This Easy Family Menu the perfect way to plan meals for a family. It’s so easy you’ll be cooking a roast one day, and repurposing the leftovers and making it into two brand new meals! Cook once, eat twice!
Meal planning can be a little overwhelming. Heck, the whole idea of having to get dinner on the table five nights this week is overwhelming.
Take a deep breath! I’ve totally got you covered and I’m going to show you exactly how to make dinner not only EASY, but exciting again!
My favorite menu planning trick is to cook once, and eat twice, or three times! It’s basically doing batch work in the kitchen. And it saves SOOOOO much time!
So, for this Easy Family Menu we’re going to make roast beef and then turn it into not just one, but two other meals! That’s three meals out of one roast beef! It’s the BEST!
I always build my family menus around cooking meat once, and using the leftovers in at least two other recipes! I have a feeling you’re going to get hooked on this method!
