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 each for the two of us. Lunches are typically a double batch of whatever the recipe calls for. I make the lunches and do other prep work on Sunday. Nearly all items are purchased from either our local farmers market or Whole Foods. We are living in Cincinnati, OH.
November 16- November 22
Winter has arrived (it’s snowing as I type), so I’m in full cozy meal mode. The house is slowly coming together and feeling more like home, and I think that all of the cooking I did this weekend helped.
Few things can make a house seem more cozy than homemade waffles and pie.
Josh will be out of town a bit this week, so I did put one less dinner on the plan than usual, and made sure the other dinners would produce a good amount of leftovers for me to eat from while he’s away. Cooking for one just doesn’t always seem worth it.
