    Don't wait until you've reached your goal to be proud of yourself. Be proud of every step you take toward reaching that goal.

Create A Master Meal Planning List

Having my Master Meal Planning List typed or printed and posted on my fridge is a great visual aid for me when trying to plan out what to cook for our weekly dinners. It also helps me with building my pantry and freezer inventory. When creating your list, keep in mind all the meals your family enjoy and jot them down. For one month, you can start out with 10 to 20 meals and add or rotate different meals in as your family chooses.

Here’s my new full Master Meal Planning List:

  • Sloppy Joe Squares
  • Golden Macaroni and Cheese
  • Cheeseburger Meat Loaf with garlic mashed potatoes
  • Spicy-Sweet Meat Loaves
  • Spaghetti and Meatballs
  • Chunky Steak and Vegetable Soup
