The night before my big cooking day, I get a call and my dad had to go to the hospital. God is always working on me an my agenda, and do you know I STILL plan things? I love how he knew I already had a sitter and would be totally available! He is so good. My siblings were at the hospital all night, and they all work, so it worked out perfect that I could be there all the next day. Well, my idea of doing this meal thing in a day obviously didn't go as planned, so I've been doing it in stages. Among the hospital visits and taking care of my children, I have a niece that was having a bridal shower, on the other side of the state. So, the weekend wasn't looking good for cooking. I did some prep work early fri. morning (5 am, yes I'm crazy--did you know I get up at 5 3 times a week?) And I got 1/2 the meals done friday night after the kids were in bed. I did the other half of the meals today, while also entertaining children, bsf leaders meeting, picking up my boarders from school. (Sigh) I'm quite tired. I'm thinking about not getting up at 5 tomorrow and skipping the work out. My plan, which you must know may change at any time without notice, is to post the recipes as we eat them. All of these were recipes I've never tried before, so I can also tell you how good they are. Definitely a little different from my 'au natural' cooking, but not overly processed by any means. I substitue more natural ingredients when I can. Like dry beans instead of canned.
Here is the 'before' shot:
These are'nt even all the groceries, but most everything.
Now I've got to go clean up the kitchen...
Have a blessed day!!
