I’ve been menu planning since baggy jeans were in style. Yes, my friends, I’ve been at this gig a long, long time.
But at the beginning of my marriage, I didn’t do any meal planning.
I also didn’t go much cooking.
Or dusting or vacuuming.
Ahhh….those were the days….
I suppose it was after we had a kid and started spending more time at home that I began to plan our meals each week. We didn’t have any extra money to spare, and I needed to know the exact items to buy at the store so I didn’t waste a single penny.
Well, it’s eighty-three years later (give or take a few years), and I’m still planning. There are lots of reasons why I menu plan, and it has become one of the most valuable tasks I do.
My “system” for menu planning is pretty basic. I don’t want you to think this is a long, drawn out process of jumping through the right hoops every week. It only takes a few minutes each time, and the more you do it, the easier it will become.
