Crystal from Crystal & Co is a mom to five boys and is a huge believer in easy recipes. Over on her mommy resource site she shares with her readers an index of over 50 easy recipes plus other resources to help you with your menu planning. Her ebook titled, How to Meal Plan, A Step by Step Guide for Busy Moms is a great ebook to help you get dinner on the table every night. Of course it won’t actually prepare your meals for you but it does provide tips, recipes and printables to get you going. I honestly think menu planning is one of the first places to start on your organizational journey but I know it’s not easy for everyone to implement. Whether you are a menu planner newbie or simply need a menu plan refresher, this ebook can help!
Also if you are stumped with what to make for dinner each night and limited on time (who isn’t?!) then be sure to head on over to Crystal’s easy recipe index for inspiration!
