Weekly Meal Plan #80

In the last few months, I have been using a dry erase board to keep a running list of meals to make during the course of the week, with an abbreviated evening schedule for the week so that I remember what commitments we need to fit dinner around. It was working really well!

And then, this week, I just completely stopped doing the essential part:  deciding the night before what I would make for the next night’s dinner and checking out the activity schedule so I’d know exactly when I had time to prep. And guess what? All week, our dinners consisted of things thrown together at the last minute that required next-to-no prep time. I blame the fact that everyone is so tired at the end of  the school year and so exhausted from all the end-of-year activities…but really, I just need to put in that extra five minutes the night before so that I don’t have to rush the next day. Here’s to doing better next week.
