I did want to share our resource list for this episode:
Dine & Dish- Kristen joined us this hour to share some great ways her family has been simplifying their dinner hour and her new approach towards menu planning. She is a valuable resource for moms and I am very thankful to have had her on the show.
Simple & Delicious Magazine- Kristen recommended this magazine subscription as a great resource for busy moms in helping add some sparkle back to our dinner hours.
How Do You Do Your Menu Plans?- In this entry, I discuss some fun & creative approaches towards menu planning. In my goal to simplify this year, I am now doing two week menu plans instead of one month. It has made my life a lot easier and now I can fit my daughter in the cart AND my groceries at the same time.
One Month of Slow Cooking- We discussed how hard it can be to get dinner on the table when you have small children, and I shared that my solution when we brought our new baby girl home was to try planning a month with my slow cooker. This article contains the recipes that I used to simplify my dinner hour with a new baby.
Menu Plan Mondays- I’m An Organizing Junkie offers a wonderful round-up for moms where you can post and share your family’s menu plans. This has inspired me many times and is a great spot to visit when you are lacking that inspiration! Laura will also be joining us in just a couple of short weeks to share how I can simplify the cluttered mess I am currently living in. I can’t wait for that discussion.
