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.
April 26-May 2
I got herbs planted this weekend! I also planted a few flowers around our front porch so we don’t have the sad, unloved house on the block. We’ll leave that crown for someone else.
Our neighborhood farmers market opens this weekend, and we’re very hopeful that it will have some solid vendors, since it’s so easy to get to, unlike the main Cincinnati farmers market.
Fingers crossed for strawberries!
