Wednesday when I got home from visiting my mother in Brenham, I was thrilled to have leftovers from Sunday to serve us for dinner. And that's how it seems to be going lately - its hard to cook for just two, so every meal seems like it will feed four or more. Usually, I package up the leftovers from a meal and zap them into the freezer straightaway for future meal or a lunch for work. Since I have been hating grocery shopping amid the whole pandemic, I've been able to stretch the food we have here. Like I say, its just two people, and I can get pretty creative at times.
I was too tired to even finish dinner!
I'm not sure if I should set routine menus going forward. It sounds and looks like we are eating the same things most of the time. I am still ordering fresh fruits and veggies from Imperfect and the variety of that is contingent on whatever they have. I'm getting a little weary of the daily dinner prep but its nice to come home to a plate of food all ready to heat up and there is no mess since I also clean the kitchen before I leave the house. Its just easier that way. On nights that I don't cook, one of us will pick something up. And although Hubby says "cooking is fun", he isn't doing any of it. So I think that we will also start up grilling again, as that is his forte.
Next week's menus have already been planned out and I'll just leave them be. But I might start documenting more of what we ate, not what we plan to eat. I think I should also start a rudimentary grocery budget and really look at what we are eating. I would like to go back to eating more fresh fish and less red meat for a start. I hear news that the grocery supply situation is going to get dire, but I don't actually see evidence of that in the store. And I think the time has come to stop all of the "comfort eating" here.
How is all the food preparation going for you?
