I really, really try to plan out meals for the week before I go grocery shopping on Saturday mornings, but as you know life doesn’t always happen as planned. However, this next week will be different!
Here are some of my favorite SIMPLE (and good-for-you) recipes for the family.
Here is how I rate a recipe (this explains my cooking philosophy, it changes with the addition of each child, ha! aka, as life gets crazier and crazier)
1) Is the recipe easy to make? (Can I make this recipe while entertaining a 2 year-old and a 5 year-old and breast feed a baby? JK, but I think you get the picture)
2) Would my husband eat this?
3) Does the recipe involve balanced nutrition?
Well, folks let me help make this week a bit easier for the both of us, here is to a weeks worth of meals, plus shopping list!
