Today I've planned a pizza night... but... I don't feel like it.
I don't feel like the hassle of making the dough (in the bread machine, so seriously, I should get a grip!)
I don't feel like chopping ingredients. I also don't feel like going to get an onion because I forgot to do it when I was in the shop about three seconds ago.
I have a sinus headache and I am feeling decidedly sorry for myself. Which is irritating, because I have a lot to do today.
I think, instead, I'm going to do schnitzels and veg, with a potato bake.
The veg can steam (no work), the schnitzels can air fry (no work) and the potato bake (work) is optional, depending on how I feel by the time I get home.
I love Plan to Eat - it's making my evenings so much easier - if I don't have to think when I get home, my day ends well!
I was telling my mother how clever I am, all chuffed with myself, for signing up with Plan to Eat, and she said, "Oh! I used to do that. I planned the meals for a month and stuck it on the fridge. That morning I would look for the date, see what the meal was and take it out the freezer. I would spend about 4 days solidly cooking and freezing so the only thing I had to do was reheat, and cook the veg!"
It just goes to show - you can never one-up a parent! They really have Been There Done That!
She also said, "And what man is ever going to know he's had cottage pie on the 15th of every month?!" I had to giggle. I don't think our Dad's would have noticed if they had cottage pie every Thursday - they were a lot less involved in the home management system than the Dad's of today are.
Anyway... Have a fantastic day. Remember to look at the colours of the leaves and the flowers, and remember God made them just like that, because He knew you'd love it.
