Here are a few projects I want to try this year. As I am surfing the web, I always find interesting things I’d like to try, so we’ll see if I can do it. It gives me a chance to be creative in small ways, which is about all I have time or brainpower for!
Homemade Hair Detangler – I have two, soon to be, three girls. We would definitely benefit from more detangler! I’ve only bought it once, but if I can easily make it, I think that would be the best route.
Cork Board – We found a cork board that I think we’re going to hang in the dining room. I’d like to hang a world map and some of of the kids artwork on it. What do you think about painting the actual cork part? We’re going to paint the frame, but I kind of like the idea of painting the whole thing too.
Freezer Meals – I’d like to make a few freezer meals to make life easier after I have the baby in March. I’ll definitely be making some meatloaf because I can throw some potatoes in the oven with it, add a veggie, and dinner is served. I’d love to try these stuffed peppers, but my husband doesn’t like peppers. Could I serve his in something else? What about quiche or pot pie? Do you bake it first, then freeze it? Any other ideas?
I also tried Aunt Sally’s healthy muffin recipe. We ate a few of the muffins and put the rest in the freezer. It’s been nice to just pull one out for breakfast and heat it up in the microwave. Mmmmmm! The recipe is below.
