Meal Planning #5

In my four posts (hereherehere, and here) on meal planning, I am always encouraged to continue posting my meal plans in order to help give others ideas. It also helps me keep all the recipes in one place!  A lot of these are Crockpot recipes because… well, I love my Crockpot! Some of these will say x2 on them and that means I’m making it for dinner, but while I’m prepping, I’ll also be making a second set to throw in a ziplock freezer bag and freeze for easy meals to toss in the Crockpot after Skipper is born. Most of these will make more than one meal for us, so we both eat leftovers for lunches. Meal Planning

  1. We plan meals, too, but only about a week at a time (since that’s all that will fit on my dry erase board). Do you find it makes a big difference to expand the bubble?

    I know you and Huzzy will be singing the praises of your “prep x2” foresight when you’re enjoying nigh-effortless home cooking a few months down the road. What a great idea!

  2. I find it’s easier because if I don’t feel like something, I have three weeks of meals to swap with (totally needed during pregnancy!). It also helps me keep things a bit more diversified. If I only did one week at a time, I’d end up making the same meals each week. On TOP of that, I buy everything I need in one grocery trip, minus the perishable stuff, which I only buy weekly. Cuts down on my trips to the grocery store. LOL.
