Since giving birth to DearDaughter2 and the busy-ness that came with our home renovation it's been difficult to participate in Menu Plan Monday and I've been MIA for awhile. While my father and brother in laws were here, I didn't plan more than 2 dinners ahead because our pantry and refrigerator is just too small to stock up a week's worth of food. Our small food storage made it a difficult shopping week because I was out every other day just trying to keep our house stocked up. My DearInLaws left a week ago and things are finally settling down. I'm looking forward to participating in Menu Plan Monday again...It helps keep me accountable to planning my week and sticking to it...Oh, one change I made which affects my menu is my grocery shopping day. I used to shop for groceries on Mondays, but lately I've been doing my shopping on Fridays or Saturdays. So, my menus will start from Saturdays and end on Fridays...Another change I've made is to purchase at least 2 ready made meals so that I can have at least 2 easy cooking days without having to depend on take out. Caring for 2 children is definitely quite a challenge and since cooking has never been a strength of mine, having 2 ready made meals will make it less stressful on me.
