I return to paid employment this week – eeek. It has been over 4 years since I left the house, went to a job, and was paid for it, and I am a bit nervous on how I am going to cope. I was really enjoying the freedom that came with having 2 1/2 days per week that the kids were at school, all to myself to get everything done. But what I would consider my dream job came up, I managed to get it, and they are allowing me to work flexible hours, so what more could I ask for?
So I have literally been stuck in the kitchen the last couple of days to fill up my freezer so that on those first few days when I am bound to be tired, all I need to do is pull something out, chuck it in the microwave and dinner is sorted. Plus I have been busy making a few meals for my parents when they return from the big smoke, hopefully this week.
I found these containers in IGA, and they are just great. They are Black & Gold brand and just perfect for a meal for one. I usually use the foil ones as they are perfect for Brad to take away with him as they fit nicely in his cooker.
My list of meals I have made to freeze are:
Chicken & Vegie Soup
Tomato Macaroni Cheese
Mince mix for spag bog
2 batches of muffins (blueberry & banana)
Beef & Red Wine Casserole
Still to finish off this arvo:
Chicken & Spinach lasagne
And then there is the lunches for tomorrow that need to be made (including mine) and uniforms to get ready, and more importantly look at my cupboard and think what am I going to wear, I don’t have work clothes anymore!
