Menu Planning.

In order for me to feel like I am a good mom and wife I try and cook dinner every night. (because we think we have to eat every night.) Seems pretty simple. WRONG. Maybe I am the only one that has this issue, but just like going to the store, my brain comes up short when it is time for dinner. Unless it is screaming at me or it is planned, I really have no idea what we are having for dinner. Then I am lost. When this happens we have cereal for dinner...True Story.
When I decided to stay home I needed an easy way to plan for dinners, without it taking me hours upon hours to plan. --It has taken me up to 5 hours to meal plan before--I over complicate EVERYTHING.

So I made a template.
Tuesday--Toss it!
Oh the possibilities are endless, however, this gives me a great foundation to meal plan. Also its helpful so I don't have pasta three times in one week, or chicken more than one time a week. Gives me variety and is easy if I have to make a run to the grocery store without a list.
 (I don't recommend it)
This was brilliant on my part. I don't have many brilliant moments, but I think this one is my favorite.
Here are a few printables I use to help me out.


These are not my originals. They have the owners name on them. These are just the ones I use. xoxo enjoy.
