Now that you see everything I have in my inventory, look at my menu. I've planned for lunches and dinners. I have enough food during the weekdays while my 8y/o is at school that I don't need to worry about cooking for him. My meals are for weekday dinners and weekend lunches and dinners. You'll see where I have a list for breakfast, snacks and food preperations. It's simple. It may be a bit of a challenge to come up with meals but I have over 100 food posts so browse my blog and check it out. Any new recipes that I will make, I will post those so keep an eye out for that. Also, I don't eat these meals in a numerical order. I choose what we all agree to eat that day and plan it from there. There's no rhyme or reason to my numbering.
