Meal Plan: January 25- January 31

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 25- January 31

Josh hacked an IKEA bookshelf for me, and this weekend we got it all set up and completely filled. This served as a good reminder for me that I really need to start using my cookbooks more, since they filled two of the cubes alone.

We got a dusting of snow this morning, though nothing compared to what we would be getting if we still lived in New York. Just enough to make everything a little bit prettier.

Stay warm, northeast.

Eat soup.

Total cost: Roughly $114

Average cost per meal per person, with snacks tucked into the mix: $4.07


  • Oatmeal with stewed apples (recipe to come)
  • Egg in a hole
