Dinner time is so hectic in our home- some days I really feel like my head is going to spin. It is absolutely imperative that I have a solid plan for our weeknight dinners, including some easy to cook meals for those especially crazy days. I need to be able to just pop these meals into the oven or microwave and get dinner on the table fast. Everyone is happier with a full belly, and my kiddos are adamant about not having to wait once that hunger hits.
So, the first step to meal planning for me is having a plan! Before I make my grocery list I usually sit down and plan 6-7 meals that we want to have for the week. I try to shop according to what I have on hand and what’s on sale that week, but I write out our meals and add all the ingredients and items I’ll need to my store list. I usually write our meals out in my planner as well so I know what I’m wanting to make on which day.
I also make sure to throw in a couple of easy to cook meals that I can just throw in the oven when we’re having a crazy day and I need to get something cooked but I can’t spend a ton of time in the kitchen cooking. My family loves the frozen meals from Marie Callender’s and PF Chang’s!
They’re so simple and easy to make and they help me get dinner done in a snap.
So, I double check my list and make sure that I’ve got everything I need for the week and hit the grocery store. Before unloading my groceries I try to quickly skim over my fridge and pantry and throw out any old or expired items and to do a quick reorganization. Once I add in the new things I’ve bought I make sure everything is organized so I can quickly and easily find things throughout the week.
