- Do better about choosing 2 or 3 dishes to cook each week. The leftovers can fill in on the other nights or can be taken as lunch. I need to remember that these can be simple things - grilled vegetables, stir-fry, black beans & rice, chicken on the grill. Planning a meal doesn't have to be a big, expensive production.
- Write down what I am going to cook that week on the chalkboard. That solidifies the commitment and hopefully will be a great reminder.
- Get groceries, but not just random things. Go with a purpose, buy just what I am going to use. A full frig is so much easier to make a lunch from than an empty one.
- Schedule my school visits so that I can stop by my house for lunch, which is what I did successfully last week. Sometimes packing up a lunch isn't very feasible, but it is always easy to make a quick stop in and fix something.
