I like cooking. But, I don’t like planning for it or shopping for it. Which is weird, because I love planning in general. I love being prepared, and I like cooking at home, but I have really struggled with meal planning.
For a while, this is what meal planning looked like for me. I would wake up Saturday morning and realize, we don’t have eggs, we don’t have milk. Shoot! We need to go to the store. There is no point going and getting a few things when we need to shop for the whole week. So, I’d sit down and try to figure out what we need. First thing Saturday morning is not a good time for this as I’m hungry and feel rushed to bang out a list so we can run to the store.
