Sometimes I go through phases where I’m really excited to cook different things and seek out new recipes to try, and other times I’m just like, “Ughhhh, I have to work out what’s for dinner AGAIN?! How does this happen EVERY DAY?!?!?” Definitely been going through one of the latter kind... www.jayeless.net

@jayeless This is where pasta and tomato sauce comes in...

@leonp Haha, I do often resort to variations on that in such times 🙈 Tonight ended up being a "scrambled eggs + a bunch of the veggies we had in the fridge that needed to be used up" night.

@jayeless, the last time I was in a longer such phase I tried to create a meal plan which automatically gives me the same meal option on the same day each year. But I was never able to really get it to work. It was just too much work :-)

@V_ Wow, a year-long meal plan sounds like tons of work! 😲 I do meal plan a bit, but sometimes I just don't feel like certain recipes (or don't feel like going to the effort that goes into cooking some of them)… sigh.

@jayeless it was not really one plan with a meal for each day. More a set of rules which then generate one ore two recommendation for each day (based on season and the day). But I never got it to work. It still a lot of work. Deciding what to cook each week is in my view the biggest hurdle to healthy and varied eating. And it has not getten easier now with a third person who has oppinions about what we eat ;-)
