Planning,,,,,,,,, the planning is the secret for me... If I make up a menu for the week,,, I can plan ahead and not have to scramble (eggs) at the last minute. When I get home from the shop I don't mind doing food preparations if the decisions have already been made.... At the beginning of the week I give Dave a list of groceries that I need and Voila! The groceries magically appear in my kitchen later in the day! (That's right, I rarely see the inside of the grocery store...........you envy me,,, I know.) I know not the cost of a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk......
It's a lot of crock pot meals,, and things that taste good when reheated,,,,but I am cooking again.
Asparagus soup was part of today's menu........ tasty, if I do say so myself!
If you drive past my house tomorrow morning and see me grilling steak at 7:30 AM, while wearing my nightgown..........it's because we are having fajitas for supper........at 2 PM (Dave) , 5 Pm (me) and whatever time Ghen gets home!
