I'm well aware that the following concept may seem kinda odd to most families, and quite honestly, it seems kinda odd to ME to write about it ... because it's such a normal part of how we do things here in Gosselin Land.
About three times a year, typically in August before school starts, in November or December around the holidays, and sometime over spring break, I pull out the large mixing bowls, the huge stand mixer (I think I need a restaurant grade mixer because that thing is just never big enough!), and rally all of my willing kids and, almost, in the blink of an eye, together we turn into a full blown bakery! The goal is to fill our freezers with hundreds of prepackaged school lunch desserts! And that, with eight kids eating school lunches for about 180 days a year, is quite a feat! In fact, by my quick calculations, I pack 1,440 lunches each and every school year!
