Basically the general guidelines

  1. we will allow ourselves to dine out once per quarter to allow for the occasional business meeting or special celebrations
  2. if we are out on business or having a meeting in a coffee house we can order the bare minimum needed to mix in, no need to be bigger freaks than we already are, right? **snort**
  3. coffee does not count, we gave up fancy coffee long ago so the occasional coffee we feel is not a problem
  4. if on a business trip there is no way we will be cooking from a hotel room


2 days in

So we are 2 days in and I just wanted to say I am rocking this thing!! OK, I made it 2 days and I haven't freaked out yet might be a better summary. Actually I do get a panicky feeling every once in a while but all I'm doing is trying right? If I don't make it what are the consequences of failure? None, except failure.

One thing I am going to do is plan for a week of meals. Not a specific meal for each day that way I don't have pressure to make a certain meal each day and then feel weird when I don't actually make THAT meal. It's a bit more freeing especially when I can't find the specific stuffed cabbage recipe I wanted to make. Tonight we are actually having baked falafel and tater tots. Last night we had roasted cabbage with cheese sauce, vegetable pie and green peas. Why bother with a menu plan? Well it helps in planning a weekly shopping trip and it reminds me what the heck I was going to use that can of beans for anyway.

So onward to day 3/365. Going boldly into the future.

Peace and Love
