So today was long, which I was expecting, but I am still smiling!
I got all of that awful grading done, four courses is just too much! I also managed to make a nice roast chicken dinner, no dessert (kids didn't behave well enough anyway), ran a few errands to finish Christmas gifts for the girls, cleaned up the house a bit and then my OCD REALLY took over.
I emptied all THREE freezers-and they were full, the big upright, and the two small fridge top freezer, organized it all and then created a log of what was where. I know geeky geeky. Even worse, I finally broke down and bought a crockpot, I am a pretty hands on cook, but even I have had to cave to the idea that some days, I need some help. I plan to use it mostly on Fridays when I am at class, I can set it up before I leave, and Ryan can make the sides so we can have dinner when I get home. Plus, I do like the idea of slow cooked soup. Soup is my favorite fall/winter food, so I am anxious to try some new recipes. Oh, and it uses less energy than the oven, so it is green :)
