Why do you make a meal plan?
After way too many nights of not having a plan and running 15 miles into town for unhealthy, expensive take out, I got tired of bad food and being fast food poor.
5:15 P.M. to 6:15 P.M. is known as the witching hour at my house.
It never fails that if I don’t have a plan in place for dinner, my darling children soon become something wicked out of a horror movie.
Meal planning helps me from turning into a cranky and stressed out mom. It saves money (even when I buy fresh fruit and veggies) versus eating out.
Each Monday, I quickly sketch out my plan for the week. I’ve learned to be simple and flexible because we are gone a lot to activities or Jason might be working late or need my help on the farm.
I make fairly easy meals during the week and more complicated ones on the weekends when I have more time at home (and can include my kids in the prep work).
