Sunday in the Kitchen

Finally, a relatively quiet Sunday – plenty of time to get some things done!

I start out by saying that I missed having Sunday as my one skip day at the gym! Thursday, I had a fasting blood test in the morning and a meeting at night, so I made that my skip day. I love having Sunday as a skip day as it allows me an entire day at the house. But, it got me out to run an errand or two before my exercise.

So, here’s just a sampling of what I did today:

  1. Made a double batch of Broccoli Quinoa Pilaf (added beans, too): one batch for the week, the other for the freezer.
  2. Cut and prepared a fresh pineapple.
  3. Made homemade whole grain pizza dough: froze half, made mini pizzas from the other half. Six pizza lunches in the freezer.
  4. Froze four meal size and six snack size taco soups for “emergencies,” such as don’t wanna cook, too late to cook or no time to pack lunch mornings.
  5. Cooked a brown rice crust quiche for dinner and the rest of the week.
  6. Peeled, cubed and roasted sweet potatoes to add to the frozen veggie mixes I bought. (When eaten with sweet potatoes, nearly any vegetable is more palatable.)
  7. Prepared the steamed veggies
  8. Put all of the flattened cardboard boxes stacked in the kitchen in my car for drop-off recycling center.
  9. Packed paper grocery bags in the car for Tuesday co-op pick up.
  10. Washed two loads of dishes so I can start the week with an empty sink and dishwasher! (Vital to my sanity!)

And these weren’t in the kitchen, but things that needed to be done:

  1. Washed a couple loads of clothes
  2. Cleaned a few things off of the porch. Our screened back porch is a little cluttered, and I want to clear it to use as a little getaway for my morning coffee.
  3. Weeded the rose garden and jotted a list for our fab yard man to tackle.
  4. Cleaned out the litter box (ugh!)
  5. Worked out.
  6. Changed my bed clothes.
  7. Fueled and washed the car.

I haven’t had this productive a Sunday in months, and it feels awesome! Ready for the week and upcoming long weekend!
