Being Productive on Sunday

I started out my Sunday on a ridiculously productive note. I was up at 7:30 after already handling the dogs, getting dressed, and headed to the grocery store. I had done all of my meal planning during the week last week, so I already knew what we would be having for all of our meals this week (including planned nights out with friends since it is so close to Christmas). Planning my meals makes me very efficient when I go to the grocery store.

So I had my grocery list all set up along with what we were going to eat for the week so I felt really good about it. I was only there for a few minutes this time. I was able to check everything off the list. I had coupons for several things, which definitely made me feel pretty good about my shopping, and I spent right within what I had hoped to spend for the week.

On the way home I stopped at Starbucks to get a coffee for both J and I, and then came home and cooked brunch. It was definitely NOT a healthy brunch, but it was pretty delicious. I took Pillsbury crescent rolls, sausage, scrambled eggs and cheese and made a stuffed bread. It was so yummy.

After brunch, we went for a walk with our dogs. We took Teek and Zeus for around 1.7 miles (I had my "map my run" app open so I could track it). I think they really enjoyed themselves. I did as well. I am not sure that J had tons of fun, but I am still glad that he came with us.

Right now I am in the middle of doing a little bit of cooking for the week. I just finished up a butternut squash casserole.
Onions, butternut squash, breadcrumbs, sage, bleu cheese...  This is likely going to be really delicious. At least, I hope so. I found the recipe randomly online and decided that since the squash is in season right now, it might be a good side dish to make. I cannot remember how many it is supposed to serve (since that will help me determine when I can bring it to work for lunch as well), but I can just look it up again. 6. It is supposed to serve 6. That gives me 4 lunches, plus the one dinner that I have it planned for.

Right now, I have a large bone-in chicken breast roasting in the oven. It is HUGE and should last me MANY lunches, plus the dinner I have it planned for. J and I had some coupons for the chicken, so we bought it with plans of using it for this chicken enchilada casserole as well as shredding up the rest for whatever else we might need it for.

Were you productive today?
