Money Monday

I know you had heard that time = money.
But do you know how true that really is?
I know you've also heard that if a Mama were to be paid for all the things she does for her family, she would need to be paid something like 2 millions bucks a year...
I was thinking of this today, Mother's Day.
I have been a huge fan of multi tasking from way back... from birth... like most women.
Come on... you know and I know that we can all talk on the phone, fold the laundry, nurse a baby, and cook dinner at the same time.
Today, I'm going to talk about cooking for our families, and things we can do to simplify this task, chore, delight... whatever you think of it.
For those of you whose HUSBANDS do all the cooking...
Now for all of us NOT so blessed... This post of for YOU!
I have a blog that I don't write in very often right now, but it is still active...
and I really like the blog.
It's called
I really and truly do each and every thing I write about on that blog.
IF YOU NEED HELP ON HOW TO CUT DOWN ON THE TIME AND ENERGY you spend every evening cooking and planning meals... please visit this blog.
I haven't written on it in about three weeks, but not because it isn't valid... it's because of that stupid snack bar I'm running. I only get time to write for one blog, and this one is my main one.
So go visit it and tell me if you can use any of the concepts I came up with.
Have you noticed... this blog is called crazy, and that one is called sane.
Maybe cooking is my Zen, and I didn't even know it.
Saving time equals MONEY in the bank to me.
My MEMORY MAKING BANK. The less time I am prepping and slaving in the kitchen, the more time I can teach and help my kids cook with me and we can enjoy ourselves in the kitchen... hurry and worry free.
Prep is the key to success in the kitchen. Hands down.
Check it out.
