Not long after I was married in 1970 I came up with a meal plan to help put dinner on the table for my family. I wanted it to be direct, Easy, Nutritional, Budget Friendly, stress free and liberating!!! It came to me that choosing a Theme for each night made deciding what to cook each day super easy!! So direct it was. We chose Theme Nights. Comfort Food, Italian, Fish Meatless or Breakfast, Mexican, Pizza, Grill and Tradition.
This gave me direction and made it so EASY for me to plan great Nutritional, Budget friendly meals on a consistent basis!! I learned that planning for 2 weeks was best, cooking 5 nights a week. This took all the stress out of cooking and liberated me!!
My Meal Plan soon became a lifestyle and I was not only feeding my family good easy nutritional meals, but I was enjoying the soulful time that I was finding in food preparation. I also knew that Dinnertime was the most important part of the day. Where we came together to sort out and talk over the day, enjoying a good hot meal and the conversations and time spent together which was even more important than the food we were eating.
Today our youngest daughter Lizi and I are off on a new adventure with social media. Lizi being well grounded in social media and the lifestyle of the food nanny made it a perfect match for us to move forward together. Our goal is to help families understand the importance of family dinnertime and cooking great food!! Anyone can do it if they have the desire!! We are here to help you connect with your family over yummy nutritional meals!
