When I'm Not Cooking

This past weekend I got a lot done.  But that didn't include cooking.  I did a serious deep clean of the kids' room and rearranged the furniture.  Mike and I filled cracks in the house with foam insulation.  We repaired the back of the fridge (don't ask).  We covered all the windows in plastic film to cut down on drafts.  I ordered and picked up our photo holiday cards and a few gifts.

Luckily we had Thanksgiving leftovers so I didn't starve, because I didn't cook at all.

My leftover potatoes and spinach casserole became potato cakes for Saturday morning breakfast and I ate stuffing/dressing for at least 3 more meals.

 Last night I was exhausted and couldn't eat stuffing again.  So I opted for the fruit and nut plate.  Fresh fruit was a nice change!

What a great idea! I will have to try that next time we have mashed potatoes. We didn't cook this weekend either. I love leftovers.
