One thing I do is plan nights for leftovers. If I don't cook Monday night's dinner, then Tuesday night can't be leftovers. The other thing I do is plan a list of things I will make, but be flexible about which nights. Oh, and I don't ask my spouse what he wants for dinner anymore-I just make it. lol "Guess what honey? We're having flank steak for dinner!"

Another thing that helps me is planning meals that compliment each other by using leftovers. For example, I'll make slow cooker chicken on Monday with rice. Then Tuesday the leftovers become chicken fried rice with a bag of peas thrown in with it. Or cook a ham on Sunday, and Tuesday make ham salad for sandwiches or wraps. Flank steak makes wonderful sandwiches or salads.

hey everyone I am Jen, I just started meal planning this week I actually have a link up on my blog for people who blog about there meal plans. But I find it hard to stick to the meal plan I think next week will be a little different for us but this week we have not eaten one thing on the list. Tonight I believe we might depending on what my wife wants for dinner... This is just hard to stick to. How do you stick to it?
