Menu Planning is HARD WORK!

Seriously though.

It’s really hard.

Esp when the one I love is at work & can’t chat. And I’m trying to take into consideration what he might like for dinner.

And how do people menu plan for the weekends? HOW! I seriously have no freakin’ clue what to put for the weekend. Monday thru Thursday I got this down. Friday during the day I’m good. But Friday dinner thru Sunday night, I’ve got no clue. None.

That’s what I have so far. It all looks good & sounds yummy. It’s very do-able.

But for real. It’s hard work.

And then you have to make a grocery list & figure out everything you need.

And it’s complicated by the fact that the one I love & myself don’t live together. We live about 30 minutes apart. So when I cook for him, at his house, it’s a pain. And when I stay with him over night I have to pack lots of food.

This take tons of planning.
