A few months ago, I bought this pretty three ring binder. Living in one room in a basement, while we build our house above us, makes it very hard to stay organized or have a schedule of any kind. Here is one small thing I did to try to help organize my life a bit.
But the main thing I got out of the whole organize thing that has made my week so much easier is on Sunday evenings, My Shug and I discuss what to have for dinner the coming week. We plan meals for Monday through Friday, according to our weekly schedule. It's not an event. We usually are sitting down in front of the TV on Sundays by 8:00 and we discuss meals and schedules while reading the paper or watching TV.
On Mondays I get groceries. I buy from the list of meals. No more conversations of,
"What are we having for dinner?"
"What sounds good?"
"I don't care."
"How about meatloaf?"
Now we know exactly what we are having for the week. I'm still flexible, as things do pop up. But it's usually a simple matter of switching meals around. I don't have to make last minute trips to the grocery store. And I don't have to think about it on a daily basis. I love it.
Here's a recipe you might like. It's yummy and easy. I received it in the mail from Kroger's (local grocery store) a few years ago.
It uses a lot of canned foods, so it's probably high in sodium, but you could buy low sodium varieties.
