When we do eventually upgrade to a combi I think I will try to shop on a 14 day cycle, with the exception of really good sales. Actually ultimately I would like to have a well stocked pantry and only shop necessities and sale items, but that will take some time.
As I plan meals I have found it is really hard to seek out recipes, not due to a lack of resources but just not knowing what to look for. I would end up with week with 5 days pasta, or all chicken. So I decided to create a guideline for myself. Now this is no way set in stone, it is just to guide me to various types or recipes and keep a nice variety in our diet.
So as of now my outline for the 10 day cycles is:
6. Sandwiches x2
7. quick and easy/budget meals x2
How do you plan your meals?
