Flat out....I suck at it. Half the time it is just me and the kids, and they have gotten UBER picky. HE will only eat chicken....SHE won't touch it with a ten-foot pole. SHE wants steak with pink in the middle....don't you DARE try and serve her.....GASP.....something cooked through!
SHE doesn't like food that is cooked together (think crock pot, casserole, stew). HE would live on hot dogs, pizza, and pasta if we let him. Oh, and chicken.
We have gotten into some bad habits of high processed foods....high in fat and salt, and high in price.
I tried this week to plan a little better in general. Last night was beef stew, with leftovers tonight (which by the way neither child ate yesterday, and will have grilled cheese tonight). I am watching my friend's kids tomorrow morning, and then she and I have PTA stuff to work on, so they are having lunch with us. I have a chicken in the crock pot as we speak, and will make chicken salad. Tomorrow night we are having jambalaya....which makes a ton and lasts for days.
So there you are...my feeble attempt at planning meals. I am trying to get better about this, especially if I end up getting this job and I am working full time!
