Weekends are SO busy for me. Hubby works the first half of the day, then Biggy Boy has drum lessons and then I race off to work for a few ours. Sunday, we basically spend the whole day from morning to night, with a little break in between, at church. It is an awesome thing to be apart of. We love it, but weekends are busy.
I wanted to make sure I at least did a little bit of prep for this whole dinner dilemma that I am in. I made a VERY simple list of weeknight meals. I want to make sure that I start off simple while I am still getting the hang of this. I wont be doing anything fancy at all just yet. Remember, the purpose of this is to ease some of the stress that causes "Killer Hour" to be, well, a killer. I have five categories Chicken, Beef, Vegetarian Breakfast For Dinner, and Pasta. I just listed 4 meals under each category and put where I can find the recipe next to it. I still have a LOT to do but I don't want to be at a complete loss when I start my shopping on Monday. So here is what I have so far.
BBQ Chicken- Pinterest
Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken - 6 sisters (pinterest)
Artichoke/red pepper pasta
Mac and Cheese- Friend
Soup- Corn Potato
Breakfast For Dinner
Eggs, Turkey Bacon
Eggs, Hash Browns, Toast
What I plan to do is create some sort of calendar so that each weeknight is filled up with meals and then make my grocery lists from there. I will keep you updates on my process. Feel free to share what you do for meals and any tips....cause, boy, could I use them!
