First things first: I hope you all had a good Canada Day. Apparently they don't celebrate Canada Day in Ireland and I almost forgot about it entirely. Luckily, my three year old nephew reminded me. Up the Canuck!
Ok so the advice:
On Sunday afternoon, make a big pot of chili or something that you can heat and eat on Monday. This saves you having to cook when you come in after work and then you aren't tempted to get take-out. If you get sick of eating it, you can freeze some and have a ready-made emergency meal.
(This might seem like a pain, but really, Sundays are kinda boring anyway and the idea is to make something that you can throw in a pot and let it cook itself).
Yesterday, I made Irish stew, curry, AND scones so I am SET.
