The only thing that comes to mind during January is Downton Abbey.
We watched or let’s just say binge watched all 6 seasons under 3 weeks. I know..I know..it’s crazy. We did though. For a month I spoke in an accent new to me, and I felt quite posh. Now that fancy accent is fading away as fast as the memories of Downton Abbey are. I enjoyed it so much that I pretty much have withdrawal symtom now. I’m looking for another period drama. If you have suggestions, please do let me know.
I day dreamed about sitting in a library and asking “Would you like some tea?” Thinking in English just made me feel like a “lady.” Spent a portion of time even taking quizzes to find what character we were..;).
Ah… the way the royalty lived… It’s all too nice… Still though, I would like to dress myself, you know?! The lady’s maid sounds good, but..sort of an annoyance too, I think. And I’d prefer to make my own coffee or tea. It sure was a fabulous to see how people lived though!
One day I woke up with a question, “Did they ever cook for their kids?”… I just realized that I had to get down to get lunch ready for everyone.
Wraps work for so many different occasions. They are great picnic food, game food, and they make for great lunches.
I am a big big fan of packing lunch boxes for the family. Not only are they delicious, but healthier too. With a little bit of a prep the night before and 15 minutes in the morning, it’s a good and nicely packed lunch. The lunchbox from PLANETBOX is easy for portion controlled meals too.
Hope you get to try it out. Have a wonderful week.
