Weekend Clips

Thursday was fun!! I participated in a Freezer Meal Workshop and I am SO happy that I did.  It was a little fast paced, as we did 10 meals in under 2 hours, but holy moly, does it feel good to have some frozen meals on hand from now until baby boy!  Some days you just don't feel like cooking, going out, or ordering a pizza. Just take one of these meals out, defrost, and cook!

I just love cooking, so I do feel bad when there are nights I don't feel like cooking.  This idea is perfection!

My friend Cathy was super organized and had the workshop flowing successfully.


Some of the meals included burgers--I used up our ground venison! 8 patties, which is kind of a lot for us, but hey we can entertain now!



Cathy was so organized, she had labels for our bags, so it literally takes the thinking out when we go to cook up our meals.



I had TWO huge coolers filled.


And I should have laid them on their side, oops, but my meals all stacked in!


Friday we spent just the three of us. {speaking of burgers, I finally got mine!}


Saturday I was organizing, cleaning and I made eggplant parm casserole and homemade gnocchi.  It was a tad soft, so I need to work on that recipe.


Someone doesn't like waiting for her food.


Sunday morning was an impromptu play date--Brooke loved the little house and the sandbox.


So much that she fell asleep on the way home.


Only to awaken on the way to Joey's grandma's house!  She got to run around and stuff her face with fresh tomatoes.


Looking at the sheep.





Twirling.


Eating those tomatoes again.


And great grandma's homemade chocolate chip cookies.



We came home, I cleaned up the kitchen while both Joe and Brooke fell asleep.  The house was quiet, but I could hear the crickets chirping, with a slight breeze…I busted out a leadership/business book that caught my eye and started reading.  I thought Joe would like it, but he doesn't really have the time to read a whole book, so I thought I could read it and we could talk about it.  It's really good!


I saw it posted on Facebook as a few of the leaders in AdvoCare were reading it and it just fits right up my husband (and my) alley.  It's all about how some ideas take off, what makes people tick and why certain things are more popular.  Good stuff! I grabbed it on Amazon, as they have the best price.


I really only try to buy books that I will reference again or that I want to write in.  If it's a cheesy silly beach read, I will make an effort to just get a loan copy, but something like this I liked being able to take notes in. #oldschool #englishmajor #foreverstudent
