After Samhain, I will be eating a meatless diet until Yule. I did the same thing last year. As some of you may remember, I posted menus for what I had planned to cook during those days. Some things I made, and some things I did not.
As always, I make grand plans to do things, and then life gets in the way. I expect the very same thing to happen this year. Actually, I expect it to be worse. I am working longer hours, live farther away from work, and my boyfriend's work schedule is 4 pm - 1 am. We have one car, so I have to go pick him up. He isn't home for dinner, of course, and I truly hate cooking a meal just for myself. It's a pain in the ass when I get home at 6. I manage to destroy the kitchen, and then I am too tired to clean it up before I nap. I nap for a few hours, get up, drive the 25 miles to the boyfriend's place of employment, and get back home around 1:30 or 1:45. Ugh. Just, ugh.
Still, I plan to make a few meals here and there, and I am planning plenty of options. I will actually get around to posting some recipes, too, I hope.
I'm tired. I need a break already.
My Samhain menu is planned and huge. We'll see what happens. I'll be celebrating on the cross-quarter day, which I do believe is November 6. I will double check before then. That will give me some more time to get my shit together. I may just shoot for the weekend between Nov. 6 and Oct. 31. I think that will be my best bet.
I love my new job and my new place of employment. It is a bazillion times better than that awful place where we were trapped before moving back home. Thank gods I'm back in my home state!
So, what are you doing this year?
