Dinner: pasta with sausage and artichokes
MH put the recipe away and I don't remember the formal name. Just something he threw together on the stovetop.
I had figured I would likely work from home on Monday, due to emergency stuff the night before. In the end, I got home at a reasonable enough time Sunday night. Working any less in the office just gets too complicated. So I decided I had enough sleep to be able to go into the office.
It was nice working the Holiday. It felt like I got more ahead instead of more behind. Phew! Hadn't really anticipated that, but it was strangely quiet. It was well needed after the last few work weeks.
Hell froze over and I had the energy to get some chores done around the house after I got home. As an early bird, the flip side is that I am pretty useless after work. So it felt good to get some stuff done that needed to be done.
Oh yeah, and the weather was *gorgeous* today. 72F degrees at some point, I took a half hour walk in the middle of the day. I always walk, but it felt nice to get some so much sun, and did a slightly longer walk than usual.
In the evening, I was craving pancakes (the ones I recently made were so good). I figured my kids could use a second dinner anyway. They did not disappoint. The kids devoured their second dinner. I later saw MM(17) going back for cereal and ice cream. (& I am sure that is not all he ate, is just what I saw). He ran 8 miles. Which is more than he has ran in about 6 months, so I expect some major food spending in our near future. In full training mode, he will run 8 miles most days. That is when our grocery bill gets insane.
Dinner: Sausage & Kale Soup (Instant Pot)
Tried a new recipe that was an A+. It was pretty much Zuppa Toscana without the cream. I like it better without. I think everyone in my house did. It was also beans instead of potatoes, so probably quicker to throw together.
