September 14 Be Prepared

One of the best ways to make sure your family eats well is to plan. I have a friend who plans everything from the menu to what she needs to purchase at the store. She also tracks how much she spends on everything. I am not this organized. I have tried many different ways to plan and found the best for us was to write everything on the refrigerator. This way I can see what needs to be purchase or pulled out of the freezer to thaw. I put the meals Audrey is helping with so I can plan accordingly. Also, Audrey's daddy does not have to ask what is for dinner.
Here is what is for dinner this week:

As you can see we are a family that is still focusing on meat as a main course. Audrey's daddy was raised this way and is the reason for the difficulty in changing focus. I am trying to find  meals that satisfy the entire family while still feeding us healthy foods. This is hard. What you see represents a very typical week for us. I was not able to plan side dishes this week because I have been so busy. I ended up cooking anything that was about to go bad. How do you plan for your week?
