Day 270.

Sunday, September 27, 2009.

Today I got to make some food for my sister and her family to enjoy later when they don't have any help. I put three pans of lasagna and three containers of chili in the freezer, and tomorrow I plan to make two pans of enchiladas for the freezer, put some pork in the crockpot and stuff some zucchini for their dinner tomorrow night after I'm gone.

I am grateful to be helpful.

I do love to cook, and so I admit, it was fun to make all these dishes in someone else's kitchen while no children interrupted me to need snacks, drinks, playmates, or help with potty breaks. But most importantly, it felt really good to do something I knew would be useful for my sister's family after I was gone. I liked the idea of her dreading dinner and knowing she could just go to their freezer and pull out something to easily bake. It's so easy to be helpful when you are "single!"

  2. dinner was so yummy when we got back from the airport. the only thing missing was being able to share it with you.

    and last night we ate one of the pans of lasagna. thank you, thank you, thank you! other than the fact that i didn't put it in the oven early enough, it was great!
