On Sunday, Jono and I took on the exciting task of planning out our breakfasts and lunches for the next three days. We didn't really plan our dinners, minus picking up a few veggies and salad fixings, because we knew we were making Crock Pot quinoa chili that night and would have leftovers. The supplemental veggies are for when we're sick of chili. We decided to shop for only about three days' worth of breakfasts and lunches because we noticed that when we try to stock up for ten to twelve days, we end up throwing out uneaten, now-spoiled fruits and veggies. It's sad and annoying. We don't even have a compost bin where we can put these spoiled foods, so it's literally purely wasteful. And stinky.
Now, we're no strangers to planning our meals. We just hardly ever stick to that plan. Like, ever. I blame a lot of it on trying to make menus for ten or more days. Inevitably we end up going out, not really wanting what's on the menu, or coming up with some other excuse to deviate from what we wrote out. So, with a plan and a perfectly organized list, we filled our mini-cart. Shameless plug: the Wegmans app is ah-mazing. You make a list of what you need, then you punch in whichever location you're headed to, and it organizes your list in the order you'll walk through that store based on its layout. Mind. Blown.
