Menu Planning in November

Nancy Zimmerman is hosting a “Eating at Home, the Month of November” challenge that I am participating in. While I value, at 22, my ability to go out with friends at the last minute and my flexibility in only cooking for two people on a regular basis, we have certainly gotten into a slump in which, when I don’t feel like cooking… in comes takeout. Therefore, although in my interpretation of the challenge I can go out for social occasions, rearrange meals to meet my mood that night, and go out for mystery shops… I am indeed menu planing for the month of November, and happy to share in this space. Who knows, maybe I’ll get crazy and throw in a recipe and picture or two while I’m at it. Anyway, I’m sure this disqualifies me from the prizes, but it’s good for my budget and my health, so count me in.
