Meal Plan Monday - Recipes for the week

In my pantry there are fifteen boxes of non-GMO cornstarch. Okay, maybe not fifteen, but a lot. Ironically, I don’t even use cornstarch anymore (I use arrowroot powder), so they are probably going to sit there for a long, long time. One of the main reasons I started Meal Plan Mondays is because every time I headed to the store without a list I ended up buying a bunch of stuff I already had and nothing I actually needed.

I started with short lists, which Daniel was very grateful for. He has gone to work sans deodorant more times than either of us would like to admit thanks to my lack of organization. We make our own deodorant now that works better than store brands, but that’s beside the point.

When I moved to full meal plans life in our house really changed. I still can’t remember what I’m making on any given day (I have to check my own blog for that), but having the list to refer to means it almost always gets done. Gone are the days when Daniel got nothing more than a helpless expression when he asked “What’s for dinner?” Long live Meal Plan Mondays! At least in our house.

P.S. What do you think of the color scheme of today’s photo. I am trying to convince my brilliant blog genius husband to redesign Mommpotamus for me so I’m not trying to fit the theme of the current design anymore.

    I, personally LOVE that color scheme! I say you should do it. While I think the one you have is great, those colors definitely suit this blog more! Have fun at WF!

    Sure! But don’t be mad at me when you realize you’ve been wasting tons of money at the store that you could have spent on coffee ; – )
