Psalm31:27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the
bread of idleness.
Cooking Day will be here in 16 hours and 3 minutes. My weeks menu consists of:
Soak 2 lbs. of beans for 1 hour, in water that has been boiled. (2 pots- 1 pot with black beans one with pinto beans)
Fry 2 lbs. of ground turkey for nachos. Cool and freeze in ziploc bag.
Boil 6 chicken breast for 20 min. Dice 3 breast for Arroz con Pollo and shred 3 for BBQ’d chicken sandwiches. Freeze in separate ziplocs.
Shape 2 lbs. of seasoned ground meat for meatballs (uncooked). Freeze individually on a cookie sheet. Place in ziploc for the freezer.
Mix 2 gallons of powdered milk.
Use 2 quarts of the milk to make chocolate milk.
Combine the ingredients for baked oatmeal. Stick in the oven for 40 min.
Make banana bread batter. Bake for 45 min.
Make a pot of grits, cool, add cheese and egg. Bake for 1 hour. Cool and put in the fridge.
Chop a head of cabbage. Place in ziploc and stick in the fridge.
Make 1 gallon of apple juice from (3) 12oz. containers of frozen juice.
Boil 6 cups of water. Add 6 family size tea bags and steep for 5-10 min.
Fill 2 qt. container halfway with ice and add sugar. Remove tea bags and pour hot tea over the ice. Stir and refrigerate.
Rinse soaked beans. Cover with water, bring to a boil, turn down and simmer for an hour or so. Cool and separate into containers that will hold a 1/2 lb. of beans or into qt. sized ziplocs.
This is my Saturday morning. It takes me about 2 hours to prep. But saves me about 10 hours during the week. It also saves me the headache of trying to figure out what to make.

What a neat way to have everything planned ahead and done! You are very inspiring, I really need to look into doing more precook/preprep work in the very near future.
I don’t suppose you could share the recipes for the baked oatmeal and the baked grits casserole?
