    I'm becoming domesticated!

    Advertisements
    So I'm finally starting my menu planner for this week! I'm gonna start by doing it a week at a time until I get the hang of it, but DH will be home tomorrow, so I'm going to cook breakfast for dinner (bc let's face it, I'm NOT going to be in the kitchen much tomorrow night lol) and that will be quick and easy.

    Wed night: crock pot chicken cream cheese chili

    Thurs: leftovers

    Fri: stuffed chicken breasts, salad, steamed new potatoes, green beans

    Sat/Sun : leftovers/whatever is left in the fridge/freezer.

    I haven't gotten as far as breakfast and lunch yet. But Dh won't be home during the day so all I have to do is worry about breakfast for him and I make my lunch to take to work. So mostly sandwiches and such.

    Yay me!

    I'm still planning meals by the week. DH is no help when I ask for input, so I just get what we need for a week. It's nice though!

    yeah, when DH was texting me last night I asked what he might want to eat for dinner this week... and he said frozen buffalo chicken tenders So I'm just cooking what I want. If he doesn't like it he will have to start giving me input on meals

    My mom just emailed me saying we need to do this lol.
    My stepdad does football officiating so he's not home like Mondays, Thursdays and Friday nights so if it was up to me and her we'd eat out WAY more than we should but we've both agreed we need more menu planning.
    BTW that crock pot thingy sounds super good

    Meal planning is awesome and will save you so much time and money once you get going.


    Tip: Start organizing your menus and grocery lists for those menus in a spreadsheet. Even down to what side dishes you like with main dishes, etc. Once you get a lot of that info in a spread sheet, it will really save you time creating future menus and grocery lists.
