It is time to head out to the market. I laid out the grocery ads and carefully planned my menu for the week. Then I made a list of all the ingredients I needed. I went through the pantry shelves, and checked off each item I already have on hand. My grocery list is fairly small, so I am happy.
I have to spend an enormous amount of time in the kitchen today. I need to clean, put away groceries and prepare a late supper.
I will also post an elegant menu on the wall near the kitchen. Everyone will be able to see what our "nightly" suppers will be. I want them to look forward to eating home cooked meals.
I also need to do some baking- fresh muffins and cookies and cake. These will be the snacks to fill in the gaps throughout the day. There will also be biscuits during the week.
I will buy oranges and grapes, and serve a little on the side of our supper plates on some nights.
In a little while, I will leave my cozy, warm home and head to the shops. I will select groceries to fill up my kitchen pantry. Then I will come home and dutifully, and happily get back to my homemaking.
Make it A Place They want to Come Home To. (Even when you don't know what is for supper.)
