Every week we make a meal plan for the week ahead. The plan accounts for 5 breakfasts, 4 lunches (plus fruit), 4 snacks, and 5 dinners for the two of us. Lunch ideas are typically a double batch of whatever the recipe calls for. I make the lunches and do other various prep work on Sunday. Nearly all items are purchased from either our local farmers market or Whole Foods. We are currently living in New York City, so things are more expensive than average.

My best friend Rachel and her husband Bryan arrive Thursday, so not a ton of meals to cook! Unlike when we lived in TN and cooked for out of town company, here we just go out. So many restaurants to try!
