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.
January 3-January 9
Happy New Year! We spent most of the weekend hanging out with friends, and I made the rather sad discovery that any more than two beers in one night means that I will feel ROUGH the next day. This isn’t an issue with any other booze, but a sad discovery never the less in such a beer centric city. I’ll be the one beer girl. Please send me all the bourbon, vodka, and gin.
