Meal planning has been hit or miss for me these days. I’m in the final stretch of getting another cookbook submitted. That means lots of testing and retesting. Some meals are planned because they are part of my work; some meals are throw together affairs because this is, after all, survival mode.
My kids are currently in the stage of the game where they really look forward to normalcy. Or at least meals that are familiar to them. So, this week, I’m going to take a stab at making breakfasts and lunches a little more humdrum and a little less, experimental, shall we say?
