My Princess 2009
I have the privilege of being the person who cooks just about every meal in our house. That means all of the prep work is mine as well.
From planning what we eat to the execution of the meal...it's all on my shoulders. Oswald used to help me cook on a regular basis, but his job has him pretty busy and I have learned that I love to cook. So it works for me because Oswald now cleans up after each meal.
Anywhoo-meal planning. That's where I was...
I usually start by deciding what meals I am going to cook that week, then I know what ingredients I may already have on hand or what I need to pick up at the grocery store. After doing this week after week, it gets old.
I get tired of picking meals because I feel like I am always picking the same meals. My Oswald likes some variety in his life. Where I could eat Mexican food every day, he would also like some Italian or some Asian food. It's hard for me to decide what meals we will be eating.
