    We do find that cooking on top of the stove heats up our small kitchen, but the crockpot might be a good way to go.

    I'm a big proponent of prepping, but have not always been diligent about it. Since my life is changing next week (retiring) I hope to reinstate it!
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    No, no celebrations. My staff bought me lunch today and DH took me out for steak last night.

    No big plans yet besides getting a haircut on Tuesday. DH & I are going on a road trip in September. Really looking forward to that knowing that we have no set date when we have to be back.

    I feel like I'm stepping from a ledge. I have worked since I was 15 years old. I am positive I will never be bored; I have a lot of ideas and opportunities to volunteer, etc.. I just think I need to sit and figure out whether having a routine would benefit me. I think if I don't come up with some kind of plan I might become too complacent. My greatest worry is becoming my mom, who became very sedentary and reclusive.

    When I “retire“ (by which I mean ‘quit’ since I have no retirement from my job) I will probably become reclusive. Because I mostly don’t like adults and we live in a society where I could get arrested for trying to socialize with children.

    Today I made two breakfasts worth of rice pudding and two lunches worth of egg salad and put one of each back in the fridge. I also dried a dehydrator full of kale chips for snacking, and bought a case of peaches to can. Dinner was a plate full of fresh corn on the cob, which might be a sign that I’m not cut out for batch meal planning.

    Congrats, Kay. And enjoy your trip!! I can't imagine have no deadline to return from travels - enjoy!

    Dinner tonight is just some tomato and basil soup... from a can. LOL. (Actually isn't too bad! LOL)

    Today I made two large batches of soup which is about 10 servings. It all goes into our freezer.


    DH bought a dozen ears of corn at a local farm but the corn was just awful. That’s pretty unusual to have fresh picked homegrown corn be this bad. So I sliced it up and made some corn soups.

    Nice you were able to turn it around and use it!

    Thanks everyone. The soup turned out soooo good! I have two small dinner portions in the freezer and some "leftover" in the fridge. It turned out more like a stew than soup, but either way was well worth it.

    I'm thinking tonight will be easy pork roll and cheese sandwiches with salad.
