Meal planning is great for anyone with a busy schedule, a tight budget, or a picky family. If you plan your meals ahead of time, then you won't be stuck at 5:00 staring in the refrigerator/freezer/pantry, trying to throw something together and "hope" that your family will eat it. Don't get me wrong, I've been there, done that (some of my concoctions even turned into favorites), but it's frustrating and stressful, so I like to avoid it. If you know ahead of time what you are making for dinner each day, you know what you need to buy at the store (you can even base your meal plan around this week's sales), you know what you need to take out of the freezer the night before, and you know exactly how long dinner will take to make. It is so much easier! Once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder why you never did it before.
So, here is my meal plan for this week...
Monday: Crockpot Chicken
Tuesday: Sloppy Joe's
Wednesday: Chicken Shepherd's Pie
Friday: Beef Stroganoff
Saturday: Turkey Burgers
