It's Menu Plan Monday and I'm recovering from Family Weekend right now. Luckily I have a plan! Yes, I'm auto posting so that I don't even have to think about dinner on our ride home. Do you do that? I never used to. Busy weekends or vacations were the biggest culprits when it came to getting off track for the meal planning, and we'd be kicking ourselves for grabbing fast food or eating out again after an already not-so-healthy weekend.
However, being in the menu planning habit has really helped start Monday after vacation on the right foot. I'll come back from Tuscaloosa with a simple dinner planned for Sunday and the ingredients already on hand. My grocery list will be made so that I can just grab it and go Monday morning - no excuses for putting it off. I even did some extra laundry last week so that we could just enjoy our trip and not have any stress about re-entry. Also, I pre-wrote this blog post. Score!
