It may have been the champagne talking, but on new years eve 2019 I found myself committing to testing out an idea for a side project. A weekly meal plan service that would include four recipes for lunch and/or dinners, and a bonus recipe for a breakfast, snack or dessert. At the time, amidst rounds of Codenames, we chatted about the potential for this 'service' to be an interactive app, for it to include a weekly grocery list, dietary substitutions, etc.

Though I haven't developed this idea to that level just yet, I realized that I could find a simple way to share the weekly planning that goes on in our house. Given that we're all currently self-isolating and cooking 3 meals a day, 7 days a week (on repeat), getting this page going now just felt timely.

Hopefully the ideas and menus below will inspire some exciting new dishes in your kitchen.
