Some days even I wonder what I am thinking! In fact, that has been a pattern in my life. I am either really on or really off... no real middle ground here.
So last week I was "off" the first 3 days of the week. Really off. I got out of bed, but I might as well have just stayed in bed considering the lack of any accomplishments at all. By the time Thursday came around, I knew I couldnt live another day like THAT, so I dragged myself up and out.
Ok, That is good. Way to go Anne. Join the world of the living.
Uh, Yeah. So what was I thinking when the first thing I did was to drive 35 miles to Sam's Club and fill 2 carts? What was I thinking when I had to call hubby at work to come get the last 1/2 cart worth of stuff that wouldnt fit in my car? What was I thinking when I spent nearly $650 in an hour and a half at ONE STORE?
Well, I suppose I was thinking that, not only do I hate leaving the house, but I also hate shopping and that if I got it all over with, I could avoid going again for a few months.
What was I thinking????
By the time I got home I was exhausted. I did NOT want to do anything with all that food. I just wanted to crawl in bed for a couple more days. Fat chance of that happening. Not with that much food and 2 months worth of food budget on the line. I did what HAD to be done and left the rest for the next day.
This is what I saw when I woke up Friday morning:
OMG! What did I do?!?!?!?
(That is 34 pounds of Chicken, 20 pounds of ground beef, 14 pounds of beef roast, 18 pounds of pork loin, 12 pounds of cheese and 3.5 pounds of steak in my fridge.)
Dont get me wrong, I have always been one to stock up and fill my freezer... but COME ON!
Needless to say, I spent Friday putting pantry stuff away, cleaning the kitchen and beginning to divide, cook, package and wrap foods for the freezer. This isnt just OAMC (Once A Month Cooking), this is Once a QUARTER Cooking! Holy crap!
Stick with me throughout the week while I share my freezer madness complete with photos, recipes and menu plans for the next 90 days.
Oh, and it's not like I ever answer the phone anyway... But I really dont think I will have time to answer it at all this week!
