‎”This is my advice to people: Learn how to cook, try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun” -Julia Child

I like to cook. I love to buy cook books and pour over their pages dreaming of the scrumptious healthy meals my family will gobble up. I like to plan a menu.  But something I never lost from my childhood is the “have to”. If I have to do it, I don’t want to.  I believe that I “have to” plan 21 meals, 21 toddler friendly meals, a week.  Oh my heavens! I know me, I might do it once, I might even do it 2 weeks in a row, but that 3rd week will be half take out and half what I can  grab from the fridge. I want to be successful at homemaking, not perfect. So I needed work arounds that were healthy and a plan that was enjoyable.

Here is what I came up with to make our lives healthier and easier.

Now I can sit down with my cookbooks and a cup of tea for fun! It becomes a moment for myself, not a “have to”.  I no longer “have to” stand in front of the pantry skimming my brain for a pop of genius that is dinner, only to end up sending my Husband to the nearest drive through.
