Get your Shopping Done Ahead of Time

It's that time of the week again. Here's a list of recipes to have at the ready so when your family wonders "what's for dinner," you won't be caught unprepared.

Get your Shopping Done Ahead of Time

If you're anything like me you need to have a plan. It doesn't matter if I'm having people over or running errands. If I don't make a plan, I wind up eating cereal for dinner. And while I'm okay with having breakfast for dinner every so often, my family, not so much. So, I've started to plan ahead.

Every Monday my son and I go to the market to do all the grocery shopping for the whole week. It takes up a couple hours, but I have everything I need so that when Friday night comes around, all I need to do is pull out the ingredients I bought earlier and make a delicious dinner without running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

I never used to plan meals ahead of time because I rarely used to be home for dinner. But now that I'm home most nights to have dinner with the family, making a plan has saved my sanity. Give it a try next week. Who knows, maybe you'll enjoy making dinner instead of loathing it.

Monday: Smokey Mac & Cheese

Tuesday: Pizza Bagels

Wednesday: General Tso's Chicken
