This weekend I got out four pounds of hamburger meat to thaw. “What are you doing with all the hamburger meat?” was the question I was asked several times during the morning as different family members went into the kitchen and saw the meat thawing. My answer? “I really have no idea.”
You’ve got to love it that my plans are always so clearly laid out and organized. ;)
What can I say? All I knew was that I had a few hours between soccer games to get some cooking done, and that our supply of convenience foods in the freezer was getting low. Therefore, I grabbed out the meat to thaw so that I could make something with it when I actually had time.
As I stood watching my boys play a soccer game in the late morning,
I watched and cheered and memorized every move my children made so that I could talk through the game in detail with them later I mentally made a plan for the cooking I would do in the three hours I had at home before the next game. Going by what sounded good, what I had in my pantry, and what would work best to get me ahead for this week – I ended up making two Lasagna Casseroles and two pans of Cheesy Salsa Enchiladas.
Don’t worry. I can multi-task. I really was watching and cheering while I thought about browning hamburger meat and making tortillas.
Here’s our menu for this week….just to prove that I don’t always get meat out of the freezer without a plan. :)
