“How many times have you stood in front of your refrigerator at suppertime and not had a clue what you are going to feed your family? All of us struggle with preparing meals and it becomes such a chore because we don’t plan ahead. Part of FLYing is knowing “What’s for Supper!”" – FlyLady
- Set aside time each week to do your menu planning. Start by planning menus with your family’s favorites, or plan meals which use up the food in your freezer and pantry.
- Write down on your calendar what your are going to have for supper each day that week, even if you eat out. Don’t forget the side dishes.
- Put together a grocery list before you go to the market. Then, only buy what you need.
- Now, you know what is for supper for the entire week and you know you have the ingredients! Happy cooking!
Once you have established this routine using your family’s tried and true recipes, you may be ready to try some experimenting. We have some of our own family recipes to share with you. Enjoy! If you try the recipes, let us know how you liked them!
