    Default Te DS

    Here's me seeking DS...in my desperate moment...

    I'm using my Ne to plan, but seeking Te...who may organize my menus so that I can have the whole year planned out and not have to worry about what I'm going to buy each day, as I like to buy fresh meat. I hate freezing meats because it doesn't taste good that way. I also want to SAVE time...and be efficient; I don't know why I have to be this way...it's some desire. I wanna save money, reduce waste, get quality stuff...

    I think I'll go overboard if I plan for the entire year.

    So far, I've collected menus from around 50 restaurants I've loved and enjoyed. I can replicate recipes and I'm usually really good at it.

    And, I want to hire this person.

    A reasonable middle ground would be to do a rough, weekly meal plan and shop on that basis. You're not burdened with daily shopping, and yet still enjoy fresh food. Plus, this schedule is ideal for taking advantage of customer appreciation days, coupons, flyer deals, etc. (if you have the patience to structure those)

    You want to save, but also don't want to freeze meat?

    What if you try to see all this through the perspective of being Te-HA Si-DS? That is, an Irrational type. What wouldn't make sense?
    It's probably my opinion but you're rather messy, unorganized, spontaneous and unpredictable. Not sure how could an LSE cope with that.

    About the meats...idk if this would actually work as I have not tried it, and the idea just popped into my head just now, so it may be nonsense, but...

    Could you buy all your meat fresh at the beginning of the week, and then partially cook it all (to help preserve it and to lock in the juices) and then refrigerate it until you're ready to use it? At which point you'd cook it the rest of the way...

    I usually get my meat frozen, unfortunately. It's just so much easier that way...and cheaper...

    FWIW, this type of talk just goes over my head, lol. It does seem like a Te thing to discuss. I'd prefer to create a simple system or habit that doesn't involve so much planning. Maybe you can just make a random selection of your list each time you want to get some meat, idk.

    You know, I tried to have a whole month of meals planned out at a time once. It would have worked, but then things kept happening to mess with my plans...like a couple times we got invited to dinner at someone else's home; and then my husband's grandpa died that month and so we traveled for his funeral...Some of the food actually ended up going to waste that way . So I don't plan ahead anymore. I shop once a week and buy various ingredients, and then use my creativity (and stuff I already have in the house) to come up with a good meal on a day-by-day basis.

    If you want fresh food every day the only way to do it is to actually go to a market every day.

    I suggest making batches of meals per week. It's something I haven't quite done yet.

    THis isn't about Te or Ne or whatever, it's about doing it.
    I don't know why you are collecting menus from places.

    This, or, make meals that have multiple servings that you can then pull out of the refrigerator when you're hungry, like chicken noodle soup, beef stew, chili, beef stroganov, etc.

    This is what I do, plus overlapping recipes. That is, the chicken is all cooked at once and is used in enchiladas and then in chicken fried rice. And the black beans are cooked in a huge batch and go alongside the enchiladas and then in chili. And the chili is re-servable for lunches, and lunches or snacks can also be made of the enchilada sauce over rice and beans ... etc.

    That's very handy.

    I'm not picky, so I can make a big batch of something and eat off it for a number of meals.

    I'm not that messy. I have routines. Once my routine is established, it's easy sailing.

    Collecting ideas. I just don't want to cook chicken. I want to cook chicken with two side dishes. I want to serve a whole meal. I want to be just like my dual cousin. I went over for dinner and she had a complete meal in a jimmy.
