Most weekends I cook for the entire week. I not only cook for the two of us but for my dad and in-laws. I don't think I know how to just cook for two. That is how I learned to cook though. My mom always cooked large meals because you never know who will show up for meals and you must have enough food for everyone.

"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."
I am so thankful that I planned meals for the month as well as cooked most of those meals in advance! It was a little rough during the midst of it, but man, is it paying off now. We’ve eaten well without a lot of hassle. And the nights that things didn’t thaw in time? I was able to swap with something else because I had an alternate plan.
Yeah for make-ahead meals!
This is what’s on the menu for the week:
served with seasonal fruit and veg ◾Yogurt Pancakes ◾Not Mushy Oatmeal ◾Birthday Girl Breakfast ◾Waffles ◾Pumpkin Scones ◾Cranberry-Orange Muffins ◾Fried Eggs and Toast (Yogurt for the Girl)
