I got a book a few years ago called "Cook for a Day, Eat for a Month". And I followed the rules and it was great...... and then I forgot about it.
I was cleaning ( I know - you can gasp now!!) and found it again, and thought - wow - we really liked having meals prepared and ready for us... it freed me to work with the horses, help WM do some roping, and.... sadly... meant that I could say - Yes, I can help you do chores..... We didn't remind anyone of that part...just sayin'
We went on a quick spring break , and came home Friday. Little Bit and I hit the market ( okay Sam's Club) to get the rest of what we needed - and started cooking.
I had 2 hours Friday night, 2 hours Saturday Morning, and 5 hours Sunday - I think that combined made a day..... and at the end.... I have 32 Freezer meals! ( and had Sunday Dinner all finished)
Do I look like a chef? Ha ha - I know... I still get the giggles over it - but that is Spaghetti, Ziti, Lasagna, Mexi Chicken, Broccoli Chicken, Scalloped Potatoes with ham, Meatballs, Tater Tot Casserole, Broccoli Ham Casserole, and Chicken Soup...
Which frees me for this:
and to torture this child
