Let's Talk About Meal Planning
I've tried so many times to do "meal planning" and somehow always seem to fail at implementation. Life gets in the way, I'm too tired to cook, etc. And it's just DH and I. So, I'm wondering what you successful meal planners are doing...
How do you track it? Scribbled on a piece of paper? Or a more organized fashion (spreadsheet, index cards, etc.) Do you give yourself room to adjust (say cook Wednesday's dinner on Monday because you're more in the mood for Wednesday now)? Or do you stick with the plan no matter what?
How far out do you plan? Do you do a week at a time? A month? Is it a rolling schedule? Or do you sit down on one specific day and plan through day "z", and then on day "x" you do it again?
Do you plan the entree only? Or do you plan all of the sides, etc. also?
What other tips do you have? Thanks!~Michelle
