food food food

Food has lately been a little in the background for me.  I have a couple of pictures that I can post about dinners, but nothing too exciting - for the most part I've been making some standard meals (hamburger patties and pickles, or chicken sausage with bell peppers, lots of caesar salads and taco salads.)  We're in a good spot with meal-planning where I'm usually two or three days ahead of the game, not quite the weekly planning that I like to do, but enough to keep us eating with some balance and usually (usually) at home.  It means I have to go to the grocery store more often than my ideal, but Sophie is a fun co-shopper, so it's not too much hassle.

House projects and visiting family have shifted some of my focus.  I'm also finding that the cost of ingredients is keeping me tied to the basics for the most part - just for a couple of budget cycles.  There are exceptions, like buffalo steaks the other night :)  I'm looking forward to building further on our foundation of meals and planning it out in the future, but I'm not in a rush.  It's nice sometimes not to be rushing!
