I live in Assisted Living and have three meals daily  brought to my apartment since our dining room is closed due to QVD19 therefore I have no need to cook or grocery shop.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone wore a surgical type mask.  Still a lot of people shopping with  no protection (especially for others).

We do the same, but not just due to the current situation.  Cooking for two is ok, but cooking for 4/2 is even better.  Easy second meal.

We've been making double batches for our dinners, so they last for 2-3 dinners.  If we don't feel like eating the same dish for the next day, we'll freeze what we don't eat the 1st night and save for later.

During this time of coronavirus we need to be very careful.  I shop at prince cooper and trust thecleanliness  and butcher.  So i have no qualms about any of this Covid-19 crap.  They have a very nice selection but i tend to cook with either chicken,  85% lean ground beef, or they have good sales on other cuts at times; it really plays to look for deals and recipes

I buy dried beans and cook up a pot once a week.  I use some to make a baked bean dish, some to add to soups, and freeze some for future use in bags.  This cuts out the sodium, and one package of dried beans cooks up to replace 4 of the canned style.  Beans with a whole grain like brown rice make a good protein dish.

Make a menu plan first. Mine normally covers about two weeks. Then check to determine what ingredients you are missing in order to make your menu items. I often plan to make one or two things that I can prepare and freeze for later as well. 

Record your missing ingredients on your grocery list. I organize mine in the following categories, but organize yours in the way that makes the most sense to you:

 

  Produce

  Meat

  Dry

  Refrigerated

  Frozen

  Other

 

Be sure to think about breakfast, lunch, and snacks, too. Also think about substitute ingredients in case your store is out of something. 

It would be great if I could get delivery or curbside pickup from my favorite store, but I can't, so this makes my shopping trip much more efficient.
