Monday Meal Planning is going down today! Two weeks ago, I did a trial run of meal planning and not only did it save me a ton of cash, I felt organized and all dinner plans were entirely stress free. You know the feeling. It’s 4:30, baby is grouchy, needs a bath, bottle and dry diaper. Husband walks in the door, tired from work. You never got that shower you wanted to have and still have ten things you want to accomplish before you pass out from exhaustion after the babe goes to bed. Oh and you need to make a healthy dinner for you and your husband so that he thinks you can be the stay at home mum you claim you were destined to be. THOSE kind of days! Well I didn’t have a single one of those days thanks to my meal plan. Okay there were still days where a shower and make-up never happened and the baby still had her grizzly hour of meltdowns on some afternoons. BUT dinners were a dream! That being said, I am super excited for round two, beginning tomorrow. Here are the details on my menu planning for fourteen days and I will be sure to get some recipes up from the successful ones. What’s going on in your kitchen this week?
Tuesday – Homemade Pizza with a bbq/chipoltle base, variety of specialty salamis, sliced bell peppers, mozzarella and gruyere grated cheese.
Wednesday – Pulled Pork Carnitas (One look at Pinterest and you will crave them as well!)
