Analysis of Favorite Meals

I am married to an analytic thinker.  When I ask him what some of his favorite meals are, he starts a spreadsheet, lists common meals, and assigns a rating.  I added my ratings and then we asked the 3 oldest to rate the meals.  This is what we came up with.

This actually provides us with a pretty ‘intelligent’ list for a meal plan. We need to make sure we captured all our favorites. We’re simple. We’re actually all picky (in such different ways… notice #1’s were soup for me… 3’s for Jimmy). Evenings go so much smoother when I have a meal plan, stick to it, and make sure I prep in the morning or early afternoon. Sigh… this is my goal that rarely happens. But I’ll keep plugging along because I know it creates a better evening routine for our family.

    Wow, I love this, too! I never took a poll, just relied on anecdotal/ever changing evidence based on my observations alone. We just spent the last 6 weeks with filled out meal plans and much better preparation on some of the days. I still need more family participation on my work days, but it even helps me with planning groceries to have a rough idea of what we will be eating.

    Another thought, this really shows the individual preferences people have. I can’t imagine anyone not LOVING potato soup (maybe ya hafta grow up in Idaho!), and I honestly have never eaten tomato almond pesto, then we have a little girl who always loved chili. To each his own, for sure!

    Interesting post!
