How do I Do It?!!!

Well, here's what's worked for me!

Every Sunday I find 3 recipes I'd like to try for the week. Sometimes I re-use a recipe I've enjoyed and other times I search for 3 new recipes. I plan my menu for the week....for instance:

Monday - Simple Coq Au Vin
Tuesday - Steak San Marino
Wednesday - Leftover Coq Au Vin
Thursday - Greek Chicken
Friday -Leftover Steak San Marino
Saturday -Out to dinner
Sunday - Leftover Greek Chicken

I make a shopping list and go to the grocery store every Sunday for the ingredients I will need for the week. Sunday night, after my daughter goes to bed, I prepare Monday's recipe, put it in the crock pot and stick it in the fridge. Monday morning, I stick it in the crock pot, turn it on and go to work! That's how I do it!!! Makes my life SO much easier and it will make yours easier too! :) Print Friendly and PDF


  1. Great tips! I try to menu plan Saturdays & shop Sunday mornings. I use a theme for each day - mexican monday, asian tuesday etc to use as a guideline. I want to include a "crockpot" day also so I'll be trying out your recipes. :-)

  2. Thanks Natalie! I hope they work out for you! Maybe I'll have a couple "theme" weeks to come!
