Community Update and a New Topic for the Week.

4개월 전

First quick update on the community. Apologies for it looking a bit unadorned at the moment, @ryivhnn's sister has kindly been working on a profile picture for us, so we have something in the works. In the meantime, I've uploaded the owl picture.

@crosheille has kindly agreed to be an admin for the community, along with myself (minismallholding).

I want to start crossposting some older, pertinent homeschool posts into the community. I've already done one, but did it from my personal account. I want the future ones to go through the @HomeEdders account. For anyone not using Steempeak, the crossposts will look a bit disappointing, because they just show a link. Time will tell if this will be rolled out the same with the other front-ends.

With everything going on, I've been a bit lax in keeping on top of the topic of the week. So thank you to @crosheille for giving me the prod I need along with some ideas. With us all brain frazzled, she suggested a more relaxed topic and I think a pooling of ideas on feeding a busy family could be a good one here. So this week we're inviting you to:

share your favourite go to snack and lunch menus

I'm a terrible parent so everyone has to sort out their own lunch XP

If we're going out I'll take leftovers (if going to homeschool group because there's a microwave) or sandwiches and muesli bars and fruit, and am trying to be more organised to make pasta salad and/or nuggets and things like that as my kids are constantly hungry. Haven't succeeded yet because I hate the kitchen XD

Sorry about the profile picture thingi, there was a bit of confusion but I think we got it sorted now.

I don't like cooking much either. Especially when I spend ages cooking something and someone says they don't like it. 😠 I prefer anything quick to do, but there's not much choice that's healthy when doing that.

Uhg! That's the worst! And it is even more frustrating when everyone liked it when you made it before, just, not this time. Blah.

I'm glad it's not just me! 😆

Same. 🌱

My family is sort of lazy about cooking. We usually only make one main meal a day - brunch or linner - and then eat leftovers or snacks like fruit, veggies, yogurt, cheese or smoothies whenever we are hungry again. I guess it isn't really lazy, since we do make everything from scratch, but different. Cooking this way has really freed up more time and kept both my partner and I from being in the kitchen constantly prepping, cooking, and cleaning. The kids also know how to cook a small meal for themselves if they need or want something else. It works for us.

I think this can be a good approach and is often necessary. You really can end up spending all day in the kitchen otherwise and the children learn how to cook this way too. How many younger adults can't cook because they were never taught? Even some of our own generation only know how to follow the instructions on a packet when it comes to cooking.

So true. Making sure our kids can take care of their basic needs is a main value of our family homeschooling philosophy.

Thank you @minismallholding! I know we have all been 🤯 lately and needed a more relaxed topic to write about. I’m slowly getting my head back together lol!

It is a pleasure joining you in administering the HomeEdders Community. Thank you for the invitation <3

Glad to have you by my side with the HomeEdders journey.
