Welcome to The Meal Planning Moms!
Jennifer Kahn and Ira Lapsley - The Meal Planning Moms
We are busy moms who love to cook, and want to feed our families healthy, delicious food. We’ve found that creating weekly menus decreases the stress of figuring out what to make for dinner when everyone’s already tired and hungry, makes cooking dinner more enjoyable, and allows us to keep what our families are eating relatively healthy by decreasing processed food, fast food and take-out. We’ll share our weekly menus, along with grocery lists, with you, and along the way we’ll throw in dinner parties, delicious breakfast ideas, our favorite desserts, and more.
Neither Jennifer nor Ira have any professional culinary experience, but we do have something a lot of you have: busy lives, husbands, children, community responsibilities and jobs. And, we’ve loved food – reading about it, thinking about it, cooking it and eating it – for pretty much since we can remember. Some of Ira’s earliest memories include pulling apart and eating crabs, and her mother teaching her how to make roux; Jennifer drives around town running errands while making up future dinner party menus in her head. We’ve also discovered, talking to neighbors and friends, that a lot of people feel pure panic when it gets close to dinner time, trying to figure out what to make when everyone’s already hungry and tired. Being pretty Type – A, we’ve always made weekly menus and grocery lists, which makes dinner time much less stressful, cooking much more enjoyable, and dinner generally healthier and tastier than take-out or prepared foods from the supermarket freezer section.
So, leave the meal-planning to us, and check in often to catch the week’s menu, along with a grocery list. Look, too, for dinner party menus, delicious desserts, food adventures, life adventures, healthy breakfast items, and more!
