Menu planning is such a blessing to our family – it ensures that even on busy weeknights we are still eating well. I’ve found that being intentional about even our snacks helps us make better choices during the week. Do you find the same thing?
As we move into the fall, it can become quite easy for me to spend much of Saturday and Sunday in the kitchen preparing good foods for us to eat during the week. However, sometimes this leaves me burnt out and not ready for a week that is busy!
So, I’m adjusting my schedule a bit so that I only spend time in the kitchen one day of the weekend. The other, will be a Sabbath rest for me; we’ll do leftovers or meals you can make with little prep so that I can take a bit of a break. I’m hopeful that God will honor this decision to take a rest and will continue to provide time and energy to do the cooking that I love.
