I read several blogs where wonderfully organized Moms plan out months worth of meals at a time. I am always envious of this process. I love to sit down with my cook books and shake myself out of cooking ruts. I just never seem to find the time to sit long enough to plan for longer lengths of time.
That is, until now. Abby gave me a beautiful calendar on her last day of school filled with pictures of her. Since I have a giant family calendar that is already in full swing I decided this would be perfect for monthly meal planning. So away we go:
I am trying a color coded system with green for days I don't have to cook a full meal, pink for meals that are pre-done in the freezer, blue for meals that I have to make at dinner time and black for meals I can cook in the crock pot. I am not 100% sure how this process will work for us since our schedule often changes during the summer. I guess we shall see!
