I spent a good portion of my day trying to get ahead (and caught up) before going back to school on Monday. That means I graded a lot (trying to get caught up, to what feels like no avail), cooked a lot, and completed a lot of food shopping. Those tasks, coupled with getting Chris out of the house for a bit and watching Wreck-it Ralph resulted in a very tired Sarah.
Chris has a few more weeks of recovery at home so I wanted to get some meals in the freezer that he can use for lunches while I am at work. Because he loves pasta, I decided to make my first baked ziti. I know, I know. What can I say? I’m Irish, not Italian! But I ended up making a double batch of ziti, so we have one pan in the freezer and one in the refrigerator. I think we are set for a while!
Then, I made some baked eggs that we can use for breakfasts this week and some frozen crockpot meals. That way, I can just toss the meals in the slow cooker before I go to work and I won’t have to waste time cooking when I get home. As an aside, I can’t tell you how much I love Pinterest. All those recipes I have been pinning for months have finally come in handy!
I’m not really a cook, but I can follow a recipe, so Pinterest has been a lifesaver. And while it was tiring, I am glad that we have a bunch of meals already completed for the week. It should make the transition back to school a little easier!
