Planning ahead for a busy week
We have some medical appointments after work on Tuesday afternoon, resulting in me returning later than I care to, in order to start supper. We do still need to eat, and I do not want to stop at some drive through window for many reasons. I need to be proactive, when I know that a situation such as this exists. So, I have a hash making kit. Once home, I will need to start the hash by cutting up and sauteeing some onion, then adding the precooked and cubed potatoes, meat, black pepper (I omit salt as the corning process leaves enough). As that crisps up, I'll set about getting the rest of dinner prepared and we should be eating at the usual time, if not close to it.
Monday afternoon is even worse; I've already decided that I'll be serving the meal sized container of chicken-vegetable-noodle soup that I made today, along with some crackers. Simple, done. Sandwich fillings are at the ready, as are lunch box cookie treats, iced tea is made. It's all a go.
Laundry caught up, not that I ever let it linger once there is a full load to wash. Outfit for tomorrow set out, with a plan B shirt if needed, as I am finding that with recent weight loss, a lot of my tops are too big, and are being donated. I don't have time/desire to try everything on at the moment, so it'll be a divide and conquer effort for now. I've affixed a string top kitchen garbage bag onto the door handles of one of my closets to aid in the donation effort.
