Meal Planning 101 - Our Update

From recent posts you have probably seen a trend with meal planning!

I am proud to say that we are on week 3 of meal planning in our home! I am so proud of us!! We are doing great at it too.

Thanks to our handy meal planner that we have in our family binder we have stayed on track and cooked at home a lot more than we ever have! Thank you to Clean Mama Printables!

To those of you that know us in real life, you know how much we used to go out to dinner so just to prove to you all that YES we have been cooking and eating at home I decided to take some pictures of our meals!

 Now, I am not the best cook so do not judge my meal presentation too much okay?

Turkey Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes – Jeremy is a meat and potato kind of man so I know he liked this


Taco Night! Jeremy likes hard tacos and I like soft – so his plate looked different than mine. Yummy!


My favorite! Cold Pasta salad with cucumbers, red/yellow/green peppers, cheddar cheese cubes and onions. Tossed with Italian Dressing.

Great for those hot days and also makes a TON of food so there is left overs for lunches! Bonus!

So there you have it! Some of our success.

I will be honest with you, we did go out to dinner 2 times and ordered pizza 1 time since starting this meal planning but I think we are doing fantastic!

Now, leave me some ideas for future plans! What are your favorite quick meals for dinners?
Thinking busy working mom! :O)
