  1. I am so, so, so busy with my newly adopted (four of them!) children that I am Homeschooling and another two going to college that I had all but given up even trying THM anymore. I was just too tired to spend any more time on anything. Whew! You have absolutely no idea how much I appreciate you doing all this work and sharing it. Bless you 100 fold! <3

    1. Hi Tracey! All breakfasts, lunches and snacks are pirtioned to just feed me, unless otherwise noted. All the dinners are portioned for 6. My kids are not teenagers yet so if your boys need more to eat then maybe do some crossovers for them.

  5. The creamy broccoli soup recipe… how many servings does it make and how much is a serving?

    1. It feeds my family of 6, but my four kids are younger. I would say a cup and a half is a good adult serving. My kids also put crackers in their soup so it seems more filling to them with a smaller portion.

  6. I'm curious to know if it's ok to just drink water instead of the drinks listed on the menu.
