You gotta eat this week, so get your meal plan on.
In and around all the things that you need to do this week, feeding your family ranks pretty high.
I don’t know about your kids, but mine seem to be hungry, or hangry, as the case may be, all. the. time. Having a meal plan means that I’m prepared.
Case in point: as I type this post, destined to publish tomorrow morning, I realize that it is now after 5 pm on Saturday night, and my people are going to ask when we’re going to eat. It is just a matter of minutes before the first or the fifth comes in with that query. I also know that I neglected to pull the ground turkey out of the freezer to make the dish I had planned to make. So, that means I need a back up plan. That plan, pulled from my What to Eat When There’s Nothing to Eat bag of tricks will be nachos.
I have a plan, but it’s not as smooth as it could be. But, I planned. And I planned a back-up. See that? I saved my own bacon before I even knew I’d need to.
The moral of this story is: Don’t be a dork like me; follow through on your meal plan.
But, first you have to have a meal plan.
