Make your own convenience foods

I forgot about my blog:(  Life and it's responsibilities had me in its grip. 

But, I'm going to try and be a good blogger and post.

The past 3 weeks, I've been sick with a cold.  Yuck:(  That caused me to be a little lazy and I went to the grocery store and bought cookie mixes instead of making cookies from scratch.  Bad meVery bad me.

So, I've started making up mixes of things that I use a lot of.  I used my quart size canning jars to hold the ingredients in and made up 7 batches of pizza dough mix, 6 batches of oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mix and 2 batches of applesauce cookie mix.  It took 15 minutes to do this and has saved me lots of future time and money.

What kinds of things do you make up ahead of time?
