About once every 4-6 weeks we have a big bulk-cooking Saturday. Emilia graciously comes and bring Marlene to play with the girls while we three adults cook away the morning. Between the three of us we’re able to help with kid needs throughout the morning and also knock out a month’s worth of meals for the deep freeze.
Matt is our wiz at finding Africa-friendly recipes online.
Emilia is my potato cutting buddy and we often enjoy chatting while slicing away. See how terribly sad she is that I’m not sitting right beside her in this exact moment? 😉
Sometimes a snuggly toddler hitch-hikes for a while.
The kids often enjoy a morning of water play, play dough, movies or whatever else they can get themselves into. 😉
Sometimes we go out to lunch afterward with Emilia and Marlene and sometimes we enjoy one of our meals fresh out of the pot with our sweet friends. =)
When naptime hits we are all beat, but we’re happy to cut down on HUGE amounts of meal prep time throughout the weeks since everything is cooked from scratch here.
