Last week I realised quite late on Thursday night that I didn’t have what I needed to make dinner. I had ordered a butternut squash on my online shop for this recipe, and it ended up being no where near the size I needed to feed the five of us. I had nothing in the freezer that would be easy, and didn’t even have any tinned soup in the cupboard. I ended up ordering some (delicious) Indian food, but I felt totally defeated by it all.
The panic of realising it was dinner time and I had no dinner reminded of another reason why I meal plan: it makes me feel in charge, prepared, and ultimately, more calm. As someone who has always struggled with anxiety, anything I can do during my week to feel organised and prepared will never go unappreciated. The thought of facing another weeknight with blank eyes is too much for me, so PLEASE share your cupboard meals with me in the comments below! What do you make when you have nothing else planned and no real groceries in the house?
