I love to cook.
But what I hate it think of what to cook.
Especially when Little Boy refuses to eat most of what I make.
What I need is an easy way to simplify meal planning. So to save my sanity and my family, I created a quick and easy cheat sheet of dinners we like.
Main Meals are divided by the type of meat needed to cook the dish.
The meat categories are:
- No meat
To think of all the choices, I sat down with my best cookbooks and reviewed my Pinterest boards. Then I asked Honey to look it over. He is the main meat cooker so he was able to add a few options. Finally I asked the boys what their favorite dinners are.
Since we are tailgate in the fall and pretty much party year round (holidays, couple’s parties, Mom Night In), I really should add a munchie/appetizer section.
I use our list to meal plan and make the grocery list.
This simple printed list has saved me on many nights. So take a few minutes and make your family’s list of meals.
Because one Tuesday night in the near future you will be standing in front of your refrigerator wonder what the heck to cook for dinner.
I love to share my projects with these fabulous blogs:
