Happy Sensational Sunday!
Today was a glorious mix of relaxing and preparing for the week, which kicked off with a cuddle session.
My sleep schedule has been all off and although I’m one of those “lucky” people who easily fall asleep (mostly because I’m flat out exhausted) I normally wake up a few times a night and if it’s 4 a.m. or later I have a hard time falling back asleep regardless of what time I went to bed. I can only assume it’s a mix of aging, being “ruined” by the kids and training my body to wake up at 5 a.m. to hit the gym.
At 8 I sprung up and decided it was time to get moving. I was on a mission to kick off the week on the right foot.
I made Banana Oatmeal Cups while the kids played target practice with the Nerf guns.
I also hard boiled eggs, cooked and prepped a spaghetti squash, and assessed the produce situation in my fridge. I’ve decided my new plan is to take any aging produce I have and cook it up or freeze it before shopping for the next week. Today I found a package of baby portobello mushrooms and an onion so I whipped up Mushroom Quinoa for lunch.
Now my fridge was cleaned out, I had a few things prepped and I knew exactly what I needed at the grocery store — win-win-win.
Late morning The Husband was on a yardwork mission and the kids wanted to go out to play. That left me some alone time to FINALLY clean my pig stye of a desk.
It’s gotten way out of hand! Somehow it always ends up to be my dumping ground.
However, give me 20 minutes, a good playlist, a kid-free house and BOOM!
Every time I walk past it I smile.
After lunch I went grocery shopping. ALONE!
It was glorious! And I stocked up on lots of stuff for the pantry and freezer.
Once the groceries were away we watched the Ravens game while the kids were in and out playing. I decided to make Salisbury steak over mashed potatoes for dinner and it came out fantastic!
I’m proud of myself too. First time I made it completely from scratch, no can or dry soup packet to make the gravy and the family loved it! I will totally make it again to measure everything and share on GreenLiteBites.
After dinner we cleaned and closed the kitchen…
and I’m totally ready for Fear the Walking Dead. I just have to fold my clothes first so I’ve gotta go!
Hope you had a great weekend!
