Menu planning has saved me so many times during my years as a parent. The afternoon turns out to be a crazy one, the kids need homework help- all at the same time, and I’m supposed to have dinner on the table in 30 minutes. If it weren’t for having a menu plan, there’s a good chance I would pull out my stash of take-out menus in the hopes of finding dinner quick. With a plan in place, I always have dinner ready to go quickly whether I’ve pulled something from the freezer this morning to thaw, popped a few ingredients into my Slow Cooker or cooked a meal from start to finish in thirty minutes. Having a plan in place takes the stress away.
