SOL Day 18

There were a lot of tears on TV today and a lot of yelling occurring in my house.  March Madness is complete madness this year!  Here’s what one region of my bracket looks like:

That’s a complete disaster.  I’m rooting for the underdogs from here on out!  Well, in this bracket, at least!

I spent most of my day watching March Madness games while cooking for the week.  I made a few freezer meals for later in the week, including a lemon sesame chicken noodle soup that looks and sounds delicious.  I also made cupcakes to bring to school tomorrow, two more loaves of Irish soda bread, and a Guinness beef stew for tonight’s dinner.  As a result, I did at least 3 loads of dishes in the dishwasher, used up all the butter in the house, and almost emptied the whole bag of flour. I think I spent about 4 hours cooking, but I know it will be worth it later in the week when I don’t have to rush around after school.

I didn’t spend the whole day cooking, though.  My SAT class was canceled this morning, so I was able to sleep in a little.  I spent some time in the backyard with the dogs, prepared their frozen Kongs for the week, and then headed out to run errands.  I was able to get my food shopping done, pick up some dog food on sale, and make some returns at Nordstrom and Old Navy and I still had time to cook!  Sundays usually fly by because I teach for 2-3 hours in the morning, so it was nice to have those hours back for today.  I’m sure I won’t be seeing the same thing when I get my paycheck, though!
