I recently came up with fourteen meals we all like, and a list of what I need to have on hand to make them. I don't plan a certain meal for a certain day but, since I shop every other week, I know I will always be able to make each of those meals once between shopping days. That way, I'm "planning", but leaving room for days with activities that I hadn't counted on, or days I'm ill or too tired to cook the scheduled steak-wrapped-in-bacon (yeah, that's one of the
), or when we're just not in the mood for a certain meal.
How do you do it?
