Monday:Laundry Day

Warning: Do not attempt this tackle while running low on energy:-)

I knew that I would have alot of laundry to do today so I made some french toast sticks (first time) yesterday. I baked some bread over the weekend sliced it and soak it in french toast mix (milk, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar) overnight. All I had to do this morning was stick them in the oven for a few minutes and breakfast was served. The pictures below are of the bread sliced and lined neatly awaiting their bath. The second picture is of them after they have soaked up the french toast mixture. The sticks turned out delicious.
Now on to the ‘tackle of the day’. Below is a picture of my office desk yesterday. I had so many things to get ironed so I started at about 6:30 a.m. The next two pictures are of my supplies. A basket full of fresh smelling laundry to be sorted and hangers.All of the drawer items are folded and sorted.

All of the pants are ironed and awaiting their hangers. I didn’t get a picture of the shirts, but believe me every pair of jeans was hung with a freshly ironed shirt draped over it. This makes getting dressed easier for everyone especially when we are in a hurry.
My three youngest children asked could they help before I was able to even request their help. Moms, I admonish you to cherish these times because as children grow older there is no guarantee that they will always desire to help you or even spend time with you when they get older. Show them that you care by giving them your TIME.

THE END

  5. Awesome job! That last picture was a great way to end this post (about how long does your basket stay that way, I’m guessing not long!!)
    You should post your French toast stick recipe!

  10. I love making home made bread french toast. I wish my family loved it. :-p

  11. Guys I gotta tell you when the french toast sticks came out of the oven they looked beautiful.

    They tasted better than any I’ve ever had.

    Making them with homemade whole whaet braed gets a thumbs up. They turned out much firmer than when I’ve used store bought bread.

    I just got finished baking and freezing enough for two more breakfast’s.

  12. I do Jen. I only iron them because they get so wrinkled sitting in the laundry basket or dryer unfolded.

    So it’s either I fold them right out of the dryer or I iron them.

  13. Please don’t even tell me that you iron jeans. Now I’m really feeling inadequate as a homemaker. 🙂

  15. Great tackle. Good idea about the double hang. That would save a lot of “matching” hassle. I particularly like your ending. Great shot!
