With the advice of a dear friend (who just so happens to be a dietitian), I ...
[wait for it]
... created a menu for next week. [Cue applause]. Aren't you proud?
Friend Laura gave me some great tips on gradually beginning to plan a weekly menu so Andi and I can stop being in the place where we make bad meal decisions solely based on what's convenient. In that 70% of my problem is grocery shopping and being overwhelmed by prices and varieties and people, I decided to give CobornsDelivers another try. While it's a few more dollars to have the items delivered to my door, it allowed me to sit at my computer, Google recipes on the internet and search for the exact items I need for recipes. The groceries arrive this afternoon and then I'll start cooking!
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup (make a big batch and save some for leftovers)
Shredded BBQ Pork Sandwiches
And a few frozen meals like Amy's pot pies, einchiladas and pizzas.
Now the challenge will be coordinating schedules to see who's home what nights, and when.
Wish me luck!
