We try to be healthy and we try to save money. One way we do this is by cooking at home. Most weeks I try to make all of my breakfasts and lunches, and dinners every night but Saturday. That’s a lot of quality time spent in my kitchen. I’m not going to pretend that this time is always enjoyed, most nights I’d rather crash on the couch with a drink rather than head into the kitchen. But I have developed a sense of pride in trying a new recipe and having it turn out awesome. Even better, when it is pleasing to both B, a hard-and-fast carnivore, and me, who would happily be a pseudo-veg/pescetarian. The latter is harder to come by.
Knowing that our tastes vary so much, I don’t like to be left in a pinch. I started meal planning a couple of years ago and while it makes Sunday mornings kind of a pain, the rest of the week is pretty smooth sailing. I usually sit down Sunday morning and plot out the week before I head off to the grocery store. One of my favorite meal planning tools is Pinterest. Not that I always find great recipes on Pinterest (Holy butter and anorexic “recipes”! Am I right?), but I can save recipes there from some of my favorite sites:
Also, introducing Moxley! Don’t be fooled; I may pretend to be, but he’s the real boss of this house. I’m proud that I made it through THREE WHOLE POSTS without any pictures of him. He is as ready for Spring as I am. Please note that he has been licking the window trying to taste the sun. Ah, Midwest.
Do you meal plan? Have a great week!
