...has been a fun adjustment!
A gallon of milk lasts us more than 1 meal [grin].
A quart of yogurt lasts a whole week.
Bake a batch of banana bread and instead of it all getting devoured for supper, half of it has to go in the freezer so it doesn't spoil before we can eat it!
One pizza provides us with supper and a lunch for Dan.
The trash only needs taken out once a week -- imagine that!
And laundry -- two batches a week keeps us all caught up.
I'm halving recipes like crazy, learning lots, and having fun while doing it!
The last few weeks I've been working at organizing my kitchen and now I'm working at organizing my meal plans. My goal is to write out the menu every week and since I finally succeeded this week, I thought I'd share with you what we'll be eating!
baked oatmeal (2x)
eggs and banana bread

Lunch: (Typically its leftovers from last week - works great for packing lunches!)
BBQ chicken sandwiches
chicken tetrazinni, cooked carrots, bread
Mexican lasagna and salad
chicken, mashed potatoes, beets
stir-fry veggies and chicken with rice
roast beef, baked sweet potatoes, beans, rolls
Snacks: muffins, yogurt, Hershey kisses, pears, carrot sticks
