The way we work our budget, every two weeks, we fill our envelopes once I have my grocery cash in hand, Im off to the store. So I picked out 10 meals for the next two weeks. Once I figured out what we are having on which day, I listed the things that I didn't already have in stock at home that we still need go out and shop for. I made sure that I am making the easiest stuff (And stuff that could be eaten in the car if necessary) on nights that my biggy boy has Karate. Here is what I came up with:
BBQ Chicken and Sweet Potato Fries
Spaghetti And Garlic Toast
Burgers and Roasted Potatoes
Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken
Eggs, Hash Browns and Toast
Artichoke and Red Pepper Pasta
Pizza and Apple Sauce
(sub coconut flour)
Free day!!! sooo...
Sloppy Joes, Fries and (box) Mac and Cheese (for the kids)
Box Mac and Cheese
Im going to make my grocery list according to the things that I still need to buy and Im going to do everything that I can to stick to it. I have a marker board that I may write it all out on or I might find something a little more crafty and cute (Any ideas???) so that each week, it is staring me in the face and if I deviate, hubby and the kids will know!!
I used to do meal planning once upon a time...but I was never great at it. I really tried to start simple but I would LOVE to hear what you do, how you make it work, your process, and how you stick to it. Excited for the week of yummy dinners!!!
