I hope that this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Plan will encourage you to plan your menus in the future. I have found that when I plan my meals not only does the week seem to work better, it also helps to bring variety to our meals as well lower food costs.
If I ask my family what they want for dinner, I’ll usually get a very small list of suggestions…
… Generally something like spaghetti, meat loaf or hamburgers. I think they’d get tired of that short list really fast! So, I try to help them out.
Planning helps me combine what they want with what I know they need AND it helps me avoid going shopping again mid-week when I discover 4 or 5 things that I forgot to buy.
If I can make do with what is in my kitchen, I’m happier, but having everything that I need is much better. A good plan helps me do that; and do it well! 😉
