Here’s what Table365 partners Kimberly and Sharon have to say:
Keeping my pantry and freezer stocked so I have what I need to create three meals a day is my biggest challenge. I’m still surprised by how much food our family of four eats in a week, and with two growing boys, I’m afraid I still don’t buy enough (especially meat and produce) to last an entire week. Also, every time I feel “ahead” by making multiple batches and freezing meals, it seems that we eat them before I intended, so keeping the freezer stocked is a constant relay. I’m working to cook larger batches of meals and find additional outlets for perishable foods (dairy, meat, produce) without making multiple trips to the grocery store every week (grocery delivery, CSA, or Amazon Fresh for example).
I was originally going to say “time,” but the truth is that I know I could carve out time to prepare or at least organize some of our family meals when I need to. My real challenge is motivation. The monotony of providing three meals a day, every day, kind of kills my desire to cook – and I love to cook. To curb this feeling I have accepted that right now I rotate about 10 reliable meals that satisfy and nourish everyone. Now, when inspiration hits it‘s fun, but otherwise I have my go-to recipes that my family enjoys and that I know how to cook easily and efficiently!
