Back in the day, when I worked in a cube and had a two-hour round-trip commute, I used to spend the last 15 minutes of my workday scanning the internet for a recipe to make for dinner.

This loose-knit meal planning system worked well because I got to leave work around 3:00 pm, giving me enough time to stop at the grocery store to grab the necessary ingredients. I’d make tasty seafood dishes and spicy Mexican food, and I enjoyed creating delicious meals.

Fast forward to the present time — I hate cooking and menu planning!

Menu Planning Services for Moms Who Hate to Cook.

Working from home has a TON of perks. However, since I don’t have a daily commute, and I batch my errands to be more productive, I only make it to the grocery store once a week. So, this means I have to be super organized with meal planning and my grocery list.

But, when Sunday night rolls around, the last thing I want to do is take an hour out of my busy schedule to sit down and meal plan. The truth is that I hate menu planning, and I hate cooking. At the end of a busy day, I just don’t want to take 60 minutes to cook a meal that’s eaten in 10 minutes, with another 20-30 minutes of cleanup. Ahhhh, I dread it.

Over the past few years, I’ve tried a lot of different solutions to solve my menu planning problem, and I’ve discovered a lot of great options for moms who hate cooking and menu planning.
