I go through phases: sometimes I’ll plan a week’s worth of dinners, do the shopping, and make meals according to my schedule. And sometimes (really, more often), we eat by the seat of our pants. With just two un-picky mouths to feed, seat-of-the-pants works out okay, usually.
But truth be told, I love meal planning almost as much as I love cooking, and I’ve been thinking about sharing with you some of the ways I go about making sure that we’ve got home-cooked breakfasts, lunches, and dinners ’round here almost every day of the week. Meal planning for the quarter-life set. Would you be interested??
I love making fish for dinner, but it does involve more carefully planning, than, say a quesadilla. Fish goes bad after a day or so, and while I’ve been known, occasionally, to let a bundle of greens wilt or a mango rot, I’m not going to leave my $10.50 per pound cod to the same fate. Which means when I buy fish, I’m basically devoting myself to it. (And look–this dish uses up that mango!)
