  • A healthy bread with most meals:
    • I’ve gotten into really good routines now with making my own bread products and other flour products. And I’ve found, that with a growing family, adding in as many bread products as I can, helps not only with cost but in keeping those bellies full without sacrificing health.
    • IDEAS:
      • English muffins, butter, and eggs for breakfast
      • Ezekiel Waffles for breakfast
      • Bean, egg, and cheese breakfast burritos for breakfast
      • Making 4 sandwich loaves a week:
        • PB&J
        • Grilled Cheese
        • Toast on the side with raw butter
      • Dinners:
        • Easy artisan loaves with dinners
        • Homemade tortillas
        • Herb & Cheese muffins with dinner, etc.
  • Getting back to making my own pantry staples.
  • Homemade cleaning items again.
    • I’ve started first with laundry detergent and dishwasher detergent.
  • Growing & Preserving more of my own food. This might be limited a bit this year, but working on it none the less
  • Much more consistent meal plans. I’d like to develop four weeks of rotating meal plans for each season! I think this will start in the summer. We’ll see how it goes, and I’ll share what I learn as I go.
