Couldn't sleep, made cheese

March 6th, 2017 at 03:37 am

Sunday morning I was awake at 3:45 am and could not get back to sleep. I gave up and rolled with it. What I accomplished before 9:45 am:

-finished reading a book I started forever ago
-boiled eggs for deviled eggs
-switched up some decor in the living room/dining room with some Easter touches
-took out all the recycling
-took a 50 minute step class at the gym
-made fresh cheese!

I'm most proud of making the paneer, Indian cheese. It was quite simple, if messy. I accidentally bought one gallon of milk too many. I wasn't keen on the idea of freezing it, don't have the room anyway.Instead of making something delicious but not so good for me (rice pudding...), I looked up other recipes that required a lot of milk. The kids didn't like it plain, but they like paneer in Indian dishes so I will grab a curry or other sauce at the international market. If I don't eat it all by then. Good old google!

The rest of the day was spent with the girls. I was in zombie mode by 4pm and took a 30 minute nap to get through til bedtime.

We ate out one time this weekend, well, it was take-out. That gave us lunch the next day, plus we have one more lunch sized portion left. In all about $32.

Ready for the week, go Monday Smile

    I was up at 3:30am yesterday too. I took my husband to the airport, only to come home and have him call me at 5am to come back to pick him up since he cancelled flight was rebooked for 230pm. I was off most of the day, too.

    Making cheese sounds fun, I had no idea it could be easy!

    I think it's the lengthening days that causing our clocks to get out of whack.

    I sometimes get up too early but usually just spend time on the computer or TV...not a good habit! I'm glad you were so productive.

    Ok, PatientSaver mentioned the lengthening days, that is starting to make sense, thought I was going crazy!
