I would like to go back to Friday and do this weekend over again. It was far too short. I did, however, manage to get some work done, the grocery shopping completed and keep my house relatively clean. I also attended a baby shower and filled out the paperwork for our new car (new to us) because the old one is no more.
I was so happy just to have the grocery shopping done, my menu had to kind of come together despite all the things I’d meant to get and didn’t because of the little people pounding on the inside of my eyelids. It’s okay, though. We have more food than we can eat, and I’m thrilled at the prospect of working with what we have. If I decide there’s anything I absolutely must have, I’ll use it as an excuse for a mid-morning walk. I need to get out of the house more anyway. Otherwise, we’ll be waiting to purchase the tuna until the day we’re going to make it, so I could always squeeze a few other randoms in there, right? No one will notice.
Monday – Angel hair pasta with a lemon butter sauce and shrimp scampi, steamed garden vegetables
