My cherry tree all in bloom today...80 degs out with blue skies..I luv it!
So 2 years ago I said to self..."self...this isn't working and you are giving yourself a migraine over it, how can you change it?" and my self ACTUALLY listened LOL! Meal planning was the answer...yeah its not a new concept...I'm not gonna WOW you with magic or anything like that. I try to be as organized as I can be and disciplined about things in the house. Since I work from home you have to be disciplined in order to get everything done. So I just translated that over to my meal planning as well and it MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!
So what do I do? I have a pretty binder (just got this new fabby binder in January from Staples) that has meal planning print-outs (mine came from here) that I print and then have the hubby run a bunch off at his work for me. And YES I fill it out every week....do I ALWAYS stick exactly to the plan? NO! Well does life slip up and change moment by moment...duhhhh...yeah LOL! But it gives me a good system in place to work with and keeps my stress low which is always a GOOD thing KWIM!
So there you go...that's how I make my week a little less stressful and easy going. Having a plan can change how you use your time during the day and cause less headaches in the end. It MAY look like a lot of work but if you can take 20-30 mins on the weekend to create a menu plan for the following week...I PROMISE you its worth it!!
What's for dinner tonight? Oven fried chicken, cauliflower smash and roasted red potatoes :)
