Do you ever have those days that you just feel like your so full of energy? Yesterday was one of those days for me. I pulled out the produce bins from the fridge and emptied them out. I scrubbed the bins and the fridge out. I washed the apples & grapes that I had in there. I pulled the grapes of the vine (not sure that's what you call it?) & put them in a bowl. It seems like we eat the fruit & veggies better when they are cut/cleaned/etc & ready to eat.
I also had one of those big summer sausage logs. I pulled that out & sliced it up. Then I halved each of the slices. I put ten halves in a snack size baggie with a string cheese (still in the plastic so it doesn't absorb the sausage taste/smell. These will make handy snack packs for our lunches or for April after school.
The last couple weeks have been great since I've been back to menu planning. When I know what we are having it makes grocery shopping easier & since I can write the weekly menu on our erasable white board I also don't get any of the "what are we having for supper?" questions. I'm trying to plan the menu for a couple weeks at a time so that I know what we need for groceries - to avoid having to stop at the store more than once a week. Less trips = less $$$ :)
