So, it’s grocery day! I love going grocery shopping, I really do but I can never figure out what to put on my list. I’ve played around with the idea of meal planning but I think there’s something important I must be missing because I just don’t get it.
What I did before:
- Look for recipes I thought my family would enjoy.
- Choose a recipe for each day.
- Buy the ingredients for everything.
- (NOT) Cook everything as planned
That last part seems the easiest but I just never could seem to cook what I had planned. If I planned to make spaghetti, undoubtedly, the kids (and hubby, too!) wanted tacos – EVERY time! At least that’s what it felt like…
I’d like to try again but I need some tips. Anyone here experienced with meal planning? How did you make it work?
