Over a month ago, I wrote a post telling of my dislike for deciding what to make for supper. After that, I decided that I would try my hand at meal planning, and filled the entire March page of a calendar with ideas for every day. Except Sundays. I left Sundays blank as a flex day, just in case we went out one day during the week, or ended up with extra leftovers. If nothing else, eggs or sandwiches did the trick.
I enjoyed not having to think of what to make every day, so I have now done the same thing for April. These are the short steps I used:
1) inventoried the freezer so I know what I had on hand and what needed to be used
2) plugged those items and other ideas onto every day
3) wrote a shopping list
There are so many ways to go about meal planning, and this is my easy peasy version.
