It was actually a great opportunity to thoroughly clean the refrigerator.
So, after a week of ordering food via Foodler, I decided that the time had come to act like an adult, and prepare for the week this weekend. On Thursday I went through my cookbook, and decided on four quality meals for the week. I figure there will be leftovers with each meal, so that will suffice for either lunch, or even a quick re-heat the next night. Saturday was my day for food shopping.
This week's menu:
- Pot Roast with Fall / Winter Vegetables
- Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Spring Vegetables
- Rosemary Chicken with Balsamic Glazed Onions and Polenta
- Escarole and Beans
My shopping list was pretty extensive, as I needed absolutely everything. $120 later, and I have a stocked fridge. I'm ready for the week ahead.
I also took the opportunity to try to buy some of the fruits and vegetables that I talked about in Stuck in a Rut. I decided that I would not buy apples, as my history with them (and throwing them away) so I bought grapes and grapefruit. I also bought carrots (some will be used in the Pot Roast and the Roasted Pork, but the rest are good for snacking), as well as celery (delicious with peanut butter). I also bought some yogurt and a few things for the pantry.
Here's to hoping that we have a week of delicious meals! I will report at the end of the week the results, as well as next week's menu!
