As is the case these days, I’m not sleeping too well in no small part due to being eager and anxious about how much stuff I want to make on the Conscientious Cooking (“CC”) front and on the getting-prepped-for-postpartum-days front (“PP”). And for the latter, which requires freezer space, then I have to think about how to move things out of the freezer to be able to add longer-term frozen items (i.e., postpartum soups that will hang out there for up to three months)!
What a logistics challenge!
That’s where I use Google Keep to make Q&D (quick & dirty) lists for shopping and planning and – you know me – I like to share them.
The shopping lists are deleted as I complete that shopping trip and it’s the “recipes this week” that I keep updating as plans evolve this busy week! The following text list is what actually happened. If only NPY had the care to know what I do and plan, he might appreciate it instead of it appearing that things just always get done and so it isn’t the least bit of a challenge at all.
