Mama Must-Haves: Help in the Kitchen

If you've read this post, you know that I'm not exactly a whiz in the kitchen. Some nights dinner is surprisingly awesome, while other nights I wish I could have a do-over. (Note to self: read the entire recipe before starting to cook. Not doing this has resulted in way too many "two-course meals" because I didn't read the recipe beforehand.) Since I'm still learning, I thought I'd share some tips that I've found to be helpful!

- A cute, free, printable dinner menu for the week! This baby is on my fridge already. Many other menu planners have slots for breakfast & lunch, but I like that this one is specifically for dinners.

- As the title of this article says, The Ultimate Food Storage Guide. Great for if you're asking yourself, "is it ok to eat those potatoes that are growing tiny limbs?" and more.

- Some really helpful tips for how to stay organized in the kitchen (even as you cook!) I wish I would have read this the other night...

- Everyone could do well to read this - how to eat well on a budget

- The above-mentioned link talks about buying produce in season. Here's a handy little chart for when certain produce is in season! (This probably only applies to the U.S.)

If you have any other great kitchen or meal-planning tips, let me know!
