I don't know what I'll need from the store yet, but this is what I'll be eating next week:
Stewed Chicken, couscous, frozen vegetables (lunch)
minestrone or fish soup + smoothie (dinner)
pineapple cake (sweet treat)
For breakfast I eat hot or cold cereal or a bagel or English muffin or eggs with milk coffee.
I round out my nutritional needs with fruit at one or more meals.
I usually eat the same thing over the course of the week. I break up the monotony by eating out once or twice during the week or making a tuna or cheese sandwich for a lunch or dinner.
I'm new to cooking and since no one depends on it but me, this works.
I buy only for next week. In the future I might try cooking and freezing a month's worth of food, but I'm not there yet.

I'd love to hear what you get on your shopping trip. That's where I have difficulty. I can't decide what to stock up on. It seems everytime I try to plan ahead I end up throwing food out because it goes bad before I get around to using it.

I tried this challenge before, but wasn't able to commit to cooking as I ate out most of the time. This year, I've been cooking and plan to continue feeding myself even more.
For the challenge I plan to look up recipes on Thursday. Go shopping on Friday or Saturday. Cook on Sunday. Enjoy my home made meals every day of the week.
Breakfast and lunch are already part of my routine. I plan to add dinner and snacks to the home-made equation. I want to cook one soup and one fish dish as well as a healthy dessert to make my fun complete. I already cook a yummy starch, vegetable, and non-fish protein dish. These things are my lunch.
This is going to be fun and I'm sure soup and fish will be much more enjoyable that pb&j for dinner.
