Meal planning. Who has time for that?
Actually, I can think of two family friends of ours who do.
One set pours over cookbooks and online food sites each weekend after the kids go to bed, creating the upcoming week’s menu and subsequent grocery list.
The other does the same, but goes a step further to write up the weekly menu on a crafty chalkboard in their kitchen.
I’m impressed, because I work the complete opposite!
I buy most of my groceries based on what’s on sale at the grocery store in a given week, and then build recipes on the fly (or look them up) for dinner every night.
I’ve dreamed of making order out of my weekly dinners, but with life so busy I’m overwhelmed by the thought of it.
And this from someone who could sit down and read cookbooks like novels.
I recently heard about another tool to add to your meal planning kit: The Six O’Clock Scramble.
After taking a look I decided to give it a go.
In addition to weekly meal plans that come with grocery lists already put together, they also take into account picky eaters (you can make adjustments to the menu if need be), what foods are in season AND they can incorporate the ingredients from a CSA if you’re participating in one, like me!
