If I make the same dinner several nights in a row, he gets tired of it (though I don't think he did with steak, haha). But only sometimes. Some of his food habits are hard to figure out heh. I have always been very dude-ish about food. When I started making my own lunches at my last job (after spending about $40/week to buy lunch in the food court), it was yogurt containers, PB&J on wheat, and a banana. Grape jelly, preferably.
He made a bit thing of rice over the weekend, I've been taking a little to work for lunches (with coconut oil to melt into it), and he's had some with dinner ("since I don't eat as much during the day"). We have frozen broc that's easy enough to prep, or I could pick him up some bags of fresh mixed veggies (we used to use a carrot, broc & cauli mix in our tofu stir fry days, shortly before I went primal heh). The meat is always frozen, so I guess that would just mean slicing some up before freezing so it defrosts faster and is pre-cut, or pre-cooking some over the weekend for him to use throughout the week. Still not sure how long it'll last, freshness-wise. Most of the time, it seems like I can keep stuff closed up in the fridge, cooked, for up to a week before I feel like it's questionable, but I've definitely encountered "turning" meat before then.
Anyway, I just want to make sure he'll use this stuff. I guess if he doesn't, I will, so it's not a huge loss. If I pre-cook for him, he'll probably go, "I can do that!" and start doing it for himself and I will worry less. In general, we could do with larger portions on the weekends to use throughout the week. Perhaps this weekend, I will make a stew, since potatoes don't seem to be doing me any harm. Cubed chicken breast sounds kind of sad, but that's what we've got, otherwise I'll go pick up some stew meat. Need to get carrots and some other veg anyway (he finds celery too bitter, so not that). Already have the frozen pearl onions. Maybe I'll just grab a chicken at Trader Joe's (they have reasonably priced organic free-range chix) so I can make bone broth after.
Sentence fragments today I'm up to 1500mg Tryptophan for the day and finally feeling functional. I'm getting some work done and making a real effort to use pronouns. I don't know why those go out the window when my head is on backwards.
