Planning...

So, it's time to call in my food order. I think I've remembered everything, but there's a supermarket 3 miles up the street, and I can dispatch people if I've forgotten anything. This will probably be enough food (excluding milk, of course) to last until the week before Christmas. (yes, there's store bought bread on this list, sufficient for sandwich making for the next few days, while I make other things.)
And my daughter brought me these flowers when she was home in October. I just found the picture on my camera. Isn't she artistic?

Do they bring a forklift to your house? I've never even seen a case of margarine before. (Pretty sure I could sneak into a dining room chair and you'd never notice.)

Would you have time to swing by our place in the morning and whip up a few dishes? No? Guess I'll be eating my mother's turnips again then.

Wow. I got used to MJ's restaurant order when she was running the firehouse kitchen, but that's crazy!!

Marjie, here's a hint from me. Just do what I do and buy one of everything from the whole supermarket hahaha. Kids, just like a plague of locusts only hungrier. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

I am so impressed.. The only food that comes into our house in amounts to last for days and weeks and even months, is... Bundys.. just bought 3 x 15 kilos.. will last for appr. 2,5 months...

But I guess with a family the size of yours, planning ahead is surely a need to have, and not just nice to have... like in "I am definitely going to plan ahead,starting right... er..tomorrow!"

We did our shopping yesterday. We bought a 26 pound turkey for Christmas. Yes that's for the two of us plus ten little turkey loving helpers. For Thanksgiving Rob is making lasagna. Trouble is I couldn't find the lasagna pan so this morning we made another trip to get a new pan.
