Does This Sound like Your Typical Morning? Saved by the Dinner Plan
It was a pretty typical morning. By 7 a.m. I had cleaned up the kitchen and cleaned up dog vomit, made 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches, changed the laundry and changed a light bulb. I had been up several times during the night with a sick child. Andrew had left at 5 a.m. for a business trip, and my head was groggy, but fortunately coffee was brewing (yes, also made by me). You know, the usual.
As I looked ahead to my chaotic day full of meetings and to-do lists, I realized the only thing that didn’t stress me out was dinner. I knew what I was making– Crispy Black Bean Taquitos–and I knew that it would only take me about 20 minutes to have a delicious and healthy meal on the table for my family, so I could finally sit down with them and relax for a while–at least before getting up to do the dishes!
I’m telling you this story because a) you can probably relate to my morning, and b) I hope you are finding as much comfort and calm from weekly dinner planning with The Scramble. If you know someone whose dinnertime routine feels as chaotic as the rest of their day, then I hope you’ll consider telling them about the joy of weekly menu planning with The Six O’Clock Scramble. Ask them if they’d like someone to plan their weekly meals and give them a grocery list to take with them to the store each week for about $1 a week. Do you think they’ll be able to resist?
