Weekly meal plan and grocery list


20150104_122544 20150104_122803

One idea many people have noticed when they are in my kitchen, is the weekly menu on my fridge, from which I make my weekly grocery list.

I have collected favourite recipes and keep them in labelled files (dinner favourites, slow cooker meals, meatless Monday’s, etc.) , along with my cookbooks.  I sit down at the beginning of the week and make a menu, then grocery list based on these planned meals.  If you can plan and organize ahead, it will save you over-buying in the grocery store, buying unnecessary items, and buying overly-processed foods.  I am not a chef or anything, but I have lots of great recipes and websites that I use that are simple, tasty, and don’t have too many ingredients, or anything too exotic or difficult to find in your average grocery store.

There is nothing better than getting home at the end of the day and not having to figure out what food you have in the house and then have to figure out what to make for dinner that night!  I used to dread about 3 pm every day when I would think “uuuhhhhh, what do I have in the freezer and can thaw for dinner tonight?”  Now, all I do is look at the menu the day before or the morning of and take whatever needs to be taken out of the freezer out to defrost, and then make-it later.

Try it today!
