    [QUOTE=HauntedGabe;981913]
    When I worked full time, traveled and had small kids like you I learned a few things that really helped. I bought 2 rotisserie chickens from Sam's (you'd need 3 or 4). I took all the meat off and froze them in around one #packages. I bought the 5# pack of ground meat and fried the whole thing, then froze in 1# bags. I also bought from Sam's the large shrunk wrapped eye of round roast. I cooked one half for slicing and nice family dinner the other half I sliced into small bite sized pieces and froze in 1# bags. (granted I didn't do that all on the same day). It was real easy to make meals from good meat that was already prep'd. Ground meat was quick for spaghetti, sloppy joes, taco's etc. Chicken good for fajitas, Chicken'n stuffing, Alfredo etc. Sliced bite sized roast was good for stir fry, excellent Mongolian beef, stew and goulash. Also when I made meatloaf, I made 2 at the same time and froze one.

    I could have dinner on the table in 10-20 minute.
    I take the 5 lb thing a step further. I cook it and then make spaghetti sauce, taco meat, and chili out of it (that would take 15 lbs). Then I freeze that. Takes even less time. And I do the regular hamburger also.

    But lately, I have been too busy for even that! I have chili and spaghetti in the freezer right now.

    Yes it is. I am a fan though of the vessel called the cone for my ice cream.

    I agree with that.

    A hedgehog's heart beats 300 times a minute on average.

    A hippo can open its mouth wide enough to fit a 4 foot tall child inside.

    A giraffe can go without water longer than a camel can.

    A giraffe can also clean its own ears with its tongue.

    Our zoo has a bridge over the giraffes. You can feed the giraffes. It is pretty cool. Those tongues are gross.

    I instruct my students to at least give the first three letters.
    My Dad was great for that instruction. I was part of that experimental age where I was not taught phonics. Sorry peeps, hard to sound out when you were never taught. We learned to read from rhyming, similar words, cat, hat, bat and memorization. My sis was fortunate they knocked that off by the time she hit first grade. I can't spell worth a darn. Spell check is a blessing from heaven for me.

    A fully loaded supertanker travelling at normal speed takes a least twenty minutes to stop.

    That was a horrible way to teach! While oral language is a natural process, reading and writing is not. Memorization was the only way and some people don't have strong enough connections in the brain to establish a ton of those. So glad that went away.

    How cool. I'd love that. When I was a kid we could feed all the zoo animals. When my Mom would take us we would each be given a bag of marshmallows and a bag of peanuts in their shells. It was so much fun to whip food into their cages.
