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

I made a list of foods I knew I could cook without a recipe. And I try to have the necessary ingredients for various ones (not all Italian, or all chicken).

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

And sometimes I do double the recipe so I can ...freeze... and have to cook less.
that too.

I need to get better about knowing what I have on hand, so I can better choose what to make tonight. It's hard these days, because I'm pregnant and am having a hard time cooking (meat, spicy, and acidic foods).
