Our freezer is almost empty and ready to be defrosted. I have said for most of the winter that when the weather got warm, we were going to start using the Spark Menu full time for the summer. I will substitute items and switch meals around some, but I want to try new foods, new recipes, and I want to learn to think about food differently. I want to stop asking myself this question: "What am I in the mood for?" Food as fuel.
I am overwhelmed by the length of the grocery list. I do see a lot of things on the list that we already have. I am nervous about how much all this is going to cost. We did the Spark Menu for a week this winter. I don't remember it being any more expensive than usual. I do remember the fresh produce guys smiling and talking to me more than usual.
I like to cook. That's not an issue. Organizing and planning. That's an issue. I'm such a fly by the seat of your pants person. It's gardening season here, and it's just SO busy. Establishing priorities is such a challenge for me.
I would love to hear about others' experiences with the Spark Menu. Advice. We won't be full time Spark Menu this week, but probably next week.....
