I've always been a bit annoyed by the whole K.I.S.S thing; but as they say if the shoe fits...
Sunday I spent about 3 hours planning out the week's menu. Trying to use what we had. So I rooted around in the freezer and looked through recipes and did calculations and thought of the people I promised to feed. I went to the grocery store to get a few super perishables like chicken and veggies. But I really was psyched to spend under 50 bucks and feed Adam, myself & two of our super developers who really pulled through for us over the weekend.
So this means a week of Trader Joe's combo meals.
Buffalo burgers, turkey meatballs salad & soup.

The rest of the week is looking almost just as simple.
Although the life of a design consultant is never dull and I am off to an unexpected trip down to the Philly area, Lansdale really.
I'll be setting up the Tandori Chicken for Adam to make tonight so he doesn't eat cereal or bon-bons for dinner and he can take that in for the fellas tomorrow.
