    I just wanted to thank you two for always keeping it real! Kate, I, too, struggle with the dinner thing every. single. night.
    I think it’s been a point of contention between my husband and I for over the 20 years we have been together. I don’t think I obsess over it, but I would LOVE to have some kind of plan each week of what we’re going to eat every night. He doesn’t see the point in it (never has). Thing is, if there’s not a plan, there’s not dinner. We don’t really eat out, so whatever we have in the house is what we have to eat. The fall-back option is pasta. While I love pasta, my body loves carbs too much and holds onto them for all it’s worth, so other options would be SO much better.

    I agree, a plan would be wonderful (as would my ability to just not be worried about it), but we’re not there yet. Good luck to you and Mike for getting that ironed out!
