I’ve learned that planning and forethought make for a successful week in the classroom. (usually) I’ve never really applied this to home. I tend to plan dinner as I pull into the garage. Today as I make our lunch I’m making a pot of soup to provide me with several lunches and a dinner. My husband will be out of town for 3 days and I tend to make poor choices when it’s just me.
That was my plan. Efficiency. Planning ahead.
Today as I made lunch I was using all 5 burners on our stove. Lunch was cooking away, and I was also making soup. As I put the finishing touches on our meal I started to combine the ingredients for the soup. The barley was cooked, and ready to drain. Once it was in the soup pot it could simmer for a few hours. I plan to have an easy week!
Today as I made lunch I severely burned my hand. I was using all the burners on my stove and the handle of small pan I was using was too close to another burner. I’m wearing a large bandage and also have a singed ring finger. As I spend the week alone there will be many tasks I will need to delay. One handed isn’t efficient. I plan to order pizza and feel sorry for myself.
