As people get busy in our society, it is sometimes necessary to make a formal but yet informal meal plan.
The idea behind this is to have a group of meals pre planned yet give you the spontaneous choice. I took a group of nine meals and 3 starches that could be made in the crock pot.
I scrap booked the recipes on to paper and put behind glass in a picture frame. that way when I finish a recipe in the rotation I can cross it out with a dry erase marker. It makes it easy to plan meals this way and shop for them.
I plan to have different meal rotations for the different months of the year. This way I can take advantage of seasonal fruits and vegetables.
