Okay, now I need to ask do you find yourself making the same meals over and over and over?
It seems like I get in a rut and fix the same foods on a rotating scale.
Granted I have picky eaters in my family but not that picky. I decided to do something about it.
I had my daughter give me ideas too for her favorite meal choices and side dishes. She did a good job of coming up with things I hadn’t even made in a long time. I found that asking her when she was hungry seemed to help her creative juices come up with more ideas.
Now each week I have my little notebook of meal ideas and I decide on 8 of them and go shopping for the ingredients to make them. I then make a list and put it on the board of the 8 different menu choices and cross them off as I make them.
I find I don’t dread cooking supper nearly as much, I have eliminated the quick run to the grocery store before making supper, and have made my life much simpler when it comes to cooking supper.
