The best laid plans...

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?
