A funny for you Monday...

So without fail, it seems like Mondays hit me in the face and before I know it, I haven't gotten around to meal planning yet.  Seriously, I'll go through the morning, and then the thought will hit me, "Oh yeah, I have to cook dinner. Great. What are we going to have tonight?"  And of course, we don't get home til 5:30 so it has to be something quick and easy, or already prepared.  Ugh, why don't I plan better?

Today, I went to the freezer thinking, "I'll pull out some meat and go from there."

But then I found a large freezer bag full of something.  Hmm, this looks like it could be a meal. We'll try this.

I put it in the sink to thaw, and seriously, still had no idea what it was (although I was thinking perhaps it was roast and potatoes and carrots).

Then Luke came home for lunch.  "What's that?" he said.

I chuckled, "Umm, not really sure.  But it's for dinner."

He laughed too, "Oh, freezer surprise!"

*Since then, after pushing my finger around on it, I noticed some beans.  Oh yeah, carnitas and pintos.  We'll have tacos!
**moral of the story: label your freezer bags

I've done this very thing, too! It's a bummer though when the taco meat turns out to be spicy sausage, or some such thing. And since I started my grocery list on Monday and finished on Tuesday, you're way ahead of me!
