This morning, I started out my day at a different hotel than I usually do. Because I am the manager of two properties, I try to spend a little bit of time at both.
When I called Brian at lunch, he specifically asked me if there was anything left at work. I had no idea what he was talking about. All I could think of was the envelope the night auditor left by the door for us to pick up…clearly not what Brian was talking about. When I said no, I think it threw Brian off a bit.
At around 2pm, I headed over to the other property to finish off my day, and there they were…
What a great fiance! He was confused because he didn’t know that I would be starting the day at the other property…oops! Luckily, I was splitting my time at both places 🙂 It was a great surprise to the middle of my day!
When I arrived home, I was very excited because dinner was waiting for me….in the crock pot. Last week, in my attempt to find a little extra time in my week, I decided to go with a suggestion from my mom. She suggested to make a giant meal in a crock pot, so that I have meals for the week or that I can freeze and reheat for a later date. What a simple and great idea!
Tonight’s meal was a take on The Savvy Vegetarian’s Barley Lentil Crockpot Soup. I added a bit of shrimp to mine for some extra protein. The meal was warm and a tad spicy from some chili powder I added. It will be great to eat again in the cooler months!
The recipe made exactly 5 servings…how perfect 😉
I must say, I am really loving the pre-prep ideas that I have been trying. It is really making my life easier. Getting used to having a set schedule is a little more challenging than I thought it would be. I know I will get used to it eventually, but right now these little prepare ahead of time tips are getting me through!
I hope you all had a great start to the week, too!

I’m all about prepping what I can before. A pot of soup of Chili is perfect to take for lunch. Check out the Indian-spiced vegetarian chili on Daily Garnish’s blot. So good!
Great idea! I will have to look at that 🙂
