Okay it's not so new, but it's more that I'm implementing it officially. It's call, eat what's in the fridge or starve. Well it's not that harsh, but that's the general idea.
We all know I love to cook, love it. The down fall is that I always have left overs, and I have a tiny horribly engineered fridge, which means stuff gets shoved to the back, where is dies a slow, chilly death. Then I throw it out, and I hate to waste food. Also there is the cursing, the cursing when I try to add more things to the already overflowing fridge. So to assuage this I've started having more left over nights. Which, who knew, makes dinner time so easy. I don't even fancy them up, I let everyone choose what they want, and they're happy! Bonus! And my fridge gets cleaned out!
I wonder how I didn't really clue on to this before, but it's working well. I still plan my meals two weeks out for the most part, but I work in left over nights a couple times a week.
This domestic diva thing, sometimes just gets easier and easier. Up next, hunting down and killing all of the dust bunnies that have accumulated.
