Meal Planning- June

I have been on such a whirlwind since January and I feel like MANY things have slipped through the cracks.  One of those areas has been dinner.  There's been way more leftovers and take out the past several months and I feel like a failure.  I'm finally catching a few minutes to breathe and on the top of my to-do list as things are slowing down was getting back to meal planning.  It's ironic that as I got busier I dropped meal planning because it's when you are busy that it really helps.  If you are busy too this meal planning may just take one thing off our your to-do list.  You can copy it completely or use it as inspiration.

If you want to create your own I have a few suggestions.  First type out all the meals you make and your family likes to eat.  I list them all on the side of the calendar and then start dragging them to the days.  That way I can see everything together and then plan them strategically.  Next, put things together that make your cooking easier.  For example, I'm starting the month with spaghetti (pictured below) and taco salad.  This way I only have to brown ground beef once and separate for two different meals. Another example is chicken ranch tacos and chicken quesadillas.  I just put in extra chicken in the crockpot for the first meal and save some for the next night.

Let me know if you have any questions or want a recipe.  Also please share your favorite (EASY) recipes with me; I'm always looking for something new to switch things up around here.
