It’s time to build your dinner wardrobe.
Each day, you instinctively pick your clothing based on your mood or the occasion. Though you might struggle with the specifics, we bet it’s not too hard to know when to reach for your coziest yoga pants, grab those perfect jeans or when you need to step it up a notch with the perfect black dress or blazer.
We have taken this approach to meal planning; to make the first step simple.
For the nights when even the simplest “meal” is too much but you need to eat.
- Pots/Pans/Cooking Vessels: 1 or less
- Time: >10 minutes or less
- Recipe: None at all. Ever.
Quick (relatively), easy and satisfying. Perfect when you are busy and want a real meal but can’t bother with complicated recipes or too much of a mess after.
Pots/Pans/Cooking Vessels: 1 or 2
Time: 30 minutes (give or take)
Dress to Impress
The special meals for when you have the time and want to be in the kitchen. Not only for fancy days BUT these are great for the times you need to impress, treat yourself or have fun cooking.
- Pots/Pans/Cooking Vessels: Might be a lot (or not)
- Anywhere from an hour (or more)
Pulling your wardrobe together
Start by trying a few meals from each category; hold on to the winners and keep building this wardrobe. By starting with a collection of meals that fits your lifestyle you are able to streamline the first step in your weekly planning.
