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. We 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 23- November 29
Happy Thanksgiving week! The holidays are almost here and I’m so excited. The countdown until I can buy a Christmas tree has begun, and we’re going to get our icicle lights out of storage to hang on our house this year. So happy to have a cozy home for Christmas!
We are, surprisingly, not cooking anything for Thanksgiving, and are only responsible for ourselves and wine. We’ll be celebrating with old friends, and we’re so excited. Last year we were responsible for pretty much the entire meal ourselves, and while we enjoyed it, it’ll be nice to relax this round.
Meal plan is on the smaller side again this week, though I’m not including in the cost the pork belly that Josh snuck into our cart when I wasn’t looking. So sneaky, and so delicious.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving, and has much to be thankful for this year!
