Now that our weekdays have gotten much busier, I’ve gone back to my “Sunday prep day” ways just a bit.
Made nut butter
Made a giant pot of soup
Alliebars are in stock!
We should be all set for a busy week ahead! I always tell busy people the key to mid-week healthy eating is just a wee bit of planning and chopping on Sundays. You can make a whole pot of stovetop oats to microwave during the week, chop all your veggies for salads, and even make lunches for the upcoming 5 days! I used to do it all when I had my stints of 8am-9pm straight through.
While soup simmered, beets roasted. This time I used regular beets – they are not NEARLY as good as the goldens, and they were much harder to peel!
But even without gloves I was happy to see my Shaklee dish soap got the pink right out! I couldn’t believe it since my hands were magenta just minutes prior
Tonight’s dinner was Frontier Soup sample we brought home from Great Harvest. We’ll be selling these in our store! It was the Montana High Plains Wheat Berry Chili –
Luckily I’m a pro at wheatberries already I simmered them away
And then you add the spice pack
And a 28 ounce can of tomatoes and some broth. The recipe called for ground turkey, but I used a can of kidney beans instead. No reason other than:
Organic turkey = $10
Beans = $1
Matt was at the bakery all afternoon sanding our kneading table, which was quite dirty. See photos at GHCville Facebook!
He said he would be home around 6:30, which came and went. I was getting pretty hungry and munched on tortilla chips while I waited and waited. Finally at 7 I texted him that I was going to eat! The boy who cried wolf did not have me convinced that he was coming home on time!
But sure enough, he arrived just 10 minutes later.
Delicious chili topped with yogurt + cheese + tortilla chips!
Gah I could eat blue corn chips till the cows come home! I had 2-3x the serving here.
Look at these BEAUTIFUL hand-made sign holders that blog reader Seana made for me!! Remember this post about being frustrated about signs? Seana saw these on Etsy and decided to put herself to the crafting test. She even threw in cards + laminate paper! They turned out SO cute and will be perfect for our sweets labeling! Thank you Seana!
Do you know what one of my favorite desserts is? Making overnight oats and taking a bite before I put them in the fridge for breakfast! The sweet banana milk is the perfect one-bite dessert : )
Now you know what’s for breakfast!
