Sunday Food Prep

Saturday was my daughter's 15th birthday party... houseful of teenagers, lol! She had a great time.

Sunday Food prep is completed... my last one for I don't know how long. I made a pork roast (drizzled olive oil then sprinkled on Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb), and sliced that up into 4-5 ounce servings. I boiled 24 eggs, shelled and bagged in twos.  I also browned 1lb of lean ground beef for tonight's Taco Salad. I washed & chopped broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, asparagus, snow peas & cherry tomatoes and filled my Ziploc steamer bags (add 1 tsp coconut oil & a sprinkle of Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb). My grain for the week is brown rice. Breakfasts are Chobani 2% greek yogurt (plain) with ground flax seed & half a cup of fresh berries (blueberries, blackberries and raspberries). Other fruit in the house: apples, bananas, clementines, grapefruit.

Once that was all done and put away, I prepped the two crockpot soups/stew.  I chopped chicken breast, potatoes, carrots, onion, mushrooms and placed in a large ziploc, then added the seasoning and contents of one small can of diced green chilies, sealed the bag & tossed it in the freezer.  Took another large ziploc and added my 2 lbs of stew meat, chopped veggies & seasonings, then placed 1/2 cup of pearl barley in a smaller ziploc and added that to the larger bag, zipped and tossed in the freezer.  Now all the hubby has to do is toss the bag contents in the crock pot, add the broth, and turn it on.

Tonight's dinner is the taco salad, as I mentioned, then tomorrow is BBQ Beef sandwiches (my beef will be on a bed of shredded cabbage, no bun), Wednesday is leftovers, Thursday before I head to the surgery center, I'll put the chicken legs and bbq sauce in the crockpot so the family has dinner that night (along with salad). Friday is Crockpot Chicken Soup, Saturday is Chicken Enchilasagna.  That should take care of all the meals and leave lots of tasty leftovers. 
I've done all the laundry, washed the sheets, cleaned up my room, finished the food prep, printed the food instructions, filled my prescription, laid in a supply of books, yarn & knitting needles... I think I'm ready.

Now, as long as I put it out of my mind, I won't feel the nervous butterflies.
