Zach got off work early! This never happens and it was great that it happened on a snow day (OK, it was because of the snow that he got off early, but still!)
He even got to eat dinner with Keaton & me, which only happens on the weekends, so that was great too (good thing I planned to make a meal and not just re-heat leftovers!) 🙂
Also, I’m coordinating a freezer meal swap with some friends from church (and a couple others outside of our church!) and I’m so excited! Basically, we eat make a meal in bulk, freeze it, then swap it. There’s 6 families in my group, so I made 6 (and then some extras!) batches of manicotti and stuck it in the freezer. On Saturday, I’ll leave one for us, pull out 5, hand them out at the swap and then, put 5 other meals back in the freezer. It’ll be great to just pull a meal out and throw it in the oven – and that’s all I have to do for dinner. I’m not sure what the other ladies are cooking, except for one. She’s made talapia. I’m excited. We don’t eat fish (well, I like flounder and orange ruffy, and the appetizer shrimp at Japanese steakhouses!) but I’ve heard that talapia is very yummy!
