I don’t know about you, but one of my LEAST favorite chores each week is choosing our meals. I love the cooking. I really love the eating. I can even tolorate the grocery shopping. But the deciding? I hate that part. (That is actually true about me in far more ways than just meals, but I digress.)
I finally decided this past weekend that the entire family should know how much I detest this particular chore of mine. Since we are ALL eating, and since during almost every meal I have to hear about how someone didn’t want this or like that … well, I figure we can ALL contribute to the list. And so it was.
My girls got together in the school room and made a list – each choosing 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 snacks, and 2 dinners that they really want. Meanwhile, the hub and I sat in the kitchen choosing the other 3 of each meal. We put the lists together, made a meal plan and a grocery list. Who knew it could be this easy?
So far, this seems like an awesome plan … we’ll see if it continues to work out well for us. Does your family have a challenge when it comes to selecting meals? How do you keep the peace?
