Meal Planning 2016 - Week 40
This week, I don't know if I'm coming or going. Thank heavens this is a rarity for us, I know many of you struggle with this level of busy on a regular basis - I do not know how you do it! I keep telling myself I can get through it. All I need to do is keep organized.
A big part of that organization is keeping a weekly meal plan. Even on weeks when we are running around, or just having simple meals, it makes me feel more in control, to have a plan. I know what I need to prep ahead of time, and I know how much time I have for other things, between work and dinner, when I know what I'm making for dinner.
Here's what we have planned for this week:
Monday - Holiday - Family Dinner Out
Tuesday - Date Night for Mom and Dad, Pizza for kiddos
Wednesday - Birthday Dinner Out with Mimi and Pop-pop
Thursday - Family Wedding - Delicious food I don't have to cook!
Friday - Soup and Sandwiches (since Pizza Night was Tuesday!)
Saturday - School Fundraiser - Food Truck Festival
Sunday - Pasta and Meatballs, Salad and Garlic Bread (old school Sunday Family Dinner)
What is for dinner at your house this week? How do you meal plan around a super busy week? I'd love you to leave your best tips here, or better yet, join our discussion over on Facebook to talk all things meal planning.
