~ Planning Meals ~
We are called to be keepers of the home! And part of that means planning meals for the family. Now many family's are just able to garb something to go. But we eat Kosher and there is only one place here in town we can eat at. And feeding a family of 7 adds up very fast. So grabbing food to go is only a once a month thing.
I know a lot of family's that plan meals for a month but that has never worked very well for my family. So here is what I like to do!
I grab a note pad and some of my favorite Sharpies. I love using pretty colors so here are some of my Sharpies that I like to use.
These are some of my old menus I like to pull them out and go over. It helps me get an ideal what I can make for the next 2 weeks. I will tell you my meals are not fancy. I try and make our meals less then $10 each. I want these meals to be yummy but affordable to feed my large family.
I plan our meals different then I believe most women do. I look at what I want to make for the next 2 weeks but I don't assign them to a certain day. Sometimes I don't want that meal or we are too busy and I don't have time to make what I had planned on. I like putting our meals on a note pad. It has room for me to put all 14 days on it.
After putting all the meals down we would like for the next 2 weeks
I like to decorate it. When I am done with it I just pull out the sheet and
put it on the frig.
And then when the kids ask what's for dinner I tell them to look at the menu and find something yummy we can eat!
