Meal planning


I'm in a cooking rut. There. I said it out loud.

I'm stuck between I'm ready for winter to be over and winter is not over. At all.

It makes me not want to plan. And so, at 5pm, you can find me standing at the fridge, gazing in, hoping something will jump out at me. And fast!

Because nothing is jumping out, I've been flying by the seat of my pants (well, skirt) and my family is severely underwhelmed.

And now, I have a 10 pound bag of chicken from Costco that is taking up all visual space in my freezer, and it seems I always need what is behind it. I should really do something about that. I'm thinking, big bag goes in the basement freezer, then I'll keep a smaller bag with this weeks chicken plans upstairs?

Since yesterday and today are now over, I'll start with Wednesday.
