Menu planning for me has been a rotating process. In the past I have preferred making a simple list of 14 dinners. I would purchase all the ingredients needed for them and then choose each day what I felt like cooking. This worked well for many years. Times change however and new ideas come about.
I am working at a GREAT preschool which I love and enjoy so much. However, working limits the time I have to spend in the kitchen preparing meals. My youngest child is a senior in high school and as he is home from work before I am, he does the cooking on Tuesdays and Thursdays when we have evening activities. This is great for him and great for me! He is learning to cook in a variety of ways and I have two days a week I come home to a nice meal.
I now plan my menu and shopping by the week and assign a day for each recipe. A friend introduced me to an app that has simplified and streamlined the way I organize recipes, meal plan and grocery shop. I LOVE it! The app is called Paprika. Check out their website. I will be posting a review with more information soon!
I’ve decided to share with you my weekly meals with links to original recipes. Then the following week I will give you my rating of each recipe. This weeks recipes are a mix of “tried and true” and “new to me”. Let me know if you try any of these recipes and if you liked them!
