So Friday was supposed stripes and plaids, but the dish just sort of ran away with the spoon and something had to give. So my stripes are late and I forgot about plaids entirely, but I think it will all be ok.
How were the weekends out there? Looking back on mine, there wasn't any real reason that it was crazy, but it felt a little crazy anyway. Realizing that the new job does not in any way put me in the neighborhood of our preferred grocery store, along with the realization that I am going to get home later than I used to, along with days lately where B would probably freeze permanently to the scooter if he ventured out on it resulted in our doing something this weekend that I kind of thought I would never be into: figuring out all our food for the week and going to the store once on Saturday. Insane, I know. I mostly wanted to do it because I love spending Sunday cooking at a very mellow and relaxed pace, and together we can easily roll out a huge pan of lasagna (with leeks, mushrooms, kale, spinach, garlic, yum), roasted beets and sweet potatoes for lunches, a sort of cream cheese garlic herb spread to go with the roasted veggies on a rye bread sandwich, a pie crust for quiche later in the week, and the aforementioned loaf of bread for the week. Plus now I will no longer look at the clock, realize that I need to get the hell out of the library or my husband will think I have gone missing, and then remember that we have no idea what we're eating for dinner. So far it's all good, but we'll see how long we last.
I know, it's so exciting you are all on the very edge of your chairs. Sorry to get your heart rate up on a Monday morning. Ahem.
