  1. Day 26, and I'm dying.....

    Thank you. Day 28. It looks like we will fall short by one day. I'm leaving town to see my sick father, and the kids will need sandwiches while I am gone. We will have gone 29 days with 9 people. I think we've done pretty well. This is just a little much for my husband to handle without me. We will continue eating this way when I get back though.
  2. I posted for suggestions in another thread, but I'm dying here. I am cooking for 9 people three meals a day every day. I went into the kitchen to make lunch and found that the egg salad I had planned can't happen. They ate all of the boiled eggs but 6. That is not enough to feed all nine of us. The thought of cooking another meal brings me to tears. I've used the slow cooker, I've baked ahead, I've boiled and scrambled eggs..... I can not seem to get out of the kitchen. We homeschool as well, so we will all be home all day for the rest of eternity. How on earth do I make this easier??????? It's Friday and the fridge is empty again. They are eating everything and I simply cannot keep up. Often there is not enough left for my husband and I. We had to make breakfast twice today. We went through 10 lbs of potatoes in just one dinner. And yes, the kids are helping with food prep, but this is out of control. Any thoughts or advice would be helpful. Please imagine cooking for dinner guests every day all day long......That is what the last 26 days has felt like. On the positive side, we've made it 26 days.
  3. We have 7 very active kids from 15-3. No one has body fat or weight issues. They all run cross country (except the 3 year old) and we homeschool so they are always outside. We are 16 days into our whole 30. We are going through 2 dozen eggs for breakfast and then some. I'm often not getting enough to eat because they are eating a TON!!!! We have always eaten well. We live on a homestead and have a dairy cow. Normally when they are still hungry we say have another glass of milk. We are doing a whole 30 while she is waiting to have her next calf. They ate 10 lbs of potatoes for dinner one night along with their chicken and other veggies. I don't mind the amount of food (so much). But I'm killing myself in the kitchen. Aside from precooking veggies for breakfast eggs, and precooking chicken for lunches, any prep ideas? It's canning season here as well, so I've been chained to the kitchen for the last 16 days. My family loves the food, but I'm exhausted. Any tips or hints? Also, we need more fat. I only have a few that like avocados. We are eating coconut with raisins for breakfast with our eggs and veggies, ranch, pesto, and guacamole. Any other things I can add? Thanks for the help.
