Do you menu plan?
As a busy mum, I find that I have no choice… if I don’t plan my menus for the week, I have hell to pay: I get to 5pm and the children all start saying: “I’m hungry”, and then: “What are we eating tonight?”… by 5 pm, I’ve usually been up for nearly 12 hours, and the last thing I want to be doing is think of what on earth I can cook that is fast, healthy and that everybody likes!
So, once a week, I sit down and I plan the menus for the week. Honestly, I cook the same stuff over and over again. My menu plans are not incredibly creative, but they keep me sane and the family well fed 🙂
I have a list of “meals that work well”, so that on those days where I’m uninspired, I can just find ideas easily. On my list are, amongst others, the usual classics… lasagna, spaghetti bolonese, shepherd’s pie… and pizza, of course! Gluten free pizza is on the menu plan for almost every Friday – it’s a tradition!
Today, on our menu plan, we have “vegetable lasagna” – a recipe I must post on this site soon.
What’s on your menu plan? Come and tell me all about it on the Easy and Gluten Free Facebook page! See you there!
