Thursday Thoughts, January 24th

Happy Thursday a/k/a Friday eve friends!  How's your week going?  So far so good for mine.  I've had several blue dot days this week and I'm proud of that.  I know meal planning and meal prepping can be a bit daunting, but I am really figuring out how beneficial it can be.  At the present time, I only meal plan for a week at a time.  Usually I have ideas in my head for a second week, but I don't usually write those down.  I keep seeing folks posting that they plan for a month at a time.  I am not sure I am quite ready for that yet, but I think I may try to go for 2 weeks, at least.  With everyone's schedule being so crazy, I think it's really going to be even more important that I plan for our meals.  My great hope is to take President's Day to prepare some freezer meals so that we are even more prepared for February and March.  I am compiling recipes now to do just that.  My primary focus is to choose meals that I know my family will enjoy that I can make work for us because we do have to accommodate some food allergies as well.  To that end, I've been scouring Pinterest and YouTube to find things that I think we will like.  I recently tried one that will make a good freezer meal called Lazy Man Lasagna and it was a hit.  How do you prepare yourself for success?

  1. I don't know what I want for dinner tonight, let alone a month from now! Anyone who can plan meals a month in advance have my utmost respect!
