I have been making a weekly menu and grocery shopping for that week's menu for quite sometime now. I usually sit with my laptop on Sundays going....MMMMMM...what to make. I really need to come up with a better system. Ryan and I have been saying for ever that we need to make a master list of dishes I have made and that we love. Right now I browse through some of my favorite food sites for inspiration and build from there. I have heard of some people making each day of the week a theme and then picking from there. For example Monday's are soup or chili, Tuesday pasta, Wednesday chicken etc... I think that might be a good idea to try. So for now I will share my fav sites to go looking for ideas and this weeks menu. Please share your ideas and tips in the comments as I would LOVE SOME HELP :) LOL
Favorite Sites to Look for Dinner Ideas:
Better Homes and Gardens
Good Life Eats
