*oy* This was work, mentally and organizationally for me. *laughing* I'm almost never this organized, and it's an effort to do so with menu planning. I cook by mood, keeping a well stocked interesting ingredient pantry....or so I think. I kind of have a rough idea of what I can and will make when the mood strikes, sometimes days in advance, but write it down? That I do not do. But having the need to clear off my plate since the first of the year to allow for some re-grounding to be more present, more respectful to myself...organization and little efforts are being re-worked. I'm not looking into the future to maintain this, but knowing that writing things down, spending less money, making less waste is easy on the heart and mind.
