I know some people who schedule a baking day, cooking day, or kitchen day. Maybe I should do that. At this point, I just add my kitchen tasks to my weekly to-do list and accomplish them as I have time and inclination. This week: mayo, bread, bagels, bierrocks (Russian Mennonite hot pockets), apple butter, apple chutney, and dried apples.

Let me tell you, this morning I did not have inclination. This morning I was resentful. I couldn't believe people eat so much and a meal is coming around again.
Now I have a batch of bierrocks for the freezer to go in school lunches. I also made bagels, pizza cups, and bread this morning, plus fed my family two meals (pancakes and then miso soup plus scrounged leftovers). It sure feels good to sit down right now! And my attitude, with all those homemade good things shielding my family from the cold bad world, is much improved.
