Meal Planning: Organizing Your Menus and Groceries Together
Posted By Jessica Fisher On February 7, 2010 @ 1:32 pm In Good Eats,Meal Planning,Uncategorized | 6 Comments
This month is a crazy one already. Not only have we been battling coughs and colds, but my father-in-law has been staying with us while he attends a training class for his business. Couple that with my out-of-town trip to Nashville and we find a household that is not necessarily in a groove.
To make things a little easier for my meal planning, I created this planning sheet, Menus and Groceries List . Down one column I can list all the meal ideas I have for the week, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and desserts. Down the other column, I can list the little sundry grocery items that I might not already have in the pantry. At a glance I can see what my meal plan is as well as what FishPapa might need to pick up on his way home from work or what I need to work into my weekly shopping trip. Feel free to use this planning sheet  if it helps you organize your menus and grocery lists.
That said, this week our meals include:
scones  and smoothies
fried eggs , bacon, and toast
muffins  and fresh fruit
pancakes  and Litl’ Smokies
Petit Dejeuner 
granola  w/ milk or yogurt and berries
What are you cooking up this week?
