When I feel stressed I clean the house. Clutter makes me anxious. I organize and purge and wash and vacuum whenever life goes topsy-turvy. An orderly home helps me feel in control.
I guess I feel a bit anxious about the upcoming week. Instead of writing my menu plan I've spent the past hour re-organizing the kitchen pantry. (Seeing all those neat and tidy stacks of canned goods brings me great pleasure.)
Working through mindless tasks is actually very therapeutic, though. As I tidied my pantry, I thought about buying groceries and mentally planned our meals for the next week. I now have a fairly clear picture of my menu plan!
Here's my proposed menu for the upcoming week:
Monday: No cooking! (Supper with my parents)
Tuesday: Holiday tortellini soup, grapes, multigrain bread
Thursday: Beef taco skillet, corn, sliced avocado
Friday: Veggie frittata, fruit salad, whole wheat toast
Sunday: No cooking! (Supper with Ben's parents)
