You know what I do every Sunday afternoon? As soon as my daughter goes down for her nap, I whip out all of my recipe books, slouch as hopelessly as I can on the couch next to my husband, groan loudly, and complain that I don’t know how to cook anything. What do we even eat?
It takes me until Tiny is about 15 minutes away from waking up to finish my complaining ritual, but then the pressure is on and I somehow come up with 4-7 recipes and a corresponding grocery list for the week hoping that everything will work out okay.
There has to be a better way.
In the past, I have taken my weekly meal plans and shoved them all haphazardly into an envelope:
I’m not about to count that mess, but let’s just say there are lots. Some are garbage, others are good. But go me for making that many meal plans, right???
The purpose of this blog is twofold:
- I want to organize my meal plans in a more accessible way so that I can easily pull up a week’s worth of meals and also have easy access to the recipes that correspond for my own benefit.
- I want to create something that can help other individuals/couples/moms/dads in the area of meal planning. It is HARD to come up with a menu. It is HARD to find meals that will spark joy. It is HARD to maintain variety and balance.
My hope is that this blog can fulfill both purposes. I love a challenge and I love a project, so here goes nothing!
