Meal Planning Day 2

Ok, so you've done your pantry inventory, printed out your "MASTER LISTS" and are ready for the next step.

Think about meals that make a regular appearance at your dinner table. As your kids and your husband what their favorite meals are. Look through this website, cookbooks you have, interest - anywhere for ideas and options.

Then, write them down and group them into groups. You may group them like: Italian, French, American, Chinese, etc. but I decided to group mine like this: Beef, Chicken, Pork, Seafood & Vegetarian. I chose to do that b/c I like variety and I want to make sure as I meal plan that we aren't having ground beef every night.

Another awesome resource for meal planning is AllRecipes This website allows you to list ingredients you already have and they give you several recipes you can use those foods in.

Here's my list. I linked all the recipes I'm using that are on this site. I was seriously shocked to look up several of the meals that are regulars around here - only to find out that I've never posted them! I've been keeping them all to myself. Much to catch up on...

I'm not going to print and laminate this list because as the meal planning goes, I'm sure I'll be making changes to this list...
