Is anyone watching the America's Cup yacht race? Held in San Francisco we are hoping Team New Zealand can win this cup again and bring it to Auckland. The country is coming to a standstill when the races are held, and they are amazingly good TV viewing. Amazing the difference from last time we won the cup, with onboard cameras, great computer graphics, shorter races & man do those yachts just sizzle along.
Closest I could find to a yacht emoticon, LoL.
Today I spent the morning doing food prep for the week. I am finding this really helpful. I am not a good food tracker and I don't know why but I do not plan my menus, I just buy the ingredients I like the look of, and we make meals from there.
Though I don't have a menu plan for the week, I do chop up some appropriate vegetables and put them in sealed containers (cucumber, cabbage, broccoli & coleslaw this week), hardboil eggs, stew fruit (rhubarb; pears & ginger), make soup (Italian tomato & bean), breakfast (crockpot steel cut oats & apple), desserts (berry jelly; chia pudding) whip cream & make dressings & yoghurt. So in addition to salad greens, we have coleslaw to grab & go for work lunches, and everything is ready for quick dinner prep. Anything not used at the end of the week goes into the soup pot or the freezer.
I'm surprised how long this takes me, a good couple of hours in the morning, quick cleanup then hustle along for my swim & pick up any groceries I notice we need...
What are you going to be eating this week?
