Weekend


Computer troubles again.  Our computer is ill.  Not good.  Just when I'm finally starting to recover from a cold-turned-sinus infection the computer decides it's on hiatus.  It will absolutely not connect to the internet.  Strange.

It's been a rough week and weekend, but I'm finally back on my feet again.  I sure am wishing I'd started my once-a-month-cooking in January.  Why in the world did I decide on February??  It would have been so nice to have meals, bread, desserts, etc. in the freezer just ready and waiting to be popped in the oven when my head's full of junk and I just want to sleep. 

After reading a few articles on prepping meals ahead of time I decided that although I won't be prepping the entire month, I can certainly try a couple of dishes a week made ahead and frozen.  I've got my recipes all picked out.  Along with that, I'm going to go back to grocery shopping once a month.  I liked it when I tried this before, but found if you don't have a month of menus prepared, you end up back at the grocery store before the month's over. 

My magic circle vision board is still a plain white canvas.  Not one ounce of creativity has entered my mind this week.  I did get a little reading done, so that was nice.

Hope you all had a nice weekend.

You poor thing! Please take care of yourself! It's not surprising there's no creativity going on...your head is full of "slime." Sinus infections will temporarily steal your brain. Hope you're feeling much better soon!

Yuck, I'm sorry you've been sick for so long! That's no fun at all. :( Hopefully you *and* your computer will be good as new soon.

Sorry you have been feeling so lousy. Now your computer has it too! So sorry. Just take care of yourself for now. That's all you need to do.

My laptop decided to start messing up a while back and today my sweetie decided it need a fresh start. So I have his net-book for a few days. Going from a 17 in. screen to 10 in one is hard on these old eyes. I shore hope you get yours fixed soon. I know I will be happy when I get mine back.

I'm sorry that your computer isn't feeling well, but I'm glad that you are!! I'll be interested to read about how your menu planning goes, or maybe even what you're reading! :-)

Oh, I'm sorry you're feeling so crummy! Computers can be so frustrating!!
Okay, I want to know more about your month's worth of meals...I've been thinking that would be a good thing for me to do once the goats are fresh, but am not sure where to start.
feel better!!

Good luck on your food prep adventures! I used to make large batches of dinners, just to freeze for later. We don't currently have a freezer, though, so making enough for leftovers just means more food waste.
