Howdy folks! Today we're going to take a real intense look inside my brain. I'm going to show you how Charlie and I have conquered our weekly dinner schedule ... by meal planning! This is one of the greatest tools I've acquired in the last year. It's made a huge impact on the way we eat, the intentional time we spend together, and has made grocery shopping super efficient. Watch and be amazed.
Step One: Write down the days of the week. Simple enough. We always do our shopping on Sundays so it works out nicely.
Step Five: Making a grocery list. Look at each night's menu individually. Check your fridge and pantry for the ingredients you have already. Write down the ones you need. Your grocery list may end up looking something like this:
Now you are ready to take your list to the store, purchase ingredients, and make all sorts of wonderful planned meals. I really don't know how we'd do it without this menu. We eat the food we buy and don't waste the way we have in the past. It has worked wonders for us! I hope you try it and like it too.
