That is terribly ambitious, we will see how it goes. Generally, the breakfast foods and dinner rolls get cut if I run out of time. I still need to sit down and line up the order of cooking and correspond it to my burners and available pots. I also need to do the grocery list, but that won't take long. Last month went really well, wish me luck.
