New Year Goals

I am terrible at planning dinners in advance. Usually around 3 pm each afternoon I realize that I have no idea what I am going to make for dinner. Once I finally get an idea of what to cook, I realize that I don't usually have the ingredients to make the chosen dinner. I could wake up the sleeping baby (sometimes baby& toddler), drag the troops to the grocery store to get the needed supplies, then get home and make dinner OR I could make frozen pizza or have Paul pick up dinner (and then put it our own plates so it qualifies as dinner at home).

Just recently, I found an amazing website that has menus planned. LOTS of menus. No crazy menus that my kids would never touch. Not super complex dinners that would spend hours on every day. Not crazy meals that call for ingredients that I have never knew existed. But easy dinners!! Check it out here.

So I am going to try to make dinners this year. Better than PB&J dinners.

Maybe next year I will aim to make dinners and lunches. Maybe...

(In full disclosure, we aren't starting the real too well. I had plans for dinner yesterday & today, but yesterday we went to a friend's for the Badger game. Today we are having people over for the Packer game, so will have to postpone the planned dinner again). Maybe it will just be a weekday resolution...

This should completely be our new year's resolution as well. I can relate with 100% everything you wrote - except we usually just go out instead of bringing the food to us. And I love the end where it didn't start so well because that is exactly what would happen to us and does. Happy New Year! Here's to cooking...
