This is how I plan our meals each week.. I go through my fridge, freezer and pantry and see what I have on hand, then I go through the weekly ad for Sunflower Market and see what’s on sale and in season (usually the same things!)  and go from there. When I’m shopping if there’s a great sale on something not on my list, I ‘ll usually buy it and freeze or store it for the future. This makes meal planning simpler but also fun because we eat in season.

I’ll be following up with posts for each meal (hopefully) so stay tuned!
