You are so my hero in this area!! I have just got to make it a priority and do better at meal planning. It must so nice to have an older helper around to work on it all.

Is it hard to actually stick to the menu once you have it planned? Does it feel like life isn't spontaneous? What if you don't feel like eating beef (or chicken or fish)? What if things get busy and you don't have time to make what is on the menu.

what do you do???

Keep teaching me, girl! I'm listening/reading!
