You guys are so smart. And you’re generous enough to share your ideas with me. I’m blessed, blessed, blessed. When I posted a couple of weeks ago about de-stressing the menu plan, some of you left comments or emailed with some great advice. Susan mentioned giving herself a 15 minute time limit for menu planning when things get crazy. Linda encouraged me use the tried and true first, paying attention to what’s in the pantry. Great advice!
I’m going to use that advice to keep things simple this week too. It’s working so far!
