Exams are marked, away days done, reports are filed….so now I can see the faintest glimpse of the summer holidays hovering on the horizon! 12-and-a-half working days to go, and one of the bitter-sweet-est seasons of the school year. As excited as I am for summer, I will miss my class too – they are such a bunch of sweeties and they have come on so much! I guess that’s the thing with teaching, a neverending season of change.
Right, on with the meal planning! A lazy week because I’m being pretty social.
Monday: I intend to have a chilled evening in front of the football, so it’s a no cook supper for me! Wholemeal tortillas with chicken, avocado, lettuce and tomatoes, with a splash of salsa and a sprinkling of goats cheese beckon.
Tuesday: Post-gig (Shona and I are off to see Striking Matches, an amazing band we caught at Country 2 Country earlier this year) I’ll tuck into some Greek salad. Perfect when the weather is hot!
Wednesday: I’m out for supper with Cynthia, my co-chair for New Member’s in the JLL this year.
Thursday: Out again at a blogging event, I think the food is ‘Vegas inspired’. Colour me intruiged!
Friday: Shona and I gig again, this time to see the living legend that is Dolly Parton. I forecast Byron burgers beforehand or Mexican food afterwards!
Saturday: One of the rarest occurences will feature. An empty diary day. I intend to work out, blog, work on JLL projects and end of term gifts, and then curl up in front of the TV for a moviefest replete with pita bread pizzas.
Sunday: I think a big batch of Mexican chicken would be perfect! Served with tortillas or rice and beans, it’ll be a filling and yummy conclusion to the week.
