Since we are constantly asked what we eat, I have decided to post our dinner menu plan for this coming week. Over the next few days I will add the cooking tips and the recipes we use.
There are several things to note – we almost always have certain basics in our fridge. These include cooked brown rice and prepared beans of some type; this week it is navy beans. In our cupboards we keep a supply of things like olive oil, nuts, herbs, spices, canned and frozen veggies and salsa. As a practical matter we buy bulk and stock items like rice, beans, nuts, flours, oils, herbs and spices once a month on a “big shop” day.
Every weekend David and I spend part of a day procuring and preparing the food for the week. We have a lot of fun and use it as quality time together spent shopping, cooking, talking and singing to the tunes on Pandora.
