Friday On My Mind

July 20, 2012 at 7:59 am 2 comments

Oh thankyou Lord! It is finally Friday.  It has been an excruciatingly long week for me.  I don’t know why, but this week I have been extremely tired and I’ve been getting to bed by 10pm, so I don’t know what’s going on.  I’m just relieved the work week is over.

One thing I did do this week which has helped to ease my stress, was to create a meal plan for the week.  I picked out what I was going to cook for the week last Sunday and made sure I had all the ingredients I needed, weeknights have been a breeze.  Some of the meals were hits, some not so much but that’s ok.  At least I wasn’t staring into the refrigerator abyss at 5 o’clock wondering what I was going to make for dinner.  I got home, looked at the calendar and made dinner.  Easy, peezy.

My daughter, Emily is making dinner tonight: frozen ravioli with sauce.  Simple but it’s a start.  I want my kids to learn how to cook a few meals for themselves to get them on the road to independent living.  My eldest, Fiona, will be going to college after this year so I really need to get things going.  Em is my first volunteer, she’s such a good kid.  I’m going to try to have the kids rotate and make one meal a week.  They will be in charge of the whole thing, planning, choosing a recipe, shopping for ingredients and cooking.  I’ll let you know how it goes.

    I remember a cook book when I was about to start college called “How to Boil Water”. You may want to have Em and Fi take a peak at it…should be a good, easy start to kitchen stuff.
