This week was a very busy one for me. So, instead of doing meal planning and setting myself up for failure, I decided to fly by the seat of my pants a bit. Some nights, I cobbled together dinner from leftovers. Some nights, the slow cooker prepared dinner for me. And some nights, we had takeout. And I’m okay with that.
