We mostly wing it.

But we were only home in ohio for 3 days so i ended doing a meal plan.

No. We decided just before cooking it. What we feel like on the night. Unless it's a roast dinner, we usually plan for that. But nothing is planned until I look at the clock and say what do you want for dinner? And  I go and start cooking.
I think menu plans are boring and how do you know what you're going to feel like? NO way never planning a weekly menu.. ever.

I finally got back into it after a year and a half of not having time. It'll be especially valuable when DD starts school in 2 weeks. Good, healthy meals, and the best part? I'll actually have time to prepare them and make them right.

I need to start. Especially when I start my Carb Cycling plan. Plus winging it has been kind of hard on our budget.

I don't meal plan days in advance but I wouldn't consider what I do "winging" it either.

I guess I just generally have an idea of what is in my fridge and freezer and know what I have for the next few days or so.

I don't shop around a meal plan though. I buy what's on sale and plan meals around what I can get.
