Meal Plan #7: Recipes And Strategies For Weeknight Success!

On Episode #7 of my podcast, TMI with Christine, I talk with Emily from Emily and Clark’s Adventure about meal-planning when you live on a small antique boat that is travelling around the world. That inspires me to dive into how having systems helps with meal-planning and time-management. This week’s meal plan shows off some great systems and strategies you can try. It’s a fun and delicious plan that your whole family will love!
