If you are anything like me 2020 was a blur and 2021 feels like it is still 2020. But, this fall I felt like I was beginning to come out of the fog.

As I reflect on where Feed Your Family Tonight began and where it is now, I feel like I have come full circle. Weeknight dinner success is not about the recipes, it is about time management. 

I have said this for years, but with the new Feed Your Family Tonight Meal Planning System, I have a way to teach the time management piece.

The “aha” moment is that the key is to look at the “prep” time and the “cook” time in recipes as separate tasks. They don’t have to be done at the same time. In fact, doing them at different times can be the key to getting dinner on the table with less effort.

10 minutes planning at the beginning of the week can save your hours of execution when fixing dinner. If you plan well you will have more variety and much less effort in the kitchen, (Who doesn’t want that?)
