What’s Cooking

Menu Planning: do you do it? If not, why? I plan our family’s menu around my husband’s paychecks. Since he gets paid every two weeks, I only go grocery shopping every two weeks. This allows me to stay on budget and not overspend on groceries. Another great thing about menu planning is that I am not starring into a pantry and refrigerator at 5pm everyday wondering what I can piece together. I choose what we will eat each morning and pull the meat out when I wake up to thaw. This works for us and has for years. Another thing that I do is plan my grocery shopping according to the aisle set up in the store. I know row by row what I need. This cuts my time in the grocery store in half. When you are taking two little munchkins in there with you it is important to get in and get out πŸ™‚
