What’s for dinner? Meal Planning!
It isn’t that I don’t have time to cook…. I just don’t like doing it. In fact I kind of stuck at it. Bake I can, cook, I burn. Now hubby being the better cook sadly has long and varied hours at work. So this year I decided since I was tired of the nightly “debate” I would take matters into my own hands and start meal planning. *GASP* Yup, I would suck it up and learn to cook, not from boxes but COOK.
I got a calendar, I came up with ideas, and I went shopping. I looked for dinner ideas that used common ingredients (to cut down on costs), that even I could pull off and that I could freeze. Why? Well because why cook the same meal twice!! If I had to cook in order to restore calm, then as bad as I was at it, I wanted to do it as little as possible!! That’s right, I started with things I (or hubby on the weekends) could make double batches of and freeze. This way we had meals for a few weeks at a time.
