Menu Plan Monday – 29th August 2016

Menu Plan Monday 29th August 2016 - We plan out meals in advance to make like easier for ourselves. It took a while to get organised but it's a habit now and it really does work!

We’re back on the DIY trail this week so convenience is key! Picked meals with minimal effort or that I can do the major prep for throughout the day.

    Mmm your adults menu sounds delicious! I might have to steal some of your ideas as I’m getting bored of my own! #bestandworst

      We get bored very easily. Menu planning means I can try and mix things up a bit because I have a note of everything we’ve had recently

      It just takes 5 minutes on a Sunday to plan our dinners for the week. I find a save loads of money this way too as I’m only buying ingredients for specific meals

      I think thats pretty common for toddlers! I am trying to give him a little of everything – some days he likes it and some days he doesn’t. I’m sure he’s only going to get fussier as he gets older so I’m cramming in as much variety as I can now!
