Weekly Meal Plan with Grocery List #14 | Life as MOM

One of the things that I notice about life with children is that I don’t always have hands free to do something when I think it should be done or when it is traditionally done. I’ve learned to do whatever you can, whenever you can.

Meal prep is one of those things. If part or all of the meal can be made in advance and stashed in the fridge, then we’re going to be better off. I can do my kitchen prep (or my big boys can) in the morning. And the dinner rush is so much easier.

This week’s printable meal plan is a little like that. Many of the dishes can be made in advance, and several can even be frozen. That gives you lots of flexibility for when to do kitchen duty.

  1. Jessica, so many recipes on your menu look delicious. Especially those turkey burgers. Thanks for sharing.

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."
