orgjunkie.com is hosting a Menu Plan Monday. If you want to see what other mums are planning in their house go over to Menu Plan Monday.
If you plan a menu for your family, why not join in the fun
1. Consider the afternoon and evening activities – this affects what time I have to prepare a meal so I keep meals very simple on those days.
2. Consider if you have a cook’s helper – what can they truly help you with. Plan meals where they can do a component or if you have the time, meals that will teach them something new. This will differ for each child.
3. Consider left overs, or meals that will create left overs – plan this – and use them wisely
4. Consider what you planned and didn’t use in your last week’s menu – this means you will have the ingredients on hand
