One of the struggles I’ve recently encountered since returning to work full time is keeping up with the household “stuff.” It’s what I refer to as the daily grind. Work? Not so much. I love what I am doing so I don’t mind putting in the hours and throwing myself into it. If you’ve been a SGM reader for a while you know my battles with the Mount Everest of laundry plus keeping up with the household cleaning, kids activities, and cooking! It is no surprise that I spend A LOT of time in the kitchen testing recipes, making lunches, and naturally cleaning up after myself.
When it comes to feeding my family, fresh food is very important. I make most things from scratch and homemade dinner is served 5 nights a week. I have to make a confession here: I cheat. I use a meal planning service for lunch AND dinner. For lunches I use MOMables and dinner… well, hop on over and read about why you should meal plan too. I am giving you the inside scoop on how to meal plan on your own here.
