Well do you??
Why do I ask? I have been reading about all these fellow bloggers who plan their meals a week or even a month in advance. I watch TV shows about getting organised and this is something they discuss and have you ever watched the show Til' Dept do us Part?-- well she talks about meal planning and how it helps you stay on track when you budget for the grocery store and you don't end up buying stuff you won't use.
I have never done this... it almost seems foreign, both my daughters are toddlers and never have I preplanned a meal. I buy a meat source and decide that morning or the night before which of the multiple meat items we will chose from and create dinner off of that. But this seems fleeting, not to mention I am feeling bored and uninspired by the whole endeavor.
I wish this was something that I was taught in my household as a youngster... but it never was, there was no rhyme or reason on dinner. I love my mother but she can't cook for the life of her. She has 3 staples and those are all we ate, followed with an array of french fries or plain boiled rice.
I want to eat well, I want to eat on time, I want to love cooking and have fun doing so.... so here come meal plans! So I found a good food chart to go off of, a nice little formatted list something I can set the motions around here with. I hope I can become uberly domestic with this meal plan list... it doesn't the meals though... LOL! -or the grocery list for that matter. So I still have to put the work in.
But getting organised really is exciting--- at least I am feeling excited about the process!
