Shane went back to work this week, finally. He hasn’t worked in about 3 months because of his lousy old—and now totally new—knee. Having him back at work is going to be good for our increasingly sad little bank account, but man am I going to miss having a full-time cook.

Dutifully, Shane sat down on Saturday and planned this week’s meals, and then shopped for them. So we’re more or less in ok shape. Except for that whole thing about there not being enough hours in the day.

We’re revisiting quick, weeknight meals for the foreseeable future. Tuesday was easy, vegetarian Black Bean Soup and quesadillas. Rose pointed out that the soup is more or less the same beans we usually have, but eaten with a spoon. I’d add that the soup is quicker to prepare.
