Oh, good idea. That will also help me plan my meals before the day I'm trying to eat... And then I can pick stuff up on my way home. It's a bit tricky, because I live out in the boonies and the grocery store is a little out of the way, but I'm going to try and plan on two days in a row, maybe? It's so hard when I never know if I'll be cooking or not... And I hate when I buy food and it goes bad or something.
Oh, I know that feeling well. I'm lucking in that my grocery store is close to home and on my commute route to work. I find that its useful to me to 'shop european' some times, and buy ingredients for dinner on the way home. The more I cook the less I'm doing this, but when I cooked rarely and planned to cook even more rarely, and didn't have many useful ingredients at home, picking up what I needed on the way home was a big help. Also, learning substitutions is good too! Most of the time now I have staples to make a decent meal with. If I'm following a recipe and find I'm lacking an ingredient or two, rather than despair and not bother, I substitute what I can and make the recipe my own.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's learning to dance in the rain.

I'm having trouble finding time to cook. Last night I actually did have time, but there was literally nothing in the house to eat and I didn't have time to run to the store... It's a little frustrating when that happens...
