Next week, most lunches and dinners will be in the dining hall. Can’t wait! It saves us so much money and time, and it is a great way to get to know the staff
Prep for meals
- Veggie tray
- Move frozen meat to the fridge
- Make breakfast casserole
- Thaw steel cut oats
- Bake bread (only because we love it!)
I buy pre-cut veggies when I can and already boiled/peeled boiled eggs. I know it costs a little more and it’s worth it at this point. I may go back to prepping these things eventually. I’m also probably going to reduce the amount that I make Greek yogurt. It hasn’t been turning out!!
My Plan for the week
- Monday- Robert and I will go to town to pick up the love seat and maybe have a lunch date. We are making dinner for my mentee.
- Tuesday- I’m reading to Levi’s class, AA, lunch, library time, then a birthday party for a little one here that’s turning one.
- Wednesday- Bible study at noon (at my house), and I might have a friend over for coffee.
- Thursday- Day at home, then AA at 7:00pm
- Friday- Rest day, and I might have a friend over for coffee.
- Saturday- Family day
- Sunday- Church, lunch with the pastor, counseling, maybe the park
As you can see, Monday and Tuesday are my only busy days this week! That’s much different from last week!
Also, daily chores will happen and my schedule chores will happen.
I hope you have a great week! What are your plans for the week and for meals?
