Over the past couple of years, I have had the opportunity to cater some smaller events, and through these I have learned so very much about planning ahead and the detail involved. For me, I tend to not like schedules and structure (in my mind strict have-to’s in my day… I wrote about this subject a while back here). And, while I know the importance of being organized, when it comes to planning meals for our family, I feel like I am often trying different methods, reading about what works and doesn’t for some, or just too overwhelmed with all the options out there that I just stick with some of our regular meal rotations. Between all the beautiful cookbooks available, online sources, food magazines, and of course my Pinterest boards, I have found that I repeatedly struggle with too many choices. Decision making has never been a strength of mine (just ask Andy or my Mom!) so with all the many possibilities available to me, sometimes it’s frankly overwhelming.
So, here I want you to chime in… what do you do when it comes to meal planning? What works or doesn’t for you? How do you stay organized with it all? I know several people who do this very successfully and I don’t feel like I am a failure at it, by any means, but it is an area that this year especially I am determined to conquer. I love working on planning when I take the time to do so. Please share any thoughts or suggestions… I’d truly love to hear!
And a happy weekend to all! xo2 Comments
