My meal planning goals:
- One grocery trip per week to cut down on impulse purchases & because it’s no walk in the park to go to the grocery with a nine month old.
- Cook no more than three times per week. Each cooking day should yield enough food to make two meals for each of us.
- Delicious, easy meals that can be cooked in less than 30 minutes OR have components which can be prepped ahead of time (i.e. during the Pie’s naptime) & then be cooked in less than 30 minutes.
Meal Plan: Week of October 7, 2012
