This past week I had the closing shift three times, and for the second time in two weeks, back to back nights. It may not be that awful if our dog, Daisy, slept past 4 a.m. My husband takes the 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. wake ups and I get up with her after 4 a.m. She's usually settles down after a trip outside, some water and her breakfast. Afterwards she proceeds to spend rest of the day napping.
On Thursday, I dragged myself to the gym to get the body and mind going. Then the nagging question, what's for supper? Back in March 2007, Wegmans published a recipe for Gingered Beef with Broccoli and Stir-Fry sauce. The active time is 20 minutes, so you gotta love that!
Fortunately, I over purchased snow peas a few weeks ago and had them blanched and in the freezer for future use. I also keep knobs of ginger and frozen broccoli on hand. I had to purchase a red bell pepper and stir fry beef at the food store, but forgot the mushrooms. At 1 p.m. I started preparing my supper so that I can eat something nutritious and my husband could reheat in the microwave. This coming week, I work only two nights, ugh!
