Robyn has been consulting with a food lady. One great suggestion I am going to put into place is menuing. Ness has menu's. I remember the blackboard. We never have. Every day is the question..What's for dinner?
You can but stuff on SALE, stock up and save on groceries rather than buying every day...Much easier to do now that the kids are older.
Rob's lady says to write down all the types of meat, then simply put THAT on the calendar to start with.
Chicken, beef, Pork, pasta, Turkey, Ham, Then..What about Casseroles? What about Soups?
Chicken: Baked Chicken, Chicken legs, Chicken with rice, Chicken Strips, Chicken Kievs
Beef: Burgers, Burritos, Chuck Roast, Barbeque Beef, Steaks, Meatloaf, Meatballs,
Ham: I don't think I've ever baked a whole ham. I use Turkey Ham for Sandwiches while on road trips. We use sliced ham for lunches. But a whole ham? Wierd..just haven't done it.
SOUP: Turkey Noodle, White Bean Chicken Chili, Tomato, Don Potato, Regular Chili
Pasta: Spaghetti, Alfredo, Manicotti, Lasagna, Mac and Cheese,
Salads: Big Salad, Taco Salad, Coleslaw
Potatoes: Baked, Scalloped, Mashed, Cut up-Microwaved then baked, French Fries, Tater Tots, twice baked,
Pizza: Regular, English Muffin Pizzas, Chicken W/Peanut Sauce, Black Bean Pizza,
Any other ideas?
