There are so many steps to making a home meal happen. 1. Hungry belly. 2. Think of something to eat. 3a. Watch many taped episodes of food network, er, I mean, 3b. Figure out how to make it. 4. See what ingredients you have. 5. Shop for missing ingredients.
I found a free site that is helpful in this process. You can search tons of recipes and add them to a weekly food calendar/planner. The best part is, when you select the recipes, it automatically generates a detailed grocery list for you. Score. So,
I started using an online menu planning/grocery shopping thing.
I don’t think I’ll become dependent on this site, but I think it will be good to use when I have people in town or know that I’ll be eating at home a lot during a given week. Most of the recipes I viewed weren’t terribly innovative.
p.s. This week is turning out to be a lot of online stuff; my best advice would be to get over it.
