Today we are going to take one baby step towards meal planning. πŸ₯—πŸ² A few days ago, we started an afternoon routine where we started cooking dinner. So today, earlier in the afternoon, perhaps after eating lunch, we are going to start to make a plan for dinner. I also added one step that helps you get towards meal planning – tune in to today's podcast episode to hear it (link below)!

We will learn how to plan a whole menu later on and will cheer each other on to stick to it (because it is SO helpful!). But for now, the baby step is, what's for dinner tonight? So tell me, what do you plan to make for dinner tonight? β€‹ If you need to defrost anything from the freezer, go ahead and get that out now so it's ready for later!

I'll be sharing my weekly menu plan in my Facebook group, The Merry Messy Moms Group, if you want to see it!
