In an effort to be more organized (& diligent with my grocery shopping) I decided to plan out some of our meals for the week. I tried to use up some of the produce & ingredients we already in the house, stick to a budget, AND maintain a somewhat healthy menu. I can't stress enough how much easier menu planning is when life is chaotic and you're trying to find the balance!
I was pleasantly surprised to find the Food.com Menu Planning App - the perfect balance of techy + domestic goddess all wrapped into one beautiful little shopping list. It lets you add recipes + create a virtual shopping list that you can seamlessly send to your phone (allowing you to cross off items you already have).
I couldn't resist making our menu into a cute little graphic. So far it's made me more determined to stick to what we've planned for meals! You could easily create one of your own on picmonkey!
In case you're curious what I'm eating this week for dinner:
- Tortellni Tomato Spinach Soup
- Sesame Chicken
- Greek Style Turkey Burgers & Famous Greek Salad
- Sweet Corn Risotto
- Turkey Cubanos
- Broccoli & Garlic Pasta
I wanted to leave Saturday open because that tends to be our date night!
