My New Place of Residence


Hello, my name is Kirsten and I live in the grocery store.  I feel like I should be introducing myself this way.  I've been to the grocery store almost every other day this week!  Alright, so that may be a slight exaggeration...but not really.  I underestimate the amount of food needed to sustain my husband and myself for a week.  When I lived alone, I knew exactly how much I should buy and cook to make it last for a week.  Now, I'm just confused.

I need to learn how to cook for more than one person and make those meals stretch...& stretch looong.  I knew the food situation would be tricky with my husband--not because he's a picky eater, but because leftovers hardly stand a chance past the next meal.  I'm actually really flattered that he loves my cooking and doesn't hesitate to dive right in.  But I like to make good use of my time and running to the grocery store every other day just isn't cutting it anymore.

I did receive some training during a brief "internship" when I stayed with my sister and her husband for a couple of months after she gave birth to their twin daughters.  Cooking for 4 adults (including my mom) was much different than cooking for just me.  But there's something really different about it now.  I think it's because there was that two month block of time while he was away for his training and I kind of forgot how to make meals last for more than one person.  Anyway, it's time to get out of that mentality and it's time for a new strategy!
