Woo Hoo! That means I have three more work days to maintain sanity before reaching the goal of 10 days of winter vacation.
Early on duirng winter vacation I plan to spend an entire day in the kitchen cooking, prepping, and freezing meals for a month. It saves me a lot of time and money to have those meals at my finger tips ready to go. All of the major mess and fuss is behind me, and after working all day I can pull a nice meal together in a matter of minutes. No more wondering what to fix for dinner, it is alreadey planned out and ready to go. I don't use any special books or recipes, I use what I know we love and will eat.
The benefit of having all of those meals in the freezer is that if you get sick, like I did, there is still a meal waiting in the freezer for the guys in the house to eat, without you having to fuss over it. It is also helpful when you've been sick and your hubby volunteers you to fix a pot of chili for the local snowmobile club winter cookout and you already have it made and in the freezer.
After I get all my meals in the freezer that will leave me a lot of days to spend in the soap room playing in the bubbly fun! I can harldy wait! :)
