I spent the day batch cooking. I’ve now got 14 dinners, 10 lunches, and 12 breakfasts in the freezer. Hoping this gives me more time to enjoy the warm evenings after work.

When it came time for my dinner tonight I made a smoothie because I can’t even look at anymore food today. Also you should try these because they are delicious.
