I”m not very good at menu planning for an entire week. I find that I actually spend more money then if I shop for just a couple of days at a time. Otherwise there”s always something that ends up rotting away in the fridge, or our meals are not as rounded and healthful as they could be.
When I plan for only a couple of dinners at a time I”m able to keep things more simple and I find it a lot less stressful. When I have my act together it”s a lot easier to plan ahead for some two for one meals, as well.
“What does it mean to make a two-for-one meal? Simple. For each meal you make earlier in the week, you make extra of one item to cut prep time for a completely different meal later in the week.”
This is the way I menu plan.
