Yum

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!

Dinner

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 ate the 5th serving 🙂

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!

Question of the Evening:

  • Do you prepare all of your food at the beginning of the week, or do you prepare things as you go???

  1. 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!
