Sunday Teacher Routines!

Sunday is my prep day for the week!  It's a full marathon of cooking, cleaning, laundry, & mental preparation.  Once Monday begins, my body is so physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted that anything extra pretty much takes a back seat to ...well...survival.  I make sure I have an "easily-assembled" food supply on hand for the week. 

Now, I'll be honest--even though I'm a vegan, I do practice/suffer from the "see food" diet--I see food and I eat it. This especially happens when I come home at 4 or 5 pm (or 6 or 7 these days) and I'm STARVING.  (Hey, I eat breakfast at 5 and lunch at 11:30...I recognize I operate on a senior citizen's meal schedule, but don't be hatin'!)
C'est moi!  (Apres 4 pm)
 Someone very close to me once compared me to a raccoon raiding the cupboards. Cute, eh? 

So today I made some soup, veggie burgers, a taco salad, and a fruit salad.  I brewed a pot of decaf coffee to take me through the week.  (This is progress--I used to drink a full pot of regular coffee EVERY DAY!) I went to school to finalize some plans and packed up my lunch for tomorrow too. (See my favorite container below!)  I feel like a real life adult!  It feels good to have a plan of action for the week.  The past few weeks have been more "fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-esque."
My FAVORITE salad container (and other counter goodies)!  

What's your Sunday routine like?
