Cook's Day Off

I just had a little Whoo! Hoo! moment. I was thinking through tomorrow so I could pull things from the freezer for the meals when it occurred to me. I won't be doing any cooking on Friday!

Meghan just loves to make our Friday breakfasts which consists of toast or bagels or English muffins. She really loves to do this, and I'm often awakened by her sounds of slicing, oven beeping and buttering (she's so much more of an early bird than I). If only I could inspire her to make our other breakfasts. Toast everyday, maybe?

Lunch will be out using our Pizza Hut Book-It coupons. Pretty cool that the 10 of us can enjoy their lunch buffet for under $20!

For dinner, Emelie will be making a chicken dish from her 4-H manual. Best part about 4-H is eating all the Foods projects!

While I enjoy cooking for this crew, this little mini-vacation has me very excited. It's like a glimpse into what I might be able to enjoy regularly in the years to come.



  1. Your girls are going to be great cooks if they follow in your foot steps. How great for Meghan to serve her family that way and be excited about it! :)

  2. Let me join the celebration...Woo hoooo!! Enjoy your mini-vacation friend. You truly deserve it. :0)

  3. I like the new background on your blog, by the way. :) See you soon, friend.
