Merry Christmas from the Hotel Cavell!
Beyond the usual canning, cooking this year has been particularly challenging. Working on mymasters, looking for a new job, then a different schedule that came with the new job, and Jane taking six weeks vacation made everything harder. At the beginning of December Suzy and I took a page from the old ways, and put together a meal plan. It's not prescriptive so much as a pattern, and it goes like this:
Sunday - "Big Cook" - Lots of extra to store for future meals
Monday - Soup
Tuesday - Grilled meat
Wednesday - Pasta
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Order in (usually pizza from our favourite joint, Bona Pizza on Donlands)
Saturday - It depends - Saturdays are varied, so we play them by ear
Leftovers from the day before become lunch the next day. Grocery lists are prepared in advance and scheduled.
Until then, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
