Basic Meal Planning

My family is really enjoying basic meal-planning. Do we stray from it at times?? Of course! But, it gives the four of us some basic structure to our meals, diet and grocery bill. We've been doing this for a few months now and the kids really enjoy opening up the pantry door to see what's for dinner ...
I start by noting which nights I have my kids that week. Then I plug in family outings and evening commitments. Next, I look through the pantry, refrigerator and freezer to see what can be thrown together for enjoyable meals during the week. Then I plug in additional meals on the menu and add those items to my shopping list.

Does your family meal plan??
