And now I present to you the awesomeness that is the ONE MONTH MEAL PLAN!

Crappy picture taken with my phone.  And the fact that it’s off center is driving me a little crazy.

Because I’m nothing if not an extremist. 

If I did cute little drawings like some of my fellow bloggers, I would have one of a crusader from the dark ages holding a large wooden spoon and shouting things like, “I said brown rice, not white!” and “Pork IS the other white meat!”  I mean, that’s funny, right?

But it’s true.  I like to take things to the extreme and there are moments (few and far between) when I want every aspect of my life to be choregraphed on whiteboards.  Extreme Organization.  It could be a new reality show.  Like Martha without all the “It’s a good thing” crap.  Maybe I’ll pitch it to Kable Town. 

Okay, I realize that sounds pretty whacky.  I suspect it’s the NyQuil talking.  So, I’ll try to wrap this up before someone calls the FBI tip line on me.

After my assessment of January’s pantry challenge, I decided to try something a little different… 

My chief complaint was meal planning boredom.  And I realized that my kitchen is stocked with essentially the same food week in and week out.  Because that’s what’s cheap.  And I know what to do with it.

All this led me to the conclusion that if I want to prepare more exciting meals, I need to plan further in advance.  That way I won’t feel so bad buying an item that I don’t use regularly because I will have more need for it in the near future.  At least that’s what I’m telling myself. 

So, I’m going to give this a shot for February and see how it goes….  Wish me luck!

    I am thinking about doing a white board in the kitchen for our meals as well. Just after I move in…I have some suggestions for meals as well when we get together sometime.

    I like it!! I would love to do a whole month menu. But usually I'm struggling to come up with 2 weeks worth of ideas and give up there :)
