Instead of only my hungry mouth to feed up in here, now there are two hungry mouths to feed and since I’m not working right now, a hungry mouth (his) also needs to eat lunch.
I am fortunate that Myron is a excellent chef and doesn’t mind doing more than his share of the cooking. He also has quite the knack for pulling together the pantry items for dinner. I am, alas, not quite that visionary and am a slave to my few recipes. I am trying to add more to my repertoire, however.
What I am finding though is that several times a week we are still running to the grocery store in the evenings to pick up something to augment whatever we plan for dinner because it wasn’t in the pantry and I’d like to stop doing that.
In addition, at the beginning of April we are going to start the Couch to 5K program and we need to start eating and cooking a lot healthier than we have been doing thus far. After all, we want to look extra fine for the wedding pictures!!!!
We have similar food tastes and don’t mind leftovers at all, especially so Myron can take them for lunch the next day. And with good food being expensive to purchase, I am definitely trying to minimize our waste and make sure we eat all of what we cook.
So, gentle readers, please share your tips in the comments with us for better meal planning, recipe sources and anything else you have to say that would help us out.
