Meal Planning: What is your strategy?
Two of my kids are in baseball this spring and with practices and games at least three evenings a week, it is clear I need to step up my meal planning game. The most stressful part of my day is coming home from work and cooking dinner as three hungry boys forage and constantly remind me that they are hungry. If I am prepared, I can give dinner on the table in 20 minutes. More often than not, I am scrambling. It's not pretty and I scramble to throw something together that's available from what we have on hand. My go to meal is pasta with a quick and easy tomato sauce.
Feeding the family is favorite topic on urbanMamas, we've talked about meal planning loosely especially as it relates to Sunday night stress, running a tight ship, and recently about how much does dinner cost but I am in need of specific ideas and to compare notes on strategies to make meal planning an integral part of the family routine. Do you plan meals? Do you plan by the week, two weeks, a month?
