The idea for this blog is simple: I love to cook, and I love to eat. My husband especially likes the latter, even if he has a slightly picky palate. Both of those things require planning ahead, especially if you’re 1) trying to be budget conscious and/or 2) trying to watch the waistline. I do a mediocre job at both, and this is my attempt to change that.
By plotting out the week ahead against the calendar, figuring out what nights I’ll cook, making a grocery list to fit that plan, executing it… and keeping track of it, I should be able to figure out which meals we like, which meals are easy, which ones are less so but are worth it, and most importantly, which meals we can turn to over and over again when inevitably, my planning fails.
Sunday – Polenta with Swiss Chard in the crockpot
Monday – Coconut Curry Salmon
Tuesday – Book club, aka WINE & CHEESE night
Wednesday – Ground chicken lettuce wraps
Thursday – Out to dinner with friends
Friday – Frozen pizza (can we call that a real plan?!)
Let’s do this.
