What’s Your Meal Plan?

Posted By Jessica Fisher On August 10, 2009 @ 12:32 am In Meal Planning | 3 Comments


For some bizarre reason, when tummies are rumbling it seems like the whole house is in disarray, kids are whining, and parents can’t think straight. Sound familiar? One way to combat this is to have a meal plan. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but it’s a blueprint for your week, meant to give you direction and to help get food on the table. If you don’t already make a habit of meal planning, I suggest you make some baby steps to start. How to Plan a Meal [5] explains the basics of what I do each week to give our eating experiences some direction so that I’m not pulling my hair out when five o’clock rolls around.

In about five minutes this morning, I was able to come up with seven dinners to serve this week, mainly based on ingredients already in my kitchen. I added a few items to my shopping list later in the week. That five minutes will save me many more as the week progreses.

Here’s our culinary future this week:
