Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I’ve been busy as a bee working on some new stuff that I can’t wait to share with all of you. Aside from the Holiday Planner printables, I’ve also been working on some other goodies and surprises that I can’t wait to share with you. I finally have the autumn decorations taken down, and I’m itching to start digging through the Christmas stuff, but I’m being really good. I can wait until December… I hope! To help take my mind off Christmas decorating and how many more days I have to wait to start decking the halls, I decided to turn my attention to some holiday stuff that I could get going on soon: the Holiday Baking. Before just jumping in and baking up a storm I thought I’d take some time to make a plan, and you know what that means right? More free printables to share with all of you!
This year I’m trying something new. Our Teen is taking Foods class again this year, and I plan to let him do most of the baking. Gasp! Yep, I’m a little nervous about that, but I figure if I could give up my role as turkey cooker, as I did last Thanksgiving, then I can share the baking role. To help us coordinate and plan our baking sessions I created a few printables to help us out.
The first planner page is to keep track of what we’re planning to make, how many batches, will/can they be frozen (in other words, made ahead of time) and also to help us keep track of whether or not we’re making them for a party or as a gift. Having a list of recipes we’re making, or wanting to make, and where to find the recipe is going to save us a ton of time.
Next, we need to find the time to do the baking, and we need to make sure we have what we need. This is where the Baking Plan will come in really handy.
