    What would really help ok a shopping list plus a schedule if when to prep in bulk—like Sunday, chop up all the _____ you will be using Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Or something like that. THe cooking takes time but so does the planning and shopping and I often find these peeps to be my rate limiting steps. Thanks for the great recipes though!
