As a mother, I've come to love having a repertoire of simple easy go to meals. Richard and I sit down the night before we go grocery shopping and plan out the weeks meals. That way we aren't having to stop at the store to pick up stuff andddd there's less stress over what to have each night. We plan out week and weekend meals. Anything that's more time intense we do on the weekend. I also try to make things that will create leftovers. That way if things get crazy I can always use a "heat and eat meal"
This week we have planned:
Monday-- Italian Stoup Sauce over spaghetti
Tuesday-- Meatball subs
Week day 3-- Salsa chicken over cous cous
Week day 4--American Chop Suey (leftovers)
Friday-- dinner from the grocery store
We typically have some kind of Mexican, Itaian and comfort food each week.
So, who else plans their meals ahead of time? What is your favorite go-to meal? Do you cook so there are leftovers?
