Happy Sunday to everyone. I hope you're having a productive & relaxing (it's the perfect combo) day today.
Does anyone try a monthly menu plan (vs say a weekly plan)? What are the advantages & which do you prefer? I find I get bored with a weekly menu plan & forget other options. I'm hoping that a monthly menu plan may give me a more holistic look at the recipes we like, balanced meals & allow me to plan more freezer/pantry usage.
What else did we get up to today?
- Nick is attempting to make a non meal delivery service recipe. We're trying to move him into "real" recipes, so he gets comfortable with those. He's making a 30 minute beef stir fry recipe. If it's tasty, I'll share the link.
- I tracked down Sam's missing prescription, and it *should* be in by Tuesday.
- We set up Sam's new laptop - school starts tomorrow, so fingers crossed this works well. Technology has been a real adventure during COVID.
- M & I had a "date". He drove me to the store & a few places & we chatted between stops. Then we went to the winery to pick up our wine shipment. It's completely contactless (you call when you arrive, they put it into your trunk) & had a great chat on the way home about house projects, kids allowances, & changes we want to make in 2021. Every year we try to evaluate our parenting & determine where we can add more responsibility for each kid.
- I went for a lovely walk
- I picked oranges, green tomatoes (hope to ripen in the window) & the last of the jalapenos
- We put away the straggler few Christmas decorations that were still around.
- M cut my hair! I really like it. He cut off about 4-5 inches, & it's now my preferred length. While it's not perfect (my hair has a bit of a wave/frizz that makes it hard to cut), I far prefer it over the scraggly look it had earlier.
- I filled out some paperwork, deposited checks, & put away all of the items we need to return to the vacation house on our next trip (the random socks that always seem to make their way home with us, and the towels we used to clean on our way out.)
