Hey friends – let me help you out by being a cautionary tale…

Last week Roger and I were out of town at a conference. As you know, I plan my meals in advance, but we got home on Monday and I didn’t feel like going to the store, so I figured, “Hey, it won’t kill us to eat out one night…” Well one night turned into four. All because I didn’t feel like going to the store.

Why didn’t I want to go to the store? Because although I made the meal plan, I didn’t make my shopping list. That’s where the plan went horribly wrong.

So, in order to save those hours, (and dollars) do two things:

1. Make your meal plan (and share it here so you have some good peer pressure…)

Here is mine if you need a little inspiration:

Monday – Whole Roasted Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Roasted Vegetables

Tuesday – Chili, Salad, Corn Bread

Wednesday – Steak, Veggie and Brown Rice Bowls

Thursday -Whole Wheat and Brown Rice Bean and Chicken Burritos

Friday – Whole Wheat Pita Pizzas

Saturday – Every Man For Himself

Sunday – Chicken and Veggie Soup with Brown Bread

So tell us what you are having. But then, make your list. Make it right now before you move on to the rest of your life.

You will have the accountability of a whole tribe of women who are trying to get dinner on the table, and then a plan to get your food into the house so you will have peace each and every day at 4:00.

So what are you having for dinner?
