Meal Planning: Real Life
Posted By Jessica Fisher On May 9, 2010 @ 2:21 pm In Good Eats,Meal Planning | 8 Comments
Real life is busy. Real life is too many things on my to-do list and not enough time. Real life is rich and too important to pass up. So I have to find short cuts in order to save time for more important things.
Many nights this past week, we’ve enjoyed meals or parts of meals that I had prepared beforehand and froze. This has not only been a great timesaver, but also a great way to cut back on my grocery spending . We’ve healthified our eating habits, too, by having more homecooked items versus storebought convenience items. It’s amazing to me how quickly my kids go through homemade instant oatmeal mixes !
Here’s our meal plan for the week. Real people, real food.
11. Beef Tacos, Fruit Salad  - The taco meat is already to go, stored in the freezer with a bag of shredded cheese. Add shells and other toppings, stir up a fruit salad. I like mine layered .
14. Anniversary Dinner
