Right now it's dinner time. I like to eat, so it's an important time of day for me!
I don't generally use weekly meal plans (unlike Leanne who wrote about meals plans as part of her blog hop post), the only time I do is if I'm ordering the food shopping online, or maybe if we have guests coming to stay. Otherwise I often just buy what we need on the day - but I still plan it ahead, because I like to buy it early in the day.
I've found that what works for me best when organising my meals is to start preparing and / or cooking it as early in the day as possible.
In the winter I love to cook lots of slow cooker meals, that I can make in the morning during baby's naptime, and then leave until it's time for our evening meal. The only trouble comes from trying not to eat it earlier because of the yummy smells spreading through the house!
In the summer we eat meals like jacket potatoes, or chicken pasta bake, that can be cooking for an hour or so before dinner time, or something like my pork and apple burgers, that I can prepare in the afternoon but then cook super quickly at dinner time.
But, if all else fails, and I've been totally un-organised, there's nothing wrong with having the occasional fish-and-chips:
And yes, this is the meal I'm eating right now, hastily photographed and uploaded for you to see. Jealous? Sorry!
Do you plan your meals in advance? Is there one that you fall back on when you have no time to spare?
See you in an hour - just four posts of the weekend left to go! x
