Show Me Your Kitchen

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 


Dear Friends,
How did you do with the Zone Missions this week? I want to see your progress in your kitchen. Email a picture to me at
Your kitchen sees a lot of activity daily, and it will help you with menu planning and meal preparation if you keep it decluttered.
Shining your kitchen sink will bring a smile to your face when you walk into the kitchen.
With a large family with mostly boys, my kitchen stays busy. It seems someone is always eating as we navigate different schedules for those at home and those who work. One evening, I counted 5 separate times when someone was in the kitchen getting food.
Teaching your children to cook and clean the kitchen behind themselves is a valuable tool for you. They can be an asset to you in the kitchen.
On Friday mornings, I plan my weekly menu for the next week. I ask for input from everyone, and they help cook the meals they suggest. If they are able to cook it completely alone, I just supervise them. As they are learning to cook, I assist them as needed.
During the summer, you have access to more fresh fruits and veggies than in the winter. Use this opportunity to serve a lot of raw veggies with your meals. It is healthy for you, and it is easy. If you have a place for a garden, let your children grow some veggies this summer.
What are some of your favorite summer meals?
Today’s Zone Mission is to wipe the stove and microwave.
Your Home Blessing for today is to empty the trash, sweep, and mop.
My menu plan for Friday is take out.
Have a wonderful weekend!
