Last night, while at the local grocery store, I began planning a menu for the next week. I ask D if what he thought he would like for dinner for the next three days. This drives him nutzoid because he doesn't think about food that way. *grins at you* Nonetheless, if I want beef broth, I have to make a pot roast first. I then collect the stock left over from the pot roast and use that for dishes that require beef broth. Same with chicken/turkey broth. It's that food preservative allergy I have that requires this sort of food preparation. So lined up for the rest of the week are our dinners, that include leftovers for simple soups, stews, and stir-fry meals.
We also picked up a couple of rolling carts for me. There was this sale--buy one get one 50% off. That's a bargain that's very, very hard for me to resist. I could have easily bought several other plastic tubs, drawers, storage totes, and such but I managed to keep it down to a dull roar this time. :D These will help me get my beads and other crafts organized so I can stop using my filing cabinets for junk drawers. That was fine when I didn't have any other place to keep things from the cats--because they love specialties like curling ribbon and stringing materials--but the time for change is upon us.
So what are your plans for the coming New Year? How will you achieve them? How will you measure success?
From our house to yours--Have a Happy, Prosperous, and Safe New Year! See you on the flip-side!
