Crazy mad love them. I make them for everything.
I’ve found that with Mommy brain, if it doesn’t get written down, it doesn’t get done. What do I have right now for lists?
-Put away dishes
-organize Mac’s bookshelf
-organize my bookshelf
-hang up wet fleece laundry
-put a load of rags on
-smoothie for lunch
-sweep living room
-make mashed potatoes
-make shepards pie
See how I put things like eat lunch on there? Yes it’s a no brainer, but I’ll also get going on something and forget to until later! Having it written down makes me do it sooner. I also add things during the day. Today is a really light list as I’m out for half of the day helping our friends, J+A with a couple farm chores.
To do in Town List
-Mail cheque to Jamie
-Bring blue Kiddie Pool to A.
-J+A’s @ 12.
-Foxglove (Farm and Garden Store) January King Cabbage, Perpetual Spinach and insoles for boots
-Empty wine bottles to Mom’s
-Grab diaper bucket and bottle liners from Moms
The last list I’m going to share with you? The one that makes the week easier? My loosely followed meal plan.
April 25- May 1 Meal plan
Dinner- French Toast w/ whipping cream and blackberry sauce
Thaw chili for tomorrow
Dinner- Sheperds Pie (Make extra mashed potatoes for Friday
Lunch- smoothie (Why all the smoothies? I made a batch of yogurt that’s a little botched because I don’t like the texture but works great in smoothies, must use up 4 quarts of it!)
Dinner- Out at ECEBC dinner.
Lunch- smoothie (also, I have tons of frozen fruit from last summer)
Dinner- Salmon with mashed potato pancakes
Lunch- Chicken Soup
Lunch- Chicken Soup
Dinner- Mom’s for Fire/Meat Roast.
I also have a list of things I need to make ahead and freeze for Cowboy to bring to school with him next week for dinners and snacks. It’s his last week! Yahoo!
Pizzax3 (use up fresh mozza, feta and spinach)
Clam chowder (bring some to Poppa and Stepdad) (None of the woman in my family like clam chowder, only Cowboy, Stepdad and my Mom’s Dad, Poppa!)
Chicken Soup (Chicken Carcass in freezer)
Egg Noodles (Want to try making a bunch and drying them)
At the beginning of the week I leave a few blank, because things come up, like just today my Mom brought up the fire/meat roast, so I just penciled it in. I also managed to get the pizzas made last night, so we’ll have one on Saturday for dinner.
So spill…do you make lists? What’s on your lists? Do you meal plan? I do it more because all of our meat is in the freezer that I need to plan ahead to what we’re eating. When I don’t manage to do that and I realize that it’s pretty much dinner time? That’s what we have tons of venison sausage for! Turn on the oven, unwrap sausages, pry them apart with a butter knife and they’re done in 35-40 minutes. Dinner! Well, plus veg and starch/carb.
