This was so unlike me, but I left to go grocery shopping on Saturday with no meal-plan and no grocery list. Originally we were planning to just go to the Farmer’s Market, pick out some fresh fruits and veggies, and then plan our meals based on that. Also, I will be away Wednesday-Monday so Rob will be on his own. He does not meal plan. (He actually asked if I was going to plan his meals for him while I was away…)
So we made it to the Farmer’s Market and then decided that since we were already out and getting stuff done we might as well hit up the grocery store also. We were starving so figured we would grab lunch first. We ended up trying a bar that we have never been to called the “World of Beer” which was in the same shopping center as the grocery store. Next thing you know we were each drinking a beer and trying out a flight.
I guess maybe the beer relaxed me a bit because by the time we were in the grocery store I decided we would just buy a bunch of ingredients and figure out our meals as we went through the week. Rob was shocked to hear this, but was happy to go along with this no-plan meal plan.
I’m sure we will not be pleased when we realize we don’t have something we need, but I think I can handle it since its a short week for me. Rob may be making another trip to the grocery store later this week:)
The only food prep I did was cooked some steak to use in salads for lunch:
and black bean brownies from The Little Honey Bee (I mean obviously dessert is the priority, right?)
So if you came to this post looking for any meal planning inspiration, you might want to check out some of my previous meal-planning posts. I added a tab under “recipes” that will include all the posts I’ve tagged as “meal planning”. And in case you want to be more organized than me this week, check out my meal planning worksheet.
Did you plan your meals this week?
