Today is going to be a Great day!

I woke at 4 this morning thinking ah, I get to sleep in today........ WAIT, no I don't!  The window guys would be here bright and early putting in new windows (YEAH!!!), playschool for the boys, taking the teen to a resale shop locally (so much easier to shop without 2 toddlers playing hide and seek in the clothes!), pick up boys from playschool, NAPTIME (aka laundry time), Letterboxing with a homeschool group, teen off to babysit, pick teen up from babysitting, Oh yeah - Feed the Family!!!
So for my own sanity, I HAVE to plan out our weekly menu or literally with a day like today, we would live off sandwiches or take out.  Neither of which is appealing all the time.  Don't get me wrong, I like take out but not everyday and not at the cost for a family of 5 eaters.
When I looked at tonight's dinner plans, I just breathed a sigh of relief.  You know why?  Because it is Fajita night!  Do you know how easy this meal is going to be???  Especially when the steak is frozen from a previous meal.  Believe it or not, but we had leftover steak one night.  Like a WHOLE steak (actually 2).  The boys must not have been super duper carnivores that night.  So instead of leaving them in the fridge thinking we would eat them over the next meal or two, I wrapped them up and froze them with this meal in mind!  So in 20 minutes or less tonight, we will have steak fajitas with peppers and onions, taco rice, and black beans on the table.  Super easy!  I'll cook the rice this afternoon, adding the onions and seasoning (a few dashes of dried taco mix) right before dinner.  Chop some lettuce, tomato, cut into an avocado.  See easy!
Now to enjoy the day!
