I picked up my CSA basket on Friday, and realized that my 12-week order is coming to a close.
I’m deliberating whether to order another one, or go without.
The weekend wasn’t as hectic as I thought it would be; but it was hot. This lead to us eating out rather than in as, by the time we were home and it was time to eat — neither of us had the inclination to cook. It’s an old problem come back to haunt us.
This week Organizing Junkie points to 30-meals system. The concept (explained over several posts) is to organize 30-meals into a binder and cook mostly from that. I guess it’s something I usually do; but I’ve not tracked the meals. So now I’ve started. Meals with a * beside them denote something I cook often (and not just repeat in my menu because I forgot to cook it last week). I have a great recipe binder (a Christmas gift from a friend), a terrific recipe book (once full, destined as a gift to a friend), and of-course, my springpad. So there’s lots of ways for me to capture my favorite recipes; but I suspect I’ve got 30-meals (or more) by season. I don’t tend to make casseroles or slow braises in the summer; nor do I plan meals around salads in winter.
