Hi there! Mama here.

Okay, so I've recently finished a mammoth project to revitalize our home-cooking agenda. Before, I would spend hours trying to come up with new and exciting meals to make each week, feeling very much like I was reinventing the wheel each time. What I've done recently has made that a whole lot easier.

Instead of racking my brain for seven distinct meals to prepare at the start of each week, I've now identified seven distinct types of meals that we serve here in the Sweet Home kitchen, and I've assigned each day of the week one of said meal categories in the hopes of easing the task of weekly meal planning.

To make the process even easier, for each type of weekly meal I listed, I made a spreadsheet with a list of all the specific recipes I currently know how to cook in that category, along with some I'd like to learn and test out. Sound too good to be true? It's not. I did it and now meal planning has become so much simpler!

Here's a sneak peak at my meal plan for this week. Feel free to re-create one for yourself, or if you don't have even the teensiest desire to do that, I have personalized templates available for a $5 instant download at my etsy shop. ;)

I hope this helps some of you in your own home kitchens as much as it's helping me, and happy planning!

Until next time,

Sweet Home à la Mama
