I used to plan meals; I would actually look forward to trying new meals and recipes.
Unfortunately, that fell to the wayside a few years ago…life changes, busy schedule…all sorts of reasons (or excuses). However I’ve really missed it. I don’t like the ‘by the seat of your pants’ sort of meals rut that I’ve allowed myself to get into. It generally means that it’s never overly healthy or tasty. :S
I’ve decided I’m getting back on my meal planning bandwagon.
I have a good friend who talks about the amazing meals that she makes. I mean, she makes me want to marry her for her cooking skills.J Angela is a kitchen person. She has all the gadgets (and knows how/when to use them and she DOES use them)…the meals she talks about are incredible. She’s an inspiration.
Now perhaps my blog will also start to include some recipes, meals, etc. I’m not sure – – I did warn you that I didn’t know what direction this blog would take. Haha. Perhaps we can even share.
I am a boring menu planner : make a list of evenings, look for things I want to try, and list them…I used to always ‘plan’ an eating out night (I enjoy dining in restaurants), and now have decided to include a ‘free’ night, as I know my daughters love to do their own thing once in awhile.
How do you plan your meals? Do you ‘wing-it’, and make the best of it?
Are you talented enough to have enough groceries and menus in your house/head to create magnificent meals on a moment’s notice?
