A Spoonful of Honey and A Cup of Organization

Family Meal Planning Made Simple and Sweet

To celebrate Back To School, I’ve designed a meal plan this week to add a little sweetness and a lot of simplicity to your routine.

I start the week with Crispy Honey Chicken and a One-Minute Honey Dipping Sauce served with Buttered Corn on Cob and Spiced Apples.

After pounding my chicken flat, I use a beer batter mixed with honey for bit of sweetness.

Pound chicken with a meat tenderizer between two pieces of plastic wrap

 

Use beer or water to mix the batter along with a few squirts of honey.

You don't have to use beer if you don't want, but it does give it more flavor

 

Fry in canola or vegetable oil until crispy-honey brown.

Apples For Dinner?

Why not.  Apples are healthy and delicious, and make a perfect side-dish to this Crispy Honey Chicken.

Meal Planning Made Simple

Using cooking methods I like to call “Reusing Your Time” and “Reincarnating The Leftover” will save you a lot of time and money during the hectic week.

So, cooking more chicken than we need tonight and storing it in an airtight container in the refrigerator gives us a head start later on in the week when we reincarnate it into Chicken with Lemon Sauce.

It took me four attempts to perfect my recipe for lemon sauce. The results- delicious!

Family Dinners for Less Than $100 a Week

Herb Marinated Flank Steak

When I began writing The Organized Cook, my goal was to save as much time as possible in the kitchen.  As a busy mom of four,

one child with special needs, I needed to prepare dinner as efficiently as possible while creating healthy, delicious balanced meals for my family.

By creating a balanced menu each week using my special algorithm that reuses my time, ingredients and leftovers, what I found was that I was spending very little on my grocery bill.

After finishing The Organized Cook, I found that each of my Weekly Meal Plan menus will feed a family of four or five dinner for a week for about $100 a week- and most often less than $100 a week.  That’s less than what it costs to eat out just one night!

The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate that families who eat dinner at home save 50% in dinner costs than families who mostly eat out.  Combine that savings with other techniques like menu planning through The Organized Cook and families can slash their food budget even more.

The Organized Cook is a monthly subscription that provides a Weekly Meal Plan including menu, grocery shopping list, easy-to-follow instructions and lots of time and money-saving tips.
