Safe meal planning hopefully will give me confidence for the future.
I managed to make all the meals I had planned for last week, so here's what I have on deck for this week. I realize my dinner choices are a little mundane, but I'm trying to branch out only a little bit at a time; I don't want to overwhelm myself with trying to make five brand new dinner recipes each week—I don't think I'd be able to handle that. I can just imagine me trying a new recipe, messing it up, and then trying yet another new recipe the next day, messing that up, too, and then ordering pizza for the family the next night because I'm so depressed! I'd like to plan for more successes, so I'm sticking with "safe" meals.
Hopefully by June I'll having gotten into more of a routine with my meal preparation so I'll feel more comfortable trying out more new recipes each week, but for now most of the safe meals I've planned for this week I've already made before this. The only new recipe this week is the potato soup.
Lunches: pasta, sandwiches, mac n' cheese, grilled cheese, tomato soup, fruit smoothies, peaches, apples, bananas
