I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I ate way too much which always makes it good, right?
In an effort to bring more balance into our lives, my husband and I have decided to institute a day of rest each week. We realized we were working every stinkin' day and not taking any time to relax. So we are going to attempt to make Saturday a day where we don't work on the business, I don't cook or clean, no chores for the kids (can you hear them cheering?) no yard work.....nada! I don't know how it will actually work in practice but we are going to give it a shot. We'll fill our day with lots of lounging, game playing, book reading, library visiting...pure unadulterated laziness. Chris even suggested we turn off the electricity (computers, DVD player, radios, video games) and use candles but I'm not sure I can survive with no computer.
All that to say, I'll be planning make ahead meals for Saturday that just take a little bit of warming up but no actual preparing. This could work out to be a really good thing.
I also scored a huge chunk of leftover Christmas ham from my Mom so that will be added to our meals this week as well as the giant chicken I got on sale last week.
So here we go...
Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, and Fresh Apple Oatmeal
Poached eggs and toast
Breakfast Leftovers (rush to church no time to cook)
Ham and Cheese Quiche (doubled) and green salad
Roast Sticky Chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans
Lentil Burritos with cheese, tomatoes, olives, sour cream, & salsa
Fried Rice (leftover veggies, meat, eggs and rice)
