For the Love of Food- Planning Ahead

If you could only see my kitchen table. It's littered with cookbooks, magazines and printed recipes. My calendar is somewhat on top of the pile, as is a printed month meal planner. I'm not trying to be a great cook. I am just trying to figure out meals that will work for our insanely busy schedule. I am also trying to figure out easy meals (quick to make) that will taste good reheated. During the week, we rarely get to sit down together. So someone usually has to reheat dinner. We have several crockpot meals a week but there's only so many crockpot meals I can take in one week.

This is such a busy season. I know it is only just beginning in some ways. My oldest started high school. My second started middle school. My 3rd and 4th are in elementary school. It's the extra activities that are making meal planning a new adventure for me.

There's not much else to note about this. But if you could see my kitchen table, you'd chuckle.

My table looks like that at least once a week, too. I'm tired of the tacos/spaghetti/grilled chicken rotation, so I have been looking for new favorites to fill in here and there. Preferably quick recipes, easily doubled, so I can have some for freezing (or more likely, left over for lunches). But my week goes so much better with a meal plan than without, so I'll keep doing it. Besides, I love cookbooks :)
