Jump Start Monday

I’m not a fan of Mondays. Not at all. I get the Sunday blues around 3pm because I dread Monday. It’s back to the crazy juggling act in hopes that I don’t drop the ball somewhere. (Mental note: Friendship snack for Deacon’s school on Friday) Sunday evenings were bearable for a while when I was able to look forward to True Blood, but now Sunday is just back to BLAH. Monday is the day you have to get back into the groove. Work is always insane on Monday. The amount of reports I have due is always doubled. I decided I was going to try to tackle Monday. Get a jump-start so it doesn’t wipe me out completely. So on my True Blood-less Sunday I decided to run to the store and buy a roast for the Crock Pot. I’m thrilled to know that when I walk through the door after an insane day of work, and drop-offs, and pick-ups, dinner will be pretty much done. I wonder why I don’t do this more often. It literally took eight minutes out of my morning.

Salt, pepper, and sear the roast.

3 garlic cloves and a yellow onion on the bottom, put the roast on top.

Add 1 cup water, 1 cup beef broth, 1/2 cup of Merlot, and Lipton Onion Soup mix.

Set it. Forget it. Voila

The house is going to smell like I have been slaving over the stove all day long. I can almost smell the decadent armoa emanating from the kitchen miles and miles away. Lets just hope the dog doesn’t get the lid open and help her self. She’s slick like that. So screw you Monday, I’m winning today!

  1. Haahaaa! I love that you just told Monday off….that is great and well deserved. Monday’s suck 🙁 I think I have adopted the policy that it is breakfast for dinner every Monday and we have fun with it. Last night we lit candles and made it extra fancy even though we were eating eggs, sausage and muffins. Sometimes we just have to give Monday a swift kick in the ass and shake things up. Well done! I feel like I can smell that pot roast…mmmm.
