On Sunday night I stood in front of my very full fridge, perplexed, convinced that I had nothing to eat, and regretting the lack of planning that went into Saturday’s grocery shopping.
And then today I pulled out my meal planning template, wrote down what I had on hand, and realised that I’ve easily got about 3 weeks worth of meals without even trying. And then I felt a bit stupid.
Meal planning. It works.

Note: As is often the case with my meal planning, the weekend is more “record of what I ate” than “plan”.
