I had so many recipes that I liked and so many ones that I wanted to try. I finally had to realize that there were only so many days a month and I decided to try only a few new recipes a month. Our family also has favorites that we have once a month.
I loved the principles in the book but when I began to plan our meals, I realized how many simple meals that we make that would not freeze and Jon is not a huge fan of most casseroles. I also did not like cooking once a month because I love to cook.
If meal time preparation is hectic for you, I challenge you to think about planning your meals at least for two weeks and then maybe branch out to a whole month. The important thing is to find what works in your household to keep meals less stressful and less time consuming. If you have something that works, please feel free to share!
Here are a few other menu planning helps.
