The Deans Eat // Seventy One

Happy Monday Friends! I can’t believe that it’s the last week of June. Where is 2016 going? This year has been a whirlwind so far, and right when things start to slow down, they pick back up again. We were just getting into our slower pace life groove when Husband got a job offer and we decided to move out of state. We’ve got less than a month until moving day and life is getting a little crazier again. But I’ve got my lists, a system, and if I can stick to it, I think we will be good to go. I hope to write a little about our system later this week, then I will do a follow-up post after the move to tell you how it really went. Here’s hoping we can survive our first *real* move! (I don’t know if the last ones count…weird circumstances. This will be the first time we pack up all of our married life belongings into a truck and drive away to a new home and unpack it all there.)

While life was a little slower, menu planning wasn’t quite as important. We could run to Kroger 5 times a week, go out to eat, or just do whatever we wanted for food. We enjoyed the laid back feel for a few weeks, but it’s time to get busy and start meal planning again. We’ve got pantry food to eat through, money to save, and we need a little structure in our meals again. Meal planning is such a lifesaver in times like this! Today, Husband and I took inventory of the food in our fridge/freezer/pantry because I would really like to avoid taking any food with us. We will gradually incorporate these foods over the next few weeks to avoid waste. This might mean eating some not so great meals, but that’s okay! It’s survival mode and I’m okay with that.
