Let's talk meals! I said yesterday that I didn't really cook on our trip, but I'll admit that my "not cooking" is the same as many people's "cooking." I prepped as much as possible before leaving (cutting up carrots and celery, premixing the vinaigrette, etc.) I also designated Monday night as my big night in the kitchen, although I only spent about half an hour throwing together the crisp and boiling the pasta for Tuesday and the eggs for Wednesday while I scrambled the eggs for dinner that night. However, your mileage may vary.
