Monster Squad Meal Planning – A new begining!

Menu Planning. I swear by it.

When I don’t plan meals, we eat rubbish, spend a lot more money and waste a massive amount of time each evening arguing over what we are going to eat.

The last few weeks in our chaotic life has been without planning and I definitely noticed the difference. The problem was that I just kept running out of time each day to sit down and plan my meals and a shopping list so the menu just kept getting put off until “tomorrow”…..

However, tomorrow never comes.

Potato Bake with Bacon!

So without further ado, I am putting life on hold this evening and sitting down to plan my menu for this week.

I am planning on typing up my menu each week for the next 6 weeks or so, so that I can reuse and rotate each menu when time is tight and I need to create a menu quickly.

My menu’s start on a Thursday as this is the day I do my shopping.
