What's Cookin'?

I was inspired by Nate's sister, Anne, to start weekly meal planning in January 2012.  I also felt guilty suggesting meal planning to patients while not doing it myself.  In Madison, Nate's slate-sided cabinets were the perfect place for posting our "good eats." Now that we're renting, the best I can do is a tear-off pad stuck to the refrigerator.

Further inspired by a new moms' group friend who gave a talk on meal planning, I decided to start posting our weekly menus on this new page. My hope is to archive our menus so I can revisit them when I need ideas. I also want to share ideas with you, if you want them, and share good recipes, when I come across them. Maybe eventually you can share ideas with me.

I realize this brings a fair amount of accountability upon myself.  For example, I will no longer be able to serve chocolate shakes, popcorn and apples twice in one week.  Well, I could, but probably wouldn't because I would be embarrassed to post it. Here's some insight into our menus:

  • Typically, we go out to dinner once each week
  • We love leftovers and usually eat them for lunches.  If we have extra, I don't have to cook!
  • I only plan out dinner meals. Breakfast and lunch are based on what's in the fridge.  Special breakfasts on the weekends = bonus
