Weekly Menu Plan 4/3-4/9

Nearly every meal I prepare consists of foods I have cooked or baked in bulk and frozen. I thaw items in a plastic shoe box to prevent condensation dripping onto my shelves (I’ve learned from experience). I shop my freezer from my freezer inventory,  to see what goodies I can thaw and serve to my family. I write these items down on a seven-day menu plan and post it on my refrigerator as a reminder to thaw my food 24 hours ahead of time. Typically right after the dishes are done, I check my menu plan and put new items into my thawing box and slash them off my freezer inventory. Here’s what I’m thawing this week…

I used to be a frazzled mom at five o’clock never knowing what I was going to serve for dinner. God has blessed me with this wisdom to plan ahead and save my sanity with four kids. It’s been a tremendous blessing cooking this way. I know one day I’ll go back to the “gourmet” days, but for now this works for us and I’m grateful. This post is linked to Gratituesday.
