KIS…Keep it simple. It depends on how many you are cooking for but start out by going to a cooking site and finding some easy recipes. Find 7 of them…one for each day and write the ingredients on a piece of paper and use it as a shopping list for your weeks groceries. Make sure you dont double up on things…if one recipe uses 2 eggs and another uses 1 and another uses 4 dont go buying 3 dozen eggs. Just buy 1 dozen and use what you need. Once you learn how to make a few meals this way you can start to modify the recipes by adding or taking away things you like or dislike. For example if you are making a stew you might like to add mushrooms but you might not like carrots very much so you can leave them out. After a while you build up a repertoire of things you can cook and it’s not so hard to figure out what to buy at the supermarket because it is all in your head.
