Today marks the end of a very. long. week. for me.
And nothing beats coming home to a warm bowl of homemade Vegetarian Gypsy Soup (click for recipe) with a melty grilled cheese on the side. Can I just say how much leftovers saved me this past week? Prepping soups and such on the weekend or at a time when life is a little less busy, makes such a world of difference for the upcoming week. I’d hate to resort to cereal every night for dinner (not that I’m above having cereal for dinner occasionally, when life gets crazy 😉 ) and it’s a great way to get some veggies in without too much prep work.
Soups are super easy to freeze and reheat in single serving tupperware dishes too. This Gypsy soup is one of my personal faves!
And I actually had the time to slow. down. and eat like normal human being. 😉 Followed by a gloriously sunny walk to stretch out my legs after a long day of classes. It was–in a word–blissful.
Can’t wait to unwind tonight with a bubble bath, my journal and a few magazines that I have yet to look through. Tomorrow I promise to return to a level of normalcy. I think a good night sleep will do the trick. 😀
Tomorrow afternoon, I have a phone-meeting with the internship director to figure out where I’ll be spending my three rotations for the upcoming internship in August. There will be a separate rotation site for clinical, food service and community work. So excited to see where I end up!
Question: Do you ever pre-plan meals on the weekend to make life easier during the week? Any tips on getting a healthy meal together in a flash? I love making meals and snacks on the weekend when I know that there’s an especially busy week coming up. I used to also make batches of granola bars as a quick grab-and-go snack for the school week. 😀
