wisdom comes with age
okay so maybe Granny didn’t pour herself a tall, cool Cosmo and put Ben Harper on the Bose just before she began chopping the garlic. pulling out every pot and pan she owned, and filling the sink with dirty dishes.
and there was a reason that she saved the old Frigidare from the trash pile and said it should go to the garage for extra storage at holiday time.
and believe me…she knew what she was doing when she said she needed no help in the kitchen the few days prior to the holidays.
i’ve got the whole clan coming here for 4-5 days. i love to feed them, but i love to relax with them too.
i’ve never been much for too much pre-planning, i mean REAL pre-planning and pre-prep before the “big day”. this year i thought i’d give it a try. thought i try something a bit more relaxing.
i did the lists, menus, shopping…this past weekend. i finished my shopping, pulled into my driveway and unloaded half my stuff and then drove to my neighbor’s, feed their cats, and fish, watered some plants, and took in the mail (they’re in Florida) and filled their refrig too!
i did some pre-prep for food this evening. so relaxing. just me, myself and the food.
so far, so good. i”ll let you know how it works out. could be a plan for me to keep!!!!
