But now we have a few no travel weeks so we need more!!! We need serious food!
Stuff for breakfasts and lunches and dare I say this...actual sit down at the table dinners!!!
So...off to the the grocery store by 10 o'clock...now we are stocked and ordered and organized...menus are set...we have fresh food until the week end.
The refrigerator is happy and clean and full...the dishwasher emptied, the table set, dinner prepped...and I have hours to read and check email and watch the Law and Order marathon for the ten millionth time...
I even made 4 jars of layered salad...they look beautiful!!!
There are recipes online everywhere. This one came from The Kitchn by way of Angela from her blog "Oh She Glows".
It's a variation on a Whole Foods ready made salad. You can use whatever you like.
I used edamame and green peppers and celery and quinoa and tomatoes and black beans...oh and carrots...they look lovely in my refrigerator and my husband can grab one and the homemade gingery soy dressing and his lunch is ready to go.
The only thing that will bother him is why he will have to take another container to dump his salad in...
I will hold his hand through this and tell him he can manage...he loves eating at his desk...with a packed lunch from me...something I started a while ago because it was fun but now it isn't any more but he loves it...we even bought him a lunch box.
Finished this...quite yummy.
Reading this...really yummy.
Lots of delightful books found their way to me last week...I will sort through them soon.
I am in a relaxed mode now that everything is done.
