I can't believe it took me over a year to think of this...
Remember, oh, about 10,000 years ago when I told you that I use Google Calendar for meal planning? Well, I do. Sometimes. When I'm feeling organized and I have the luxury of sitting down for an hour to plan out what we're going to eat and make a grocery list. Usually I'm racing through the grocery store with two screaming kids, grabbing anything that looks like they might eat it, and rushing out before anyone recognizes me.
Today, though, BJ's taking the kids to Brandon's to play, and I will have several HOURS all to myself... bliss... so I was sitting here making my menu plan and I had this genius thought.
If I set everything up to repeat yearly, and I'm really good about meal planning for a year, then I will NEVER have to do it AGAIN!
I said something to BJ, and he said, "Wow, that's sad..."
"Eating the same things, year after year..." (I'm not sure what he thinks we do now!)
"Um, you wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't said something," I retorted.
"True," he said, "But I still think it's sad."
"That's because you don't do the meal planning!" I said, as I set up all my old meals to repeat yearly.
I put the recipe in the "description" part of the event on Gcal, anyway, so most of the recipes I used last year are already there.
Duh. Duh duh duh.
Would anyone be interested in sharing my Gcal menu planning via Google Calendar? If so, drop me an e-mail.
