The focus: Get some quick breakfasts into the freezer, and a lunch salad prepped in bulk. Maybe a little something extra for the freezer.
- Balsamic lentil salad (made with kale to hold up to vinaigrette for a few days)
- Homemade Egg McMuffins
- Mini Quiches
- Shredded chicken (for dumping on salads, quick lunches/dinners).
We did well! Mr. Moon dragged the microwave out of the kitchen for a little more counterspace, which will soon be available permanently when we build our microwave cart. After I did most of the paper-planning, we put him on knife duty, Friend on assembly duty, and I mostly directed & went to an appointment. We weren't super diligent, we added some stuff at the last minute, but we got everything done in 6 hours--including eating breakfast, lunch, and testing some cocktails.
All in all I'm expecting a few more of these joint food prep days in our future, and I'm pleased with how it went. I just wish it didn't involve deconstructing and re-arranging our kitchen just to get some more counter space, and completely shutting off the dining room.
