Happy New Year my bloggy friends! I am just back from a little vacay, which I will tell you all about once I get my pics off my camera. Today I am unpacking, doing laundry, getting some groceries in the house, and getting ready to go back to work tomorrow.
I love a new year because, just like a new school year, it's a fresh start. One thing I want to change this year is to do my menu planning a month at a time. I know, yuck.
I've always menu planned before going grocery shopping, but I haven't been doing any of that since I went back to work. We've been eating way too much processed and fast food, and it leaves me feeling yucky and cranky. So, for 2010, I desperately need to get my menu planning ducks in a row and have a plan.
When I started making my recipe cards a couple years ago, my plan was to get enough recipes together so that I could do a rotating monthly menu to simplify my life when I went back to work. Well, I'm back at work now, but I still don't have that rotating menu. Dang it.
I loathe menu planning, but I cannot grocery shop without doing it, so, like I said, my goal for 2010 is to stay on top of it from here on out. So towards that end, today I sat down and planned out our menu for January. Grocery shopping isn't such a drag, and stressful, when I have a plan.
What about you? What are you working on doing better this year?
