Menu Planning : 3in30 goal


Menu Planning

I wanted to set a menu up for a whole month. This would make my shopping trips and cooking go a lot smoother. Also helping anyone who has to take over that task if i am not home that day. This month i wanted to switch up, so i grabbed ever dinner from one of these cooking resources. For the most part that means it will be something new for my family to try. I filled in our favorite breakfast and lunches and of course desserts (another 3in30 goal) to complete each day.

This will be an on going goal, that i will have to set time aside for each month. As of now i have two complete weeks with 3 meals and a dessert. I am still filling in the lunches for a few days and as well making my shopping list for the weeks to best us. I hope to make shopping a fun activity for me and my oldest two girls. I plan to make mini list for them to fill their own carts. If we set a goal we can accomplish it!

When menu planning, pick meals that your family will eat. When i plan i like to make meals i know my family will enjoy, that are price efficient, and easy to put together. I try to "make over" what ever left overs that i can for the next days lunch. If possible i also try to do the same for the next nights dinner. Not only a money saver but as well a time saver. Enjoy your menu planning.
