Welcome to our weekly meal plan for the week of May 7th, 2017.

Meal planning is an imperfect art in our home.  Not because the plan is not a solid one, but because with City Spouse’s Crohn’s, some days the meal on the plan can aggravate an already sensitive subject.  Our meal plan is very adaptable to accommodate his condition, as well as our personal likes and dislikes.  When you have sensitive stomachs, food sensitivities, and other issues, having a plan that can be easily changed is essential.

Each week, I get our meals for the entire week planned out so that there are no surprises to our grocery budget. City Spouse wouldn’t really care, as he’s a fast food addict, but I’m of the mindset that home-cooked is ALWAYS better- both in taste and in nutrition.

Having a Plan

Want to avoid arguments with your family and streamline your grocery shopping?  Having a plan is key.  You will already know exactly what you need so you can get in and get out without having to wander aimlessly around the store.  This haphazard method of shopping is costing you both time and money, and streamline your grocery shopping experience.  How many things do you come home with that you don’t really need?

Eliminate Food Waste

Not only does this help save you money by not buying things you don’t need, but it helps you to save money by eliminating food waste within your home.  Having a clear plan of what you are buying and when it will be used can help to keep the amount of food you end up throwing away to a minimum.  If you have a small household, planning a day to eat the leftovers (as I do) can help even less of your hard earned grocery money from going into the trash.

Keep It In Sight

I have a sheet that I write down what we are having and post to the refrigerator. First, I shop in the freezers (yes, we have two) and pantry to see what we have on-hand that I can use instead of having to purchase it. Then, I return to the pantry and see what I already have there to supplement the main dishes.

Some weeks I plan for snacks and/or desserts, and some weeks I don’t. It really just depends on the week and what my to-do list looks like.
