This week has really made it clear to me how much we rely on meal planning to get real food on the table. We had dinner plans Monday night, and last night we scraped together leftovers. Tonight, lacking both leftovers and dinner plans, we had snacks:
Beets from the farmers’ market, roasted in a tin foil packet with olive oil then dotted with a bit of goat cheese. Sopressata from Trader Joe’s, picked up with just this kind of situation in mind. The last crackers from the pantry. A bottle of sparkling cider.
As Shane said, these dinners are always the best. But I still can’t wait to get to the market this weekend, and to have real meals once we have real groceries on hand.
