Last month on Food Your Way I shared a 5 day menu plan that included a lot of pantry staples or other ingredients that are usually on hand.

Today I’m waxing eloquent about how to make your menus build on one another to reduce waste and save time. I’ve included a 5 meal plan that features bacon and chicken as well as some of my favorite dinners. Head on over to see what you could get cooking and jump in the conversation about kitchen shortcuts.

  1. Wow that looks delicious! Thank you for the article, because really who has time to put a lot of thought into a health and quick meal?! I work and go to school in addition to taking care of my youngin’s so I don’t have much time to plan what should be made for dinner! And also always seem to be missing an ingredient or two when I do get ready to throw down in the kitchen! This is very helpful in introducing some ways to be able to cook regardless!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
