I'm not very good at planning meals ahead of time, unless it's a recipe that I really want to try. I love the process of putting together something delicious from whatever is in the refrigerator and cupboards but I usually dream that up a few hours before the meal. This week I found myself with a very busy schedule and five nights that I would actually be at home for dinner. I decided to plan out which meals we would eat during the week. From my menu plan, I made a list and bought groceries. We live really close to the co-op where I do our shopping so it is not unusual for me to stop in there to pick things up as I need them, but not this week. It's kind of fun to have a plan and a menu on the chalk board.
Maybe this is really obvious to you. Do you plan your meals ahead of time or wing it? Which do you prefer?
