Meal planning saves me. It saves me every week. It saves me every day. It saves me every hour.
The 30 minutes I spend every week doing a meal plan.....saves me 10 times that during the week.
Before....always wondering what to do for dinner consumed SO much of my daily mental time.
Try it...You will be amazed. Check out Meal Plan Monday if you need ideas or thoughts.
Here is this week....a bit burned out from a crazy cook week last week. So, taking it "easy."
Cheeseburger soup - a couple changes to this recipe in my house.....NO celery, I skip the sour cream, and I use 10 ounces of Velveeta. Also, I break out my food processor for EVERYTHING. It make the bits small enough that no one notices that they are eating veggies.
Chicken gyros - CANNOT stop eating these. Everyone who has tried them LOVES, LOVES, LOVES them.
Spaghetti and meatballs - I buy my meatballs from a local italian butcher....they are to die for. And, at $16 for 5 lbs, a bargain and saves me the time and effort
