Homemaking ABCs

I got this idea from over at The Home Authority. Pretty clever.

1.Aprons – Y/N? If Y, what does your favorite look like?
I offered my grandma an apron. When I handed her one of my ‘older’ ones, she said, “What? I don’t get to wear the new one?”, I realized I was hoarding my special apron from sassyapron on etsy. So I tied it over the one she had already put on
Oh no. This photo was not at all staged. *wink*

2.Baking – Favorite thing to bake: Bread–love to experiment, love yeast, sourdough and quick breads, love the kneading

3.Clothesline – Y/N?

4.Donuts – Have you ever made them? oh yes-wonderful snow day activity

5.Every day – One homemaking thing you do every day: make food, pick up, change diapers, wipe counters ect.

6.Freezer – Do you have a separate deep freeze? and how we love it. We have a 1/4 of a beef in there, lots of all natural chicken, extra meals I’ve cooked from doubled/tripled recipes

7.Garbage Disposal – Y/N? so necessary, even though most of our disposal bound leavings go into the bucket for the chickens.

  1. Oh wow chick! Where did you find the time to do this….I LOVED reading it…all so normal, just life. the one thing SA seriously need though are some funky, sexy dang aprons. I have never owned one cos they are all so naff and aging.

  2. Love your vintage kitchen, by the way, especially your crate end decorations. Great idea!

    I really like your apron pic, and got a chuckle out of Cadrian reaching for the bowl of your mixer as though he knew there was something yummy being mixed up in it, lol.
