Grocery Shopping.. one of my favorite but most unfavorite things to do.. UNLESS I have a LIST! And a list is no good without a PLAN! So, I've been doing good at MENU planning. I decided that I was bored with the same menu items that I always use, so I went searching for some new recipes. I got excited about all of it and decided to share!!
Start Searching! These are MY requirements for a recipe:
2) no too much prep work
3) ingredients that are familiar, like what I would find in my shopping basket on a regular basis (1 or 2 different/un "normal" ingredients is fine. (Plays into not going WAY over budget!)
4) tastes amazing- liked by whole family! (maybe ONE brand new/different/going to try something new recipe for the week.)
I also like to hear that other people LOVE the recipes. Soooo, the website I've mentioned before, ORGJUNKIE.COM does a weekly menu and then she keeps track of the family favs HERE! What I find absolutely FABULOUS about this is that SHE is trying all the NEW/DIFFERENT things and I'M trying all the fool proof/ family loves it stuff!
I usually plan for 2 weeks worth of food (dinners) by adding some family MUST HAVES and a few new recipes that I'm SURE they'll LIKE!
I've attached the GROCERY LIST that I just made up. And as far as my MENU.. I keep it on my calendar. So, if you are needing a calendar for this purpose click HERE to make one.. or use your Microsoft Word program to make a cute customized one :)
TODAY, I went searching and found 9 amazing recipes to share.. here are the links... (or they will be included in the download below with the grocery shopping list!)
