After a very busy December, this month has pretty much been routine. I find comfort in the familiar, so it's been nice for me. Meal planning is one of the routine things I enjoy doing. I don't enjoy scrambling around at the last minute, wondering what to fix for dinner. It gives me a sense of security, knowing that I have the ingredients on hand to make the meals I've planned.
That said, sometimes my meals don't go as planned - we decide to invite people over and switch up the menu or we get held up doing something else and I can't fix what was scheduled for that day. Flexibility is part of the plan, though! If you're not a meal planner, try it and see how less complicated your life can be!
So, here's what I've got planned for this - subject to change, of course!
Italian sausage sandwiches, fries
Chicken chili, cornbread
Beefy Spanish rice, broccoli
Spaghetti and meatballs
Scalloped potatoes with ham, green beans
Hamburgers, creamy mac and cheese
Crockpot sesame honey chicken, rice
