New Year, New Plan

So, I think it's pretty safe to say that I am no longer able (or interested) in writing a post everyday. With two little boys to run after, we're lucky that I get something on the table every night. I don't need the added pressure of photographing it and writing the recipe. (Not to mention the fact that it's not always worth sharing.)

However, as my life has changed in the past two year, so have my shopping and cooking habits. I used to decide in the morning what I wanted to eat, pick up whatever missing ingredients I need, and cook whenever. Now taking a two-year old to the grocery store is something I want to minimize, so I have started making a menu at the beginning of the week and shopping only once.

That's where the new blog idea comes in. I'm going to keep track of my menus here . . . and at the end of the week I can post comments on what worked, what was a failure, and what changed.
