What's for Dinner?
I'm feeling pretty good today because it is 11:00 a.m. and I already know what we are having for dinner! Most days it doesn't work quite like this at my house. Usually around 3:30 I start looking through the cupboards to see what we can throw together. I call Bruce a lot and have him stop by the grocery store on the way home from work to get a few things. We end up having our "regulars quite a bit: tacos, taco soup, french dip sandwiches, sweet and sour chicken, pizza, and I admit it..cold cereal or oatmeal!
I decided to be more organized and try some type of meal planning. I've planned out meals weeks at a time before and then done one big shopping trip but for some reason it didn't work too well. Does anyone have a marvelous way they plan out menus? Or does anyone actually plan out menus?
I found this idea at littlenannygoat that you should check it out. If only I could think of 30 meals that my family will actually eat!
