Meal Planning Mommies

With the holiday weekend upon us, I thought perhaps a blog about cooking would be perfect. Meal Planning Mommies. 3 Mom's planning that. Planning's a love/hate relationship in my home. If I had my way, we wouldn't eat dinner.

What caught my eye with Meal Planning Mommies, is all the categories. From Freezer Meals to weekly meal my favorite.....Toddler Ideas. I don't have a toddler anymore and I was SO lucky not to have a picky eating toddler........I would have loved to have had these ideas about 8 years ago. More on toddlers.........first though, how about a burger?
They show tutorials on meal fixin's..........WE LOVE A TUTORIAL!
Burgers.......Mmmmmm. Who's gonna have a burger this weekend? I am I am!! Most of us know what to put on a burger...........but how many of us put healthy avocado on it? Yes it's healthy......sure it has fat.........but it's the good fat. My latest fav on a burger is sauteed portobello mushrooms. Yum!

Here's one of their toddler ideas........... don't tell them, but I may like this too.

Who knew these would be so easy to make.
More toddler ideas........but even older kids would totally get into this. This would be a great idea for your Memorial Day picnic. My son used to LOVE green olives when he was small........and if you soak them in your martini first, they make them sleepy.............totally teasing! Don't bother with the hate mail............remember......I have a wicked sense of humor........ He also like pickled asparagus......

Simple this one. My son would love those.
Why haven't I thought of these before?
You'll find lots of ideas for meal planning. There are 3 of them that write this blog.
Sarah does week long dinner meal plans that are inexpensive and easy at The Frugal Table, perfect for any Mom looking to fix good meals that won't break the bank!

Alisha does Out of the Box, for week long dinner meal plans that are simple and creative, perfect for the busy Mom who still wants to fix meals that are crowd pleasers!
And Katie does The Tasty Green for week long dinner meal plans that are perfect for any Mom who is trying to show her family that a breadstick is not a vegetable.
All three are pregnant, so their posts may be far and few between, but there's so much on their site already that I know many of you mom's would find something useful. Anything to make our day's a bit easier right? Actually I wish I could just have someone show up and either drop off a meal or cook it up for me..............HEY! Now that's a business someone should start. Kind of like Meals on Wheels for Internet addicted moms. I'm first on the list.
Enjoy your holiday weekend everyone!
