Small Accomplishments So far ... :)

February 15th, 2016 at 01:21 pm


I don't quite know what's gotten under my skin, but maybe taking Saturday "off" really helped give me a second wind.

I made out my invitations and even attempted to print them out ... No can do. My printer just would NOT accept the invitation paper no matter what.

So ... I wrote them all out by hand. 15 of them. (Some are going to people who I know won't come, but will feel hurt not getting one.) I have pretty decent handwriting (actually get complimented on it fairly often when not in a hurry) so they look fairly decent.

While I was doing that, I had the quinoa and veggies cooking on the stove.

Then after they had time to cool off, I got out the freezer dinner trays I'd bought from Amazon months and months ago ... 20 of them to be exact.

Funnily enough, I didn't plan it this way, but I had just enough food for the 20 trays! My freezer is stuffed (13 trays) and the 7 remaining ones are in my fridge. More than enough for lunch and dinner the next two weeks + (because there'll be a few nights I'll want soup or maybe cereal ...)

Here's some pictures:

Quinoa, baked tofu, steamed veggies, spaghetti squash

Steamed veggies, Veggie egg roll, quinoa, butternut squash

Frozen veggies, Veggie egg roll, quinoa, sweet potato

My freezer with 13 trays, plus other things rearranged.

Hopefully having all these meals ready to go will make me a whole lot less likely to give in to fast food or other temptations the next few weeks. Smile

    WOWza! That makes it so simple to have prepared meals ready to go! Since I'm on the brink of employment, I might have to implement this. And it could offer variety too (and well balanced with veggies included) Smile

    Yep, that's why I bought them all those months ago ... to try to implement a plan where I would have stuff already prepared - so no temptations (or at least a lot less.) Just opened the box today. Smile

    They all look delicious and healthy!

    Wow, busy!

    Nice save with the invitations. It wouldn't occur to me to just write it because my handwriting is terrible. But I always admire nice handwriting.

    Great idea with the meals already prepped, portioning is half the work!

    Okay. I'm in love with the dinner tray idea. It'd be so nice to just grab a tray for lunch and be done with it!

    Also, I did my wedding invitations by hand and it worked out great. It was more like a hand-written note than a formal fancy invitation, but my family loved it.
