Where I Confess How Much I Hate Meal Planning.

love being a wife and a mom and most of the responsibilities that each of those glorious titles entails but if I can be honest with you for a minute, I want to tell you just how much I hate one of the major weekly "chores of domesticity" that falls into my lap. And when I say "hate" I mean, "really, really dread and would rather not do but then my family would go hungry and what kind of mother would I be then?"

If you haven't guessed by now, that "chore" is meal planning. Just the thought of it makes me cringe.

If there is one thing I don't have time for each week, it's to sit down and flip through the pages of a cookbook or click through hoards of Pinterest boards to plan the meals my family will eat each week. 

I mean, I barely have time to sit and think and pee and don't think I haven't once thought about killing two birds with one stone; peeing and meal-planning simultaneously. But seriously, what's more is that not only do I not have time for either of those things, but I also don't have time to then painstakingly organize my grocery list based on said gathering of recipes.

Recently I came across an online resource that has literally saved both my sanity (and a little grocery money) each week. It has taken the guesswork out of planning meals for my family and allows me to take all the credit for preparing healthy, delicious, home-cooked meals each night.
