Step 2 – divide your days

The next part of the planning it to get into a routine. 

Our routine is that we go out once a week and we try to limit drive-thru stops to twice a week.  That leaves four days of cooking.

Two of those days still have to be quick meals or something people can eat at different times and two of those days are sit-down family dinners.

Start to plan a grocery list (in your head, just when you’re driving and thinking about it).  Don’t worry about writing anything down yet.

You are really only going to need 8 meals that your family eats well – 2 a week for a month and then you start over.

The next post will teach you how to take all of this thought and really make that grocery list and start making a change in your habits.

Waffle Wednesday

Summer is here.  

There are the most obvious signs – it’s much louder around here than normal and I’m making trips to the grocery store every other day.  

Usually there is the hot weather – but that isn’t cooperating.  So, it kinda feels like an extended spring break.  

But, the best way to tell that it’s summer is because I have NO IDEA what day of the week it is, let alone the DATE!  Honestly, it could as easily be the 16th or the 26th, as the 6th of June.

The ONLY way for me to keep track of the day of the week is by following the breakfast pattern.  During the school year, we have a set routine.  

Monday – Pancakes

Tuesday – You’re on your own – Mom has coffee group

Waffle Wednesday

Thursday – cinnamon rolls and scrambled eggs

French Toast Friday

Saturday – this is the only day that changes

Sunday – sausage with biscuits and gravy

As long as I keep to this morning routine, I’ll be able to keep track of what day it is.

Here’s what I’ve learned:  Today was Wednesday.  We had waffles.
