Once a week I dedicate a few hours of prep work. This means I get the food chopped, baked, boiled etc. for the upcoming meals. Getting a jump start on my meals for the week is a huge help. I make:
brown rice, barley or beans
chop up onions, carrots, and celery. It is messy!
We still have snow in our yard and the air is still chilly, but, I am getting the itch to start spring cleaning projects. I also need constant reminders to stay and be motivated.
