And away we go

I’m on my way back to another school year, BoomR is on his way to Venice…where are you bound today?

I haven’t had a moment to reflect on this past summer, as is my wont on the first day of school (no kids till Wednesday, though). For now, the biggest issue is staying the course this year, in many ways. Lots of changes coming up for my colleagues and me. Nothin’ like jumping in head first.

The crazy weekend was good. Did I mention it was crazy? Haven’t stopped since Friday morning. My freezer got the full Monty, though. Between Saturday night and Sunday night, I managed to prepare and pack away the following dinners, at least twice each, sometimes more:

  • salmon filets
  • salmon cakes
  • salmon for salads
  • Chicken Romano
  • Italian meatballs
  • Boston cod filets

It should last us over two weeks. If not, well, back into the kitchen I go. I will perfect this, I swear.

And now, time for war paint and hitting the road. Have a good week, fiends!

Hopefully, this will be a good year, sweetie. It will definitely be a busy one for you! You keep to that cooking schedule and you’ll have it down pat! Lots of good meals you listed. You’re an awesome cook, so I bet they will be satisfying for you and Thriller, too.

Thanks again for today!!! Love you!

LOVING your menu! We’ll have to have a long e-chat when I get back. I want to pick your brain more about your new meal regiment, including reducing the wheat products/doing the gluten-free thing. I have been having a heck of a time with my right hip – judging by what’s happening to me, it may be very closely aligned to what you were experiencing a while back. I recall you mentioning that you were experiencing a LOT less discomfort and greater mobility since you’ve been on your current eating regiment. When I get back, we must DISH (in more… Read more »

Menu looks good and healthy. So glad that you’re staying with it even with the hectic pace of another school year beginning. You asked where we were off to. I’m not off to any place, I’m just off. Hope you have a super duper school year, even with all of the uncertainties and changes.

Ok Rat Fink have the best of years this school year…you are the finkiest and I am sure your students are blessed because of that. Menu looked good unless you do not like salmon which I do not but it sounds like putting this all together was no problem for you. Where am I off too…anywhere i want to be, that’s how us pensioners roll. Actually in 5 weeks Liz and I are off to Ireland and Scotland for two weeks. This has been on the bucket list for some time and it was time to pull the trigger. Will… Read more »
