So today I decided to go to Costco without a plan. Because if there's anywhere you want to impulse spend, it's Costco. But we needed fruit... and popcorn... and milk... So obviously it couldn't be put off even one more day, because when you're out of popcorn how do you live, right?
Anyway in a half hearted and futile stab at sort of trying to kind of menu plan while I was there, I decided that I was going to just walk down the frozen food aisle and make a menu. Not actually buy the prepared stuff, but just get ideas and then go buy the stuff to make it.
I don't even know. Don't ask.
something about nutrition. or saving money. obviously, time is not a major factor these days.
maybe I was delirious.
I decided I would just write down the first main dish I walked past in each category (italian, fish, mexican, etc...) and that would be my menu for the week. My motto is; if you're going to be disorganized, at least do it with a complicated system.
So it came out:
Dinosaur Chicken Nuggets
Mandarin Orange Chicken
And then I realized that while I wouldn't mind eating that stuff, (with the possible exception of dinosaur shaped anything) it sorta made me tired to think about cooking it.
All this time I thought I was uncreative... and it turns out I'm just lazy.
Spaghetti and tacos it is.
