Friday Night Leftovers

  • Last night a friend had us all over for dinner - an early birthday dinner. We get together often, and our kids are in a groove now where they hang out and play nicely. It was awesome. I didn't have to cook, the kids were happy, and we had nice grown up converstation.
  • And this morning! While I was showering, the kids played so well - building a time machine together with blocks. The cuteness kills me.
  • This morning I did a bit of freezer cooking. The website I love, changed some of their content to be subscription access. I still think it's totally worth it. I think it's $72 a year ($63 if you join by the end of September). I made 10 dinners for $90 at the grocery store and it took me two hours in the kitchen. You really can't beat that.
  • While cooking, I realized I haven't been in my vegtable drawers in my frig for a while. Yuck yuck yuck.
  • This weekend we have fun stuff planned - a local fall festival, friends visiting, and a CSA potluck.
  • I'm busy making Amazon wish lists and purging toys in preparation for the kids birthdays. I know it's 2 months away, but if I don't get it out there now, people tend to get the strangest things.

I am doing all the freezer cooking now too. :) It's going to be great. I've just been doubling/tripling recipes though and freezing what we don't eat for dinner.
