Phew....I'm tired....Here's the Weekly Menu.

You don't realize exactly how lazy and lackadaisical your life is until suddenly it changes.  At least I don't.  Lent started while we were on vacation.  Lent means our Church hosts a Fish Fry each Friday night before Easter, excluding Good Friday.

This means every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday is spent prepping, cooking, serving and cleaning for 300-400 people.  We offer Baked Cod, Fried Cod, Baked Potatoes, French Fries, Mac and Cheese, Fish Chowder, Cole Slaw, Green Beans, Corn, Rolls and Desserts.  All you can eat for $11.  This year we are also offering beer and wine for sale.  It is a huge undertaking but we have a great group of volunteers and we always have a lot of laughs.

It is during these times that I have to really go back to cooking as I did when I was working full time.  More casseroles, slow cooker and instant pot meals that can be made ahead of time or thrown together quickly upon our return home.

So the Weekly Menu becomes even more important.  How do you manage meals during busy times?
