I'm pretty sure that I have posted about this before, but one thing that I HATE and I mean really HATE is coming up with what to eat for dinner every night. Cooking it, even doing the dishes from it isn't as bad as coming up with the idea! I have had several people offer up great ideas for me and I sorta combined all of them into one plan that works for me! This is not some super magical idea that I came up with, but one that I like and saves me LOTS of time and thought...and negative thoughts about dinner ha ha. I thought I would share it with all of you!

It is probably hard to see from the picture, so go ahead and click on it to make it larger. I decided it is SO hard to come up with an idea since there are a million billion things I could make for dinner. So I decided to give each day a "theme" or style of food. Here is what I chose: Crock Pot, Mexican, Pizza, Italian, Asian, Breakfast, Soup/Sandwich. With these categories it narrows down the possibilities by a LOT. And if I made a calendar all I had to do was come up with four different entrees'. Simple as that! Dinner around here has been much more planned out, healthier, happier and stress free! Feel free to copy from me if you like! Thanks to my cousinErin and friendShantel for their ideas, inspiration and recipes that helped me make this! Happy eating to all!
We met each other in high school and have been married since 2008. At the end of 2010 we welcomed our little girl, Elise and in 2013 we were joined by James. We are currently living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin while Zack attends The Medical College of Wisconsin. He is in his 4th and final year of medical school and works very hard for all of us! Emily is lucky enough to stay home and take care of Elise and James.
