Weekends are my meal planning time for the upcoming week. I have realized it takes SO much stress off of my plate to prepare a menu and have all ingredients ready for the week.
What about you? Do you meal plan? And what I’m really wishing we could do is all get around a big ol’ dining room table and visit over a glass (or two) of wine…….so I could be totally nosy and ask you…….
🍔🌮🍕🍤🍝WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE QUICK AND EASY (and kinda healthy?!) RECIPES???
I’ll go first…..we LOVE “bowls” or “stacks”. So I’ll prepare a meat (usually chicken or beef with a Mexican seasoning) and have all the add-ons…..avocado, cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, or this recipe that I’ll be trying this week……
- Search Pinterest for “Quick Meal Ideas” or “Easy Healthy Meals” or any combo you can think of. Try several search combinations.
- Plan your calendar first….if you have a night of busy stuff, make that a crock or Instant Pot night.
- Be flexible. If you put steaks on to marinate and your hubby runs late and can’t ‘man the grill’…..let it marinate another night….because in the end you will NOT regret it…….
4. Make it a special ritual. Put on music, sip a glass of wine, and I TRY to remember…..I’m nourishing my family in their bellies but also in their souls…..I pray “Lord, show me how to nourish my family’s soul. Let this food carry upon it the sweetness of your presence and create a place where we understand that you see meals as a place where you have set a banquet for us before our enemies. Relationship and covenant are made in the meals we create.
