I hate cooking.
No, that’s not actually true.
I really really dislike cooking.
It’s not calming for me, it’s not enjoyable, I just don’t like it.
I don’t like menu planning either.
(I have obviously now entered my Archie Bunker phase of life).
But I do both because it’s hard to be a stay at home mom and not be the one in charge of cooking. I have I tried to lobby to hire a cook, but somehow, my husband sees that as my role.
So seeing as this appears to be my gig for awhile, I decided to make a menu planning board.
I used a frame I already had, printed out a free menu planning printable, and used an old expo marker I had from teaching to write out the meals.
We’ve been using this for a few weeks and somehow it just makes the whole process a little more enjoyable.
And yes, we eat out once a week.
I need to keep moving toward that white light at the end of the week or else I’d completely give up and just serve cereal for every meal.
*In case you are interested I found the meal plan printable here.
*And just for the record, my husband is awesome and always helps me cook.
