For most of 2017, I planned diner as I rushed home from work. It was inefficient and a costly way to prepare food often resulting in buying precooked food from grocery stores or restaurants.
I have graduated to preparing meals a week in advance. I hope to eventually prepare a month in advance. Currently I only prepare dinners. My next step will be to add lunches for the week. As I work toward monthly preparation, I will start using coupons and more strategic shopping.
I have now grown my own lettuce indoors and learned much doing so. I want to add to tomatoes but think rosemary and other herbs will Be next. By 2019, I hope to be growing most of our vegetables in the house or in a greenhouse. I am optimistic.
