What have you had for dinner so far this week?

Yes, we try things all the time. I usually get the ideas when I am in the store as I see things or I will keep the recipe aside for when I do go shopping.

We buy many things in bulk that last many weeks so I don't have to go shopping every week. We might have to pick up a gallon of milk if we don't the next week. I used peapod this last weekend and going to Costco this weekend so no need to get milk this week or next. We buy our eggs at Costco as they are so much cheaper and we get 2 bundles (36 each).

But how can you do that w/o things going bad?

Many things have expiration dates for awhile, yogurt, sour cream, eggs (which I buy in bulk).

Most things don't get wasted in my house-lol!!

It all depends as I will buy something if I am going to make something new or I will just buy it to have at home in case.

Based on the things you've posted that you eat, it seems like you have "normal" food in that sense that you don't experiment much with cooking new dishes that have special ingredients that aren't found in typical home kitchens.

Maybe. My family is not as adventurous with food as some other people might be. My dh is a steak and potatoes type of guy (not into much gourmet). I make new things for them to try but that does not mean they will like it. They have their favorites also, like anyone else.

I could never go more than a week w/o shopping.

When dd was still here, I usually shopped daily. Now I can shop every 2-3 days depending. I usually keep avocado, tomato and mozzarella on hand. That way we can eat that if we don't feel like cooking.

Tomorrow I am having a friend for dinner, and I think I will make salmon, broccoli with shiitakes, polenta sticks, and a Danish apple crumb for dessert (it has fresh breadcrumbs and blanched almonds for the crumb). Maybe some guac to nibble on before dinner.

I like spaghetti squash just steamed in the microwave, and then served with a really veggie-intense tomato sauce.
