Being the obvious super mom that I am, decided to finally take the plunge and plan out a menu for the week (which you can see at the top of the site). Of course many of you have been doing this for ages and it comes naturally to you.
But I however, have never gotten it together long enough to make this happen. Unfortunately it ended in me feeling like a major newbie. I got my recipes together (which, I will post with pictures throughout the week), made a list and set out to the store this afternoon. Obvious recipe for success. WRONG.
Here are the major mistakes that I made:
1) Created the list in order of recipes, not by category. So once I finally got finished with all the ingredients to one recipe, I had to go BACK to the produce aisle to retrieve yet, more vegetables.
2) Not understanding the layout of the grocery store well enough. I was constantly searching all over the store to find what I needed.
3) Taking C when it was not her prime time of the day. End result: both of us nearly losing our cool.
For all of you who feel like me, I took it upon myself to search the internet to find what a common grocery store’s layout is. Here is what I found:
I hope this helps many of you spare yourself the embarrassment that I endured.
