Family Meal Planning

What does mealtime look like in your house? Does it involve a last minute search through the pantry and freezer, hoping for some culinary magic to produce a real meal? Or are you ordering take out because you've just given up?

What if instead, you were enjoying your family time, working on homework, or just relaxing, because you know what you will have for dinner every night and there's a good chance that it's been cooking for you all day. Sounds impossible, but with a little planning, it's totally doable.

Want to have all your meal planning done and save money at the same time? Here's all the meal planning help you need in one place!

If your family dinner is more often the first scenario, then you need to invest some time in meal planning. When you have a family, mealtime is always a little chaotic, but with careful planning you can get organized and know what you'll be serving each night. I can't make your kids eat their vegetables, but I can help you get dinner organized and on the table with a lot less stress.

The Ultimate Meal Prep Idea

I'm a big fan of freezer meals when it comes to being prepared. Imagine cooking for a couple of hours one day then having healthy, homemade meals ready to go for weeks, a month or more. If you're new to freezer meals, check out my freezer meals basics here.

And about those veggies? I do have a few recipes with hidden vegetables that my kids have loved.
