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 live in Cincinnati, OH.
January 18- January 24
We spent the weekend in Nashville, cleaning out the last of the stuff from our storage unit there (hooray!), catching up with friends and family, and visiting the pre-opening of our dear friends new restaurants, Biscuit Love. If you’re ever in Nashville, do yourself a favor and eat some delicious brunch. Get a mimosa.
Traveling on the weekends like that always throws us off a little in terms of shopping and prep, which means I have lunch prep to do today. Luckily it’s an easy lunch and the sun is shining. I’ll take it.
