Make Ahead Diva

I am so prepped for the week!


4 days of Pumpkin Oatmeal and A Vegetable Soup for tomorrow's lunch
Both soup portions are for tomorrow- Mom is visiting me at work!

I don't have to worry about many lunches this week. On Tuesday my team is having a holiday lunch, and Wednesday my Dad is coming to visit and we'll go to a place nearby for sushi.
I love eating my own prepared lunch, but a break from having to think about it will be refreshing.

Not much 'cooking' here lately- I've been throwing meals together quickly with whatever we have on hand (ie no recipes). We've had a few repeats lately- Miso Soup, Peanut Noodles for NH, Mideastern Chickpea Soup, and lots and lots of Spaghetti Squash for me. It's really cold out and we are gravitating towards comforting favorites.

Precooking lots of oatmeal is a new thing, but I really like it. It saves me time during the week and pumpkin oatmeal gets real custardy when reheated. I also get to use this precious pot.



A gift from Mom before our wedding, this cheerful little pot lives on my stove. It's from NapaStyle and I love it. A bit of an odd in-between size, it's great for side dishes or several servings of oats. The heavy bottom works great, allowing the oats to cook a long time without burning.
