Why hello there gorgeous, hope your day is going good.
I woke up this morning with so much energy ; yes the spoons were flowing today ; but by 6:00 pm I was totally ready to lay down. My spoons ran for the hills. This left me with a dilemma, feeding my family. I wanted so bad to just say “Let’s have sandwiches for dinner tonight” but I couldn’t bring myself to subject my family to a packed lunch for dinner, so I put on my big girl pants and pushed through the exhaustion.
I made streak and pasta for dinner and my secret weapon was the fact that the steaks were thin so they cooked fast and I used a boxed pasta that I hadn’t tried before.
This little gem not only makes it’s on sauce, it cooks in 10 minutes!!!
From start to finish dinner took me 10 minutes total we had a full meal … steak, salad, and pasta and it was tasty!!
I was so exhausted that I forgot to take a plated picture but believe me when I say it was tasty.
We, as spoonies, often give ourselves too high of an expectation when it comes to taking care of our families that we forget that taking short cuts is in fact acceptable.
My family loved dinner tonight and I barely had much to do. I guess what I mean to say is don’t forget that you can take the easy way around when handling responsibilities. Our illnesses take so much from us, don’t let them take everything from us. It is 100% acceptable to cut corners when you spoon supply is running low!
Baby steps …. that’s the key.
Well ta ta for now dolls. Remember to save a spoon or two for a bit of lipstick.
