Quite to my own surprise we are on week 3 of Nicole's Menu Planning Kick. So far, so good. I have stuck to my plans, except for a couple changes. Tonight we are doing beef stroganoff. Basically I follow Betty Crocker's recipe but just slow cook the beef since I bought some cheap stew meat.
I have decided that planning our weekday dinners doesn't make me an uber-mommy-dork. I'm just making my own life easier and making sure we eat at least two meat-free meals a week. Motherhood and SAHM-hood has taught me the power of planning ahead, although often the plans have to be tweaked. But flying by the seat of your capris doesn't often make for happy family life...at least not in our house. At least not when it comes to feeding time.
What meal time organization trick helps you the most?
