Ok, so I was at a friend's little girl's birthday party yesterday and she insisted on sending a tray of spinach stuffed shells home with me when she heard I hadn't yet started preparing meals...this was a bit of a wake-up call for me.
So I had a marathon cooking/baking session in my kitchen today. Luckily the weather was nice and I could let DS1 play in our fenced backyard while I went crazy in the kitchen. I made:
-2 meals worth of ground mexican turkey
-1 meal worth of shredded mexican chicken
-1 meal worth of plain shredded chicken
-1 meal of marinated BBQ chicken breasts (uncooked)
-1 batch of yeast dough - to thaw and make into pita/calzones/etc
-double batch of breakfast cookies
-double batch of buckwheat waffles
-2 loaves of banana-date bread
Of course this only amounts to a few meals and a few snacks/breakfasts...I've still got a lot to do!
While working on this food, I also went through my "deep storage" pantry in the basement and my kitchen pantry. I refilled all the canisters in the kitchen and consolidated/organized all the dried goods in my basement. I also organized all the containers on the shelves in the basement and kitchen. So now I can find things easier and I won't have to refill anything in my kitchen for a while.
I also boiled a 1/2 dozen eggs for DS and I to eat this week - I've been having a hard time getting enough protein in my diet.
Man my legs are aching! Time to watch Dr. Phil and chill till DS wakes up...
