It’s Day 3 of October’s 31 Days of Details.
It’s also the day when I plan my menus. A very important day.
I can’t even express how crucial meal-planning has been in my deslobification process. When I plan our menu, our week goes (more) smoothly.
When I don’t . . . it’s chaotic.
At least during that crazy hour between afternoon and evening, when my family expects to eat.
I know. The audacity.
Somehow, even when I don’t follow the plan exactly due to time, mood, forgetting-to-buy-a-key-ingredient, etc. it still helps to have a plan.
I think it’s the Think Ahead Factor that I tend to avoid. When I’m planning, I think about the week. Tuesday may be a PTO meeting, or Thursday may include a baseball practice. If I’ve planned, I’ve considered the kinds of meals that work best on those nights. And the chances of hitting up Little Ceaser’s are smaller.
Not gone, but smaller.
So, here’s my plan for this week.
Monday – Tacos (8yo asked if he could cook. Ummmm, yes please?)
Tuesday – Crock Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
Wednesday – Round Steak in the Crockpot (Wed. will be extra busy, so this will be nice to have ready when I come home.)
Thursday – Chicken Stir Fry
Friday – School fundraiser
Saturday – Cheeseburger Soup
