Just need to complain a little bit right now…
I live on my own, and try to be home for dinner around 4-5 nights a week. The remaining 2-3 nights are usually spent either with Boyfriend or Best Friend, BFs family, my family, or eating out. I go grocery shopping around once a week and do some basic meal planning.
The problem is that recently, I never seem to be home for dinner. Take this week for example. I go grocery shopping on Sunday and plan around 4 meals for the week (ratatouille, homemade soup, black bean burgers, etc.). And then…
Monday: I had to go to the dentist after work (multiple cities over), and its too late to cook dinner by the time I get home
Tuesday: I have a Bible study on Tuesdays where snacks are usually provided. The day before, they let us know that they will be providing dinner as well
Wednesday and Thursday: My grandparents decide to come in from multiple states over to visit (we found out a few days ago). So now, I am spending these two nights at my parents house for dinner
I am just a little frustrated. I bought a ton of fresh produce, and now I just think about it sitting in my fridge all week going bad. I mean, I *might* be able to have 2 nights at home to cook… Ugh whats even worse is that I usually have leftovers for lunch, and since I have not been cooking dinners, I dont have anything of substance to bring.
