Plan dinner with less thinking

Have you noticed that most home management systems claim that having a menu plan is essential? It’s true. Knowing what is for dinner and having the ingredients on hand promotes peace in our minds and homes. But do you realize how many steps are actually involved in menu planning? Typical menu planning involves multiple dependent steps:

  1. Find out what’s on sale or what coupons you have.
  2. Find recipes you can cook and want to eat.
  3. Figure out what ingredients you need to cook those recipes.
  4. Try to mesh the ingredients you need with what’s on sale.
  5. Make the grocery list.
  6. Shop.
  7. Remember what you’re going to make for dinner when, and pull it off.
  8. Use the perishables before they go bad.

No wonder we often dread it, forget to do it, or procrastinate. Four years ago I decided I needed a better solution than spreading out recipe cards, ads, calendars, and lists, and attempting to make them all magically come together into a plan. I’ve distilled all that research, experimentation, and thinking into an easy-to-use reference: Simplified Dinners.
