Weekly Meal Plans

I don't know about you, but I'm always a mess in the kitchen trying to re-find the recipes online or wherever that I found earlier in the week to cook! I have recipes in cookbooks, saved on my computer and phone, pinterest, etc...It has taken me this long to get organized about it.  I have started to make a weekly meal plan on a word document with the weeks ingredients and recipes in the order of when I will be cooking them.  That way I can just pull up or print out one document for that whole weeks worth of recipes.  The best part about this is that weeks meals are saved on your computer and they are already there for another whole week down the road, so the work is already done!  You can go even further with this and make a grocery list at the bottom of the document by copy/pasting all of the ingredients from that weeks recipes.  I am probably the last person to think of this, I know.  But it is a revelation that is going to seriously help me out in the future and thought I would share :o)

  1. This is a really good idea! I try to do the same! I also just try to keep the basics in my kitchen at all times, frozen fruits, veggies, meat of every kind. Then I dont have to go grocery shopping everyday and I always have something to throw together. haha! Thanks for putting my blog on your page! I love your blog!
