This week was an EXACT reminder of why I thrive on meal planning and meal prep. Our flight home last weekend was delayed by three hours, which means there was no time for me to cook anything ahead of time. Let me tell you, winging it during the week at 8PM when we’re all tired and hungry and just want to eat is not ideal. I don’t know how all of you non-planners do it!! Teach me your spontaneous cooking ways.
I’m so excited to get back into my groove this week. I’ve already made list upon list upon list to keep myself organized and to make sure that everything gets cooked. Some might call it neurotic, but I don’t think so. It’s just necessity.
We are having a little belated Halloween get-together this week as an excuse to dress Remy up one more time and to actually get to wear our family costume. Obviously I’m hosting, which is INSANE, but it’s also kind of an excuse to bake an absurdly decadent cake. It’s gonna be good!
