We had a fast and furious week here and accomplished much, but before I dive into meal planning talk I NEED YOUR HELP!
How would you like to receive a free issue of my magazine? There are 3 spots for Molly Magazine “reviewers” available. All you need to do is review our magazine (before it is released to the public) and offer a few quotes about what you thought. You need to have a blog that you can post your thoughts to for each issue you review. If you are chosen, I will happily mention your review (and your blog!) here on Facebook and on Twitter. Interested? Email me and we’ll talk (please mention “Reviewer” in the subject line and send a link to your blog)! Email me here: email@example.com. Many thanks to my sweet readers!
Ok, on to the food talk! One thing that helps me tremendously during a busy week is having “extra” meals on hand. Do you meal plan? Does it seem overwhelming to you or do you rely on this type of planing for budgeting purposes? In the past I’ve been able to sit down and plan out a month’s worth of meals, shop for all the ingredients, prepare the meals and freeze them. It’s safe to say I am not in that season today, that’s for sure! Now days it feels like a struggle to get a week’s worth of meals planned, shopped for and prepared. To try and get ahead of myself a little bit I’m trying to make double batches of each dinner and put one away in the freezer. This is slower method than what I’ve done in the past but I’m grateful for some meals in my freezer instead of none.
If you like to be organized while you plan out your meals here’s a little help to get you started. Do you plan out your meals? What’s your favorite method?
