Menu planning is not my strong suit. In fact, I seem to have a hard time actually planning and sticking to it week after week. I’ll start off strong, then fall off for several weeks. One thing that will help me with menu planning is time management- yet another area where I fall short. I’m definitely a work in progress. Ha ha
So menu planning and time management (so I can plan)- my goals for the next 6 months.
I am not planning for specific days, I’m planning the number of meals needed for a full week and will decide what meal for each day as we go. A little spontaneity makes me happy! I’m only planning dinner meals because the left-overs (and there are always left-overs) will serve as lunch for the following day for both hubby and myself. Saving time and money- a double win! Also, I am not including breakfast or snacks because those will basically be the same every day (eggs, protein packs, meat/cheese snacks, etc).
