Hey.... so I've decided that now it's summer, I want to make a bunch of meals that I can freeze for lunches and dinners (I plan on filling up our new deep freezer completely with them!) so that we can have healthy(ier) food to eat for work, AND not spend ten bucks every day on meals.  The problem is... I can only think of so many things because many of the things I regularly make will not freeze well - like potatoes, so I'm going to try the instant ones instead, and even a few of the things on the list I'm going to have to test out to see how they do (quite a few of them I have done before because a couple years ago for xmas - while my dad was still a bachelor and didn't eat well - I made him a huge box full of frozen meals so he would eat better and more regularly).  I plan on making everything homemade, rather than buying premade items.  I'm also going to try to do it the store-bought frozen dinner way for a lot of things (like separating sauces and noodles until you nuke it so they don't get all mushy)

IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS, PLEASE POST THEM!  I would really appreciate the help and I would like a wide variety of meals to choose from when I start making the meals.


Here's my list so far... )

We will eat most anything and are not picky at all.  If you have any ideas, that would be awesome!

Wow... I'm posting two entries in one week.  Crazy!

So, I wrote a new one shot last week, along with starting to type up my crazy arse long story that I've been working on since November 2007.  I started writing it by hand, but it's just under 100 pages (in my journal) and honestly... it is too damn hard to find anything in it when I need it because I've written so much.  It's nowhere near finished either!  I'm hoping once I get it all typed, I will have more energy to work on it because it won't be so hard to do, along with having more time this summer because I won't constantly be writing for school (though I DO need to keep working on my book!).

Other fun news... I might be going to China in the fall of 2010 to help teach English.  I actually REALLY want to go, but I am also undecided because Josh and I are going to start planning the wedding this coming fall  (and hope to be married by summer of 2010), and I am honestly not sure if I can leave him and the animals for 6 months.  It will be very hard, especially since we have lived together for almost 5 years now.  So I will just have to see, and I have a year before I have to make a final decision.

AND... today I made sheperd's pie!  It's in the oven right now, and I'm super excited to see how it will turn out!  It is the first time I've ever made it and it smells great because I'm starving.

That's all for now....
