I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m kind of a menu planning flunkie. I used to plan menus a month at a time. Oh, those were the days. But, those days are history. I’m sometimes lucky if I can manage to plan just a week at a time.
When I was really trying to get back to menu planning a month at a time, I had a lot of luck with using different themed nights to make that a little more doable. Don’t worry, I’m not suggesting that every night is a party. It’s just a basic structure that can help you have a basis for putting together a meal plan for a week, two weeks, a month — whatever works for you.
In this week’s podcast, I’m sharing ideas for theme nights that might work well for your family, along with some helpful tips on that and what has worked well for us.
I’m also sharing just a little inspiration at the end about not giving up on things you really want to do. You’ll even find out about someone near and dear to me who quit college only to go back later and finish it up like a rock star.
I have, again, gone with a shorter episode this week. It’s a change up from how I was doing it, with two main segments, plus my closing thoughts/an action for you to do. I am now doing just one main segment, plus the closing. I’m hoping that it makes it easier for you to fit listening into your schedule. This week’s episode is right around twelve minutes, which makes it perfect for listening while you’re running some errands around town or doing a little house cleaning. (Or, you know, if you’re me, you might just sit and relax while you listen. We need more time to relax, don’t we?)
