I know about my recipes. For instance, I know that one batch of my banana muffin batter makes 18 muffins. So I know that 2 batches of muffins will give me 3 weeks worth of batter if I plan to bake 12 muffins at a time. Does that make sense?

    Love the idea to freeze the batter! I’ve always froze the muffins but going to try this. I’m loving your 10 steps to get crazy prepared its what I’ve been wanting to do and it’s giving me the kick to do it!
