Since working from home and being at home with Eli, I'm trying to do better at cooking dinner and making weekly meal plans. This is something that I've always struggled with. I mean, how am I supposed to know what I want to eat on Wednesday when it's only Saturday?
Before Eli, I did good to cook once a week. We'd sometimes go a month without a home cooked meal, but now, family dinners are very important to me. I want Eli to grow up with some home cooking and I want him to learn that you can eat healthy, yummy things.
I always find myself scouring the internet for yummy new recipes and trying to find quick, easy, healthy, yummy meals for our family. It's not always so easy.
So, this week, I decided to make sure that I have chicken, pork, fish and ground beef on hand at all times. That way, I can thaw out the meat for whatever meal I find and I won't be asking Fred to stop by the store on his way home.
I may not be "meal planning" 100%, but I'm taking baby steps.
Do you have any tips for meal planning?
