Every week we make a meal plan for the week ahead. The plan accounts for 5 breakfasts, 4 lunches (plus fruit or vegetables), 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.

A cat has started appearing more and more often on our neighbors’ roof, watching our every move. This, of course, makes our cat Minerva FREAK OUT and climb furniture and claw at the window while threatening to knock over various pots of succulents. It’s super fun (sarcasm).
Maybe the cat is just jealous of all that we’ve been cooking?
We’re celebrating Memorial Day quietly this year. Honestly, after years of Josh working retail, it didn’t even cross our minds that this year we could have gone somewhere for the long weekend. Oh well. There’s always next year.
Instead, we eat!
