I love setting goals and creating new projects for myself, if you haven’t noticed. Now that the grad party is over and there’s no more planning involved as far as that goes, I can turn my attention to something else.
Sam and I have been trying not to eat out as much as we do. 1) to save money and 2) to lose weight and get healthy. I’m not the best cook. I’ll be the first to let you know and I’m sure Sam will be the second – haha!.. I come from a family of really awesome women that can cook their booties off but I guess I never paid attention enough and I definitely regret that now. I really want to get into meal planning and learning new recipes. And when I say “new recipes” I mean ANY recipes at all. Unless we’re talking about grilled cheese. I can make a mean grilled cheese. Anyways, I purchased a few magnetic notepads on Friday that I think will help me stay organized while I try and figure everything out.
The plain notepad on the side is for any food items or whatever that I need to pick up from the store and the notepad on the right side is for our meal planning. This way we can plan and decide what we’re having from week-to-week.
I need help, though! Gimme some tips, tell me some tricks, send me some recipes, or whatever you got! Help ya girl out, people!
Happy Sunday! Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Happy Sunday to you too! wish you luck with planning the items you want to eat in the week! 🙂 sorry don’t have any tricks about food planning! 🙂
Start with simple meals and make sure the cooking time works with your schedule! I tend to have a crazy schedule during the week and I hate to cook! I always have a “back up” quick dinner on hand that I can make in 15 minutes or less for those nights when life takes over my schedule!
