I'm revisiting a topic that I seem to visit at least once a year - Meal Planning.
WHY can I not get this done?
I know that if I plan I have less stress, more time and more money.
So why can't I do it on a regular bases?
In February I did a weekend of cooking and had all my meals in the freezer for the month. It was wonderful. In March I did some prep work but didn't have everything in order and then it just fell slightly apart when my husband was traveling.
I have your typical kids who are picky eaters, one of them I think could be crowned King Picky Eater. And most nights dinner is not enjoyable because I'm not ready or they don't like what I'm making or both.
So I'm back to trying to work this out into a system that will work for me and my family. I found some pins on my boards that I tagged some time ago. This one is so over the top that I know it would never work for me. This one below has a lot of potential. Cute, simple and everyone can see what's planned for the week.

Don't get me wrong I love trying new recipes and that might be a theme, but I need to simplify and satisfy.
Have you had success in meal planning? What tips can you share?
