It's so nice to plan menus for a month and then be done with it. :-) Before I got pregnant this time I was trying once a month was so nice to have meals in the freezer! But now that food and I don't always get a long I'm back to my old method of not trying too many new recipes and planning two weeks at a time. :-)
