Re: Mammas that set a family menu... tips?

we do one big shopping trip a week so before it i ask dh and pick out typically 5 dinner meals and another 3 lunches and then the weekly basics like eggs, tortillas etc whatever you use every week thinking about lunches and snacks, breakfast etc

I also like to have the pantry and freezer kept stocked with what are basics for us - that way i can at least throw together a soup or another fast meal

i find keeping a list of what i had planned on the fridge helps me remember what i should be making and use the ingridents in a more efficient fashion

i dont choose what nights for what though bc i like having the freedom to make what i feel like or feel like cooking or what the weather or time suggests
