Recording Prepaid Expenses

Came across an interesting issue at work... Had an invoice that was approved in late December 2018, crediting AP and debiting prepaid expenses as it was for Q1 2019. However, it was actually paid (DR AP, CR Cash) in early January. What's the proper entry for something like this where the expense is hitting prior to the period of service but it can't be a prepaid because there's been no cash payment yet?
