Mama’s Out of Town. What’s for Dinner???!!!

18156121_10211546131705543_5812658207797941587_oI’m taking a work trip to Chicago for a whole week by myself for the first time since I had my first child.  I’m a pretty disorganized cook.  Meaning, I don’t meal plan much and I am always hoping I have ingredients I need to make something to eat for dinner.  While I’m away, my family could eat out every day or use a microwave and warm up frozen dinners, but we try to eat healthy.

When I do plan for things, this is what happens….I make meal plans that resemble sub plans(I’m an art teacher)…

I did my best to create a system that fits our dietary needs that my husband could eaily use to feed the family and that they would actually eat.   It’s pretty basic. Our meals usually consist of a meat and a veggie.  Simple enough for my husband to cook.

First, I took a picture of each shelf and drawer in the fridge and freezer and then the different cabinets with our dry goods.  I used a word doc and put the photos in order from the top shelves/drawers to the bottom.  I usually put away the groceries, so I’m hoping this makes it easier for my husband to find all the ingredients.

 

 

 

After taking pictures of all of the food, I made a spread sheet with the location of each item and some dinner ideas that I know my husband can cook.

Hoping it works!
