Teri did all the food shopping and that was a blessing in many ways. First off, she's young and a Tuff Mudder so she's strong. Secondly, she's got brains and energy and can figure out how to buy all the stuff we needed.
This time the ordeal was at our home and it was wonderful having Robert here to help us...copy the recipe instructions to be enclosed into each freezer back, cook up things and his speciality is always the clean up. He's amazing.
Here's a panoramic view. Teri had copied all the recipes and 'day-of-cooking' needs so we had quite the packet.
Nila had never done this type of prepping before so it was a lot of fun, plus we got to learn more about her life growing up in Indonesia.
A little bit of teasing and laughing and of course Robert had to give her some sayings to increase her understanding of English....for instance, "Not too much of the sauce" and "one for the road". As if any of us actually drink alcohol.
I packaged my lot up into smaller sections since there's just Robert and me so we have 42 meals if I've counted correctly. That means the other 2 ladies have 21. Not bad and for so little cost.
About midnight I remembered I had Maleleuca Pain-a-trait in my nightstand and forced myself to lean over and get some lathered on my legs and THEN I was able to sleep. Incredible.
Our house still smells like what we prepared yesterday and my hands/skin smell like the infused oils and rubs. Next time we do this, and we WILL be doing it again, I think I will wear gloves.
But I am so grateful for this adventure.
