Today's edition of Try It Tuesday is about my first experience with try to do the Monthly Meal Planning/Preparation. Let me start by saying that I am aware that I probably should have started smaller. Doubling up my weekly meal plan for instance, but be that as it may, this is my experience...failures and all. After a trip to Costco to purchase 2 Fryer Chickens and 4.5 pounds of grass fed beef and a trip to Walmart to buy disposable pans. I should have known when I couldn't find the Glad Ovenware that I wanted that things were not going to go the way I wanted. Honestly, I wanted this to work so much, but it didn't go as planned. What happened? I was unprepared and life happened. On a positive note, I got to go with my future daughter-in-law to pick up her wedding dress. *insert "EEEK!" here*
Am I giving up? That would be a big old NO! I am determined to finish cooking what I need to to get us through for the next several weeks. What will I change going forward? I will definitely have my recipes put together ahead of time. I will also try to prepare my veggies and such in advance. I am determined to be successful with this monthly meal preparation. Do you meal plan/prep? Do you have any tips or tricks to share?
