‘Twas the Night Before

August 24th, 2011 · 2 Comments

……..Back to Work Week, People!!

Yes, it’s true I’ve had two and a half months off, oh yeah, baby, being a teacher does have it’s benefits, although 12.5 hours with my two boys has been one heck of a ride!! We’ve been to the beach, the mountains, the air museum (twice), watched lots of movies and had generally good times when just hanging at home. They’ve learned that they can really dive into their cars game and it can literally last all day. Or legos, or trains, or whatever….as long as everyone is getting along, I’m happy.

Going into this week, I’ve had goals to you know, clean rooms, drop off donations, plant a another vegetable garden, cook lots and be rested. Well, let’s just check off two of those things, and hope for the best! My biggest fears are going back to work and having nothing healthy to eat for myself, my husband or my kids–wierd way my brain works, I know. So, today, you get to have a peek at my fridge, because I’m proud to say we are ready for the week!!

Pictured in fridge is 1 doz. hard boiled eggs, 2 large containers of roasted sausage and peppers to be eaten for breakfast and lunch, sliced strawberries, cooked beets, carrots, grilled chicken breasts and a butternut squash sauce to be served with sausage later in the week! Yes, we are good to go!

Now, please pray for a calm and successful return to work and that everyone adjusts easily.

Happy Monday!

    Hello. I’m enjoying reading your blog for the first time! I noticed you mentioned you have beets in your frig. I wondered if you had any good suggestions on how to serve them? I’d love to incorporate them into our family diet and need to find a way to entice my kids to eat them.

    I haven’t really gotten my kids to love beets, no way! They will eat them, though, if they get to put their own “spices” on them. I have no idea why, but, they will sprinkle lemon pepper on them and eat.
