Guess what I have done two weeks in a row? I wrote out a menu and coordinating grocery shopping list! Woo-hoo! I feel like such a domestic engineer… ;)
When Justin and I were first married last April, I was all into being the perfectly organized wife, and writing out my shopping list and menus. And then time passed along and, yeah, the enthusiasm was gone (organization has never come easily for me…).
Yes, I still cooked for us, but the meals a lot of the time were planned at the last minute with me asking Justin to bring something home, or me making a mad dash to the store for that last ingredient. Or even to my shame at times asking his parents for that one ingredient I needed to finish up the pizza dough…
With a new year, I am slowly making some life changes. And one of those changes is striving to be organized in our meal planning. That is especially necessary since I am now eating gluten free as much as possible.
No more last minute meal deals for me and the hubby.
Everything is going to be planned out.
I can do this.
I’m a wife. (Mind blown by that fact most days)
I am a domestic engineer, and I will do this!
Or at least by GOD’s grace, I am going to try.
Why? So through HIS grace, I can be a blessing and help meet to my husband. Just as I am called to be.
So off to the grocery store I go. Move out the way folks! I am a wife on mission. Oh yes…
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
