Well my menu planning for 12 days went on the fridge and per tradition life shuffled things around. Funny shifts, forgetting to put the prepped bowl in the slow cooker and my personal favourite (also last night’s dinner) “No. I’m done. Get pizza.”
Here’s how my fortnight was planned out. Keep in mind that I have an almost 2 year old and still do 4 shifts each week.
As you might notice there’s already a bit of shuffling. Mostly to make sure fresh vegetables don’t become slime in the crisper. The pumpkin in particular I almost lost but thankfully even though I forgot to drop the slow cooker in on Sunday morning it was fine to go ahead on Monday. My husband didn’t even pout when I announced meat-free Monday would simply transfer over to Tofu Tuesday. My fortnight has been a bit hectic so having plans that I can shuffle a bit has been sanity saving.
