Posting Plans for This Blog

First, I think of this as a cookbook blog.  By that I mean that I am creating an on-line cookbook of treasured recipes that I have collected over the years.  These are Tried and True, I have made them often, but I am not necessarily making them currently.  I do, however, want to save and share these recipes.  This will not be a picture-heavy blog.  If I post a dish I have recently cooked, I will try to post a picture.  Otherwise there probably won't be one.

There is just my husband and me, and I actually cook dinner only three times a week due to my work schedule.  I always make roasts, meat loaf, casseroles, etc, so there will be leftovers for my husband to eat on the nights I work.  I do make lunch just about everyday, but mostly make soup. 

I did decide that I wanted some plan of order for my posts and this is the schedule I plan to follow:
Monday:  Do It Yourself Groceries--I will share my extensive collection of homemade mixes, spice blends, convenience food and other items that can be made at home instead of purchased at the store.
Tuesday:  Cooking with the Journal--I will share favorite recipes from my large collection of Farm Journal Cookbooks..
Wednesday:  Ingredient Spotlight for Eat at Home.  I am participating in Eat at Home's Ingredient Spotlight series.  I will post a recipe using the ingredient that Tiffany is spotlighting and link up.  Now that I have a blog, I  need to quit hogging her comment space.
Thursday:  Skipping through Blogland.  I will highlight a blog that I have stopped at and  think others should know about.  I will particularly be looking for newer, smaller blogs like mine. Since I also sew and quilt, the blogs may not necessarily be food blogs.
Friday:  Friday Finds and Frugal Tips.  Links to a few other recipes I have found in blogland and a tip or two that I have collected over the years.  Most of the tips can save money if used.
Saturday:  Wild card day. My recipe collection is huge so whatever is on my mind
Sunday:  Day Off or Not?

On to Monday's real post.  DIY Groceries-Homemade Cream Soup Mix-gluten free


  1. I just read your interview on Eat at Home! I love your schedule! I also quilt some and it sounds like your blog is one I'll really enjoy!
    Thanks for blogging!

  2. Well, it appears that I cannot leave a reply under your comment, Kelly; so I will just leave another comment. Thank you so much for your kind words. I am still a bit anxious about this whole blogging thing, but I hope that I will be providing good stuff.


I love to read your comments and suggestions. Hope that you enjoyed your visit to Grandma Loy"s Kitchen.
