How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good. I had a few days off of work. Got to hang out with mom.
Today we are going to talk menus.
I am coming for one person. Me. Lol.
I still like to have a menu plan. I use the diyfish inserts. On the left I plan out my meals. Yes I even do breakfast and lunch. I don't have to stick to the plan like glue. I just make a plan so when I go grocery shopping I am getting what I need then I can cook whatever from there. Does that make sense?
So here in these pictures are examples of how I am writing my grocery list. I plan out the menu on the left. Then I write down all of the ingredient I need on the right. I cross out what I already have. This might seem redundant or petty but it works for me. I'm actually thinking of taking it a sheep further and writing what I actually need on a sticky note.
Then I write the meals at the top of my daily page. Just to keep in mind.
So there you have it. That's how I meal plan for just me. I go grocery shopping every two weeks.
Since I don't have a family to cook for I usually have a lot of left over. I have those for lunches or I freeze them.
I've been trying to do better at eating breakfast but still not the greatest. Lol. If I wake up early enough it's cereal or frozen waffles. Lol. Or I stop and grab something from McDonald's.
Sometimes it's hard to cook for one person. There is probably no point in menu planning for one person. But I like having once so I don't overspend on groceries and such.
How do you menu plan? Do you have a master meal list? Do you cook for you? Do you cook for you and a family? Do you plan it in your planner?
I would love to see pictures! Or read comments!
