4 simple steps to fast family meal planning!07:00:00
If you are anything like me you'll stare at the fridge every night hopelessly wondering what to cook for dinner! It's an endless task of shopping, preparing and cooking which gets very boring.
So I went to Wilko's to pick up a Meal Planner (Available Here), sat down with my pen and got planning. Here is how I create tasty menus each week that are not repeating and are simple to do!
I order my shopping online so always keep a copy of my ASDA receipt (If you order in store your usual receipt will work the same), I grab this along with last weeks meal plan (a rough list of what you like to eat will help the first week), the new meal plan page and a pen.
I go through the shopping list underlining the main components of meals (Tortellini, Salmon, Mince for Burgers, Salad). As we don't always use everything in our fridge I will add it to the shopping list by writing some of the things that we have left and also note whether people are coming round. (Right of the list Paella, Friends and Macaroni Cheese)
