For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Menu planning

With my husband being sick and therefore at home for the past few months, he took charge of the menu planning. This has been working quite nicely. He will make a menu for 2-3 weeks in advance, and I love that I do not have to worry about that. We love menu planning at our house, but I never actually liked sitting down to do it. I hope he will keep doing this once he returns to work.
Menu planning really helps in saving you time and grocery, as you have an idea in advance of what you need or not need. Plus it totally cuts out the stress of wondering what's for tomorrow, or  worse, what's for dinner.
The next step would be this once-a-month cooking thing as I can see the benefits of it, especially time wise. But i just can't get around the idea of having just a few options of meals. I like variety, something different everyday for at least 2 weeks, with the occasional once a week leftovers day. Plus, we have no freezer space. In any case may be one day, when the kids are older and i have no time for daily cooking, I'll turn to it.

Have a great day, Joelle
