If you have time, peek over at my blog and under categories "food" I have several recipes. I started meal-planning after learning about it on the Organizing Junkie blog. Good luck!
Good question! Can't wait to see some new ideas, as if the internet is not full of recipes and like we don't have any cookbooks!
What did you end up getting at the store? Milk, bread, cereal, turkey, chips, chicken, ground meat, salad, apples, and grapes?
I have been trying to organize get organized when it comes to meal preparation.I went to the weight watchers site and printed out some tasty looking meals I hope the kids would enjoy also. I'll let you know what's good after I try them this week.Alos, any chance you are selling those adorable football shirts? I'd love a long sleeve for my daughter (and me too)? Our colors are red/black.Thanks,Sue

I have been to the store three times since Friday!?! Anyway, I bought a pork roast, trimmed the fat, put it in the crockpot and mixed up a McCormick Seasoning Pack "Pulled BBQ Pork". We had this for Labor Day with corn on the cob, baked beans, & cole slaw. Super easy and very delicious.
Go over to Cooking Light and search for Spaghetti Pie. Its fabulous. Even my 2 picky eaters can't get enough of it, and its easy!!
Let us know what you come up with. I was just thinking that I needed to start planning my meals ahead of time.
The best thing I do is plan the week out on Sunday afternoon. I make out the menu, after looking at everyone's schedule, go to the grocery store, and cook something Sunday afternoon. I put the menu on the frig. It's such a relief to have a plan for the week. Making one dish on Sunday afternoon (chili, soup, etc.) helps the most on a busy night. I also use the crock pot every now and then. If all else fails, it's Tijuana's time! :-) With our busy lives, it's the only way I can survive.
hee,hee. I just noticed your poll! Too funny.
I'm a little late with my input... Like Kricket, I love Cooking Light. The recipes are delicious, healthy and pretty easy. Since I work full-time, I also rely heavily on crock pot recipes and there are lots of cook crock pot cookbooks out there. One thing everyone at my house loves are "sloppy joes"...brown ground sirloin and add a can of Chicken Gumbo soup. We are also big fans of Morningstar Blackbean Burgers. I baked them for 20 min. in the oven and serve with a salad. Good luck!
Crock pot cooking is a life saver! One of my favorite meals is this:put boneless skinless chicken breasts in crock pot (I use frozen), press in a few cloves of garlic (the more the better)... pour a jar of prego spag sauce and a can of italian diced tomatoes over it and add some italian spices. Cook on low all day or on high for 4-6 hours. We had this tonight with whole wheat linguine, yum! I added in some sun dried tomatoes and fresh parmigian cheese.
Sounds good annie!
Martha Steward Food is the best- it is all simple every day ingredients for real life- healthy and uses easy pictures to glance at teh recipe and get it- its always seasonal and has leftovers- snacks- lunch box suggestions and is organized with a meal planner flow chart in the back of the recipes in the issue.I plan menus each week on Sunday with my coffee in the morning- I use the similar ingredients and dont really follow recipes as much a do healthy quick combos-this way I dont have to buy a million ingredients that I waste later for one recipe- I keep fave recipes in a baset with magazine tear outs and the Food issues- I go through those and make a list- and then wrinte the recipes and pages on top of the list - then I post it on the fridge for the week. Let us know what you make/ find.
