Meal Pinning Monday

July 8, 2013

This week we are still getting settled, I'm still searching for lost/hiding cooking items, and we are doing all the fun that goes into getting settled into a new place. Meal planning is definitely a necessity considering the constant on-the-go that goes into it, join in with me this week and share your dinner menus, even if you just type them in the comments! 

I recently wrote an article for 5 Minutes for Mom (I'm an intern there right now!) called Using Pinterest to Meal Plan, I'd love for y'all to check it out. 

[What is Meal Pinning Monday?]
MPM is how I meal plan for our little family. I once spent a lot of time searching the web and my recipe books hunting for new recipes and ideas for what to cook every week. Then, Pinterest came along and made meal planning much easier for me. Every weekend I look over what I have pinned the prior week and decide what I would like to cook and make my grocery list from these recipes. MPM came about as a way to share what I am cooking, and to also see what others are cooking every week to hopefully get even more dinner ideas from other bloggers. If you don't pin your recipes feel free to just share what you are cooking.
