If you checked out the Tip Tuesday post from yesterday, you know that I’m working to organize recipes to break up that meal plan monotony. When I made the plan this past weekend, it was oh so easy to consider falling back down that slippery slope of the meal plan monotony rut.
But I knew I couldn’t let that happen. Plus, I had several recipes that I had originally planned for the previous week that really needed to see the light of day.
I decided I needed to really make it easy for myself and form a list from the recipes that I had already started investigating on various blogs, to organize that list using the parameters I mentioned yesterday: main protein, preparation, type, and website.
Here is my first (of hopefully many) of those organized, coded lists. The code is found on the Tip Tuesday post.
