I love to plan. It’s kind of a hobby for me. In fact my husband and I are planning a 10 year anniversary trip. At first I wanted him to surprise me. But then the planner in me freaked out and I needed to know so I could plan for the trip. (In case you are wondering, we are going to Mexico. I will look fierce in my bikini. Oh yes, fierce I tell you.)
So of course I make and follow a meal plan. At the beginning of each month I set our menu. I look at our calendar and figure out what nights we need fast meals or meals I can put in the oven and forget about for a few hours. I make a note of any date nights or times we will be out of town.
Each Monday I do our major grocery shopping and try to get everything I need for the week. I find that cooking is way less of a chore this way. No staring in front of the fridge trying to figure out what to make. I also find that we eat out much less when I meal plan. Saves money and we eat healthier. Double bonus.
Do you meal plan? What are you planning to cook this week? I will be making Chicken with Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Italian Sausage Stew, Pioneer Woman Pork Roast and Apples, BBQ Lettuce Wrapped Turkey Burgers, and the Barefoot Contessa’s Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken. All Paleoish and delicious!
So seriously, what are you making?
