Are you part of a blended family?
As if getting dinner on the table wasn't challenge enough, add a blended family to the mix and you've got a recipe for frustration. Menu planning to the rescue! It becomes even more important to have a plan that works.
Rita from This Sorta Old Life wrote a great post about her experience with menu planning for her blended family. She's got great ideas, you can read her guest post over at Go Gingham. (We were honoured to be mentioned as part of her inspiration and method for planning!)
What's on our Menu this week:
On the menu tonight was a Glazed Spiral Ham, Corn and Mashed Potatoes. (Ed made extra potatoes for Planned-Overs later this week.)
