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.

This is getting ridiculous. I’m going to have to start setting reminders to post on Sundays nights or something…
In exciting news, Josh and I booked our flights to Portugal for two weeks this summer! My daydreams now all look vaguely like the seven hills of Lisbon, and I love it. I need to start finding some portuguese recipes to try out in preparation.
