menus and meals for order...
menus and meals for order in my life. since becoming a mom there seems to be so little i can control these days especially with a very outspoken 3 yr old. for an admitted semi-control freak like myself its a little bit of torture each day however i still wouldn't change a thing.
over here at littlefoodie household we have a very large grocery bill. most of the food we eat is from home and homemade..meaning i make like 3 meals a day almost everyday. i've never been into the meal planning thing until i realized that perhaps i could spend less time and energy each day planning a half hearted meal and instead be prepared and littlefoodie and i can enjoy what were cooking.
since summer i have been cooking maybe 4-5 days out of the week. we have a little dinner rotation going with a couple friends so i do dinner one day and then i have dinner coming for 2 days. also, bigfoodie daddy works a lot of horrible and family stealing overtime and sometimes its not ideal to cook for myself and my screaming sweet banshee.
so in a effort for organization here are 9 meals that we will be enjoying for the next 2 weeks. 4 of those nights we'll have wamr yummy meals delivered to us by friends and another few nights its usally something very simple like quick pasta or cereal if we've been busy all day. of course, the recipes will be posted as they are made!
