It rained and was cloudy here all day. Luscious!
The JumbleBoys made me Nom!Nom!Nom! French Toast Muffins for breakfast. Then JumbleDad took the little one out to the park for a few hours while I snuggled with the cats and read some Jane Austen.
When they returned, they helped clean up around the house a bit before setting off to the library with promises to bring back a sweet treat. I fantasized about life in Gregorian/Regency-period England, drank cheap red wine, ate chocolate, and soaked up the quiet while pondering this crazy thing called Motherhood.
But enough frivolity, on with the plan…
I’ve felt quite liberated, without feeling deprived of all my usual gourmet flourishes, in my new “I’m not cooking much” state. Not that I’m using that time to pack as I’d planned, however. Just enjoying the rest, having decent meals with little effort and a lot less clean up.
Burger Monday: Madeira-glazed portobello burgers, carrots & tater puffs (eeeew!)
Souper Tuesday: Grilled vegveeta (I think there will be vegveeta in my life weekly from here on out) sammiches with Imagine creamy tomato & basil soup (that’s right…soup in a box. Why not give it a go?)
Whatever Wednesday: Happy Vegan Face maple bourbon glazed tempeh, quinoa and roasted broccoli
Carry out Thursday: Chipotle black bean burritos
Pub Grub Friday: Hummus pizza (thanks for the brilliant inspiration HalfPintPixie)
Sari Saturday: Vegan Mania Chana Saag Aloo (thanks for the head’s up HPP)
