Menu planning this go-around took somewhere slightly over an hour, but that's mostly because I am making a lot of stuff that I don't usually make. This means that I needed to look up the recipes and ingredients for each meal instead of just listing them off the cuff as per my usual. I also have no idea where I'm going to put all of this food. My next refrig should contain a portable hole somewhere.

More just scary busy. :-) Without a menu plan, my family would be reduced to either eating at midnight each night or grazing on whatever random food item happened to be in the cupboard -- and I'm not nearly as skilled at fried cheese as you.

With the exception of the things I don't eat... it all sounds really nice.

My prep still hasn't come anywhere near up to par, but I am at last now making sure I have the basics in my house (meats, veggies, starches) so that I don't have to make a run to the store before each meal.

Any small amount of "less work" is still less work.

What things don't you eat? The seafood?

From: [identity profile]

yup, the seafood. And aspargus. And mango. But the latter two aren't a hard rule.

Happily, while I am not doing so hot this week, I did at least have a rough concept of a plan, and had prepped Thursday's corned beef in the crock pot the night before. The munchkin ate zero of it, so there's even more for leftovers tonight.
