Weekly Meal Planning
I decided to get back to my bi-weekly meal planning. I find it to be much easier to spend an hour planning meals for 2 week and generating a shopping list, than to spend time every day just deciding what to make and making 5 trips to the grocery store in a week. In the past I have just charted my meals on a meal planning print out sheet, but decided to search for a web-site that I can store all meal ideas on a calendar. I found it here. I can enter my meals and add recipes if I would like which would link the recipe ingredients to a shopping list. I'm not using the shopping list as many ingredients I already have on hand, but I do like the idea of being able to link to a web-site to access my menu wherever I am. Plus, if you use a Mac, you can link your menu calendar to your iCal. Check out their site if you are looking to streamline your time in the kitchen. If you use any other sites for meal planning...let me know!
