five of my girlfriends go together to prepare meals for me...
for me... it seriously doesn't get better than this. BEST girlfriends evVAAAAH.
Meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking- not my forte. In fact I'm the woman that looks lost inside the grocery store. I never understood why I couldn't just walk in, see a display of meat or fish... with a recipe card and all the ingredients a girl needs to whip that supper together. Shouldn't there be 'the best' loaf of fresh bread, nestled next to the perfect asparagus along side the already toasted almonds to sprinkle over the top. C'MON make it easy for a girl like me to cook up a good meal.
oh... excuse me, I was a bit in my own world there for bit ;). Who needs the grocery store when you've got girlfriends that know how to whip up 8 meals [that SMELLED so could I could taste them when I walked up to the front door] in a matter of hours?!
Last week I promised I'd fill in the blanks. [that promise here] This WAS definitely one of the whirlwind highlights of that day.
Brenda, Angela, Sheri, Deb, and Amy hooked me up... My freezer is full of healthy meals, my heart is full of joy, my shoulders are not tight + stressed. I loved watching them twirl around the kitchen. I'm thankful they know how. [yes, i watched... my hair was a bit of a deal breaker... who the hell wants to see a piece of their own hair in a lovely meal. 'oh hello there, i don't remember your name, but i recall you LIVED on my head less than 3 weeks ago".
So instead of being a sous-chef... I plopped down on Brenda's family room floor + organized all my medical paperwork. It needed to be done .
I wonder if the clerks at the grocery store miss their favorite 'deer-lost-in-the-headlight suburban mama'?
ps. SO many WONDERFUL neighbors + friends have been bringing us meals. It's so overwhelming for me, because truly this is my area of weakness. A great resource to organize all the meals + help is www.Lotsahelpinghands.com
