I MUST, MUST, MUST get back into the habit of menu planning. I made a loose plan for this past week and then decided I didn’t feel like cooking what I’d planned. I made something else and just threw the whole thing into a tizzy! I didn’t plan anything for the weekend either. That made things a little stressful at dinnertime Saturday and Sunday. So I’m going to do a full-blown menu plan – and stick with it – for this week.
This one’s easy. My parents have invited us to go out to dinner with them. No cooking involved…. Yay!
BBQ Chicken, Corn on the Cob, Fresh Veggie Plate
Broiled Fish, Wild Rice, Broccoli
BBQ Chicken Salads
Italian Stuffed Shells
Southwestern Chicken Wraps
That should do it. Now the key is sticking to the plan! I’ve chosen meals that are quick and easy, so I don’t mind making them. My husband has offered to help with more of the cooking, and I think I’m going to take him up on that offer. So motivation shouldn’t be quite the problem that it has been.
Your Turn: Do you have trouble staying motivated to make dinner for your family? How do you re-motivate yourself?
