Menu Monday for the rest of the year…. almost

December 31st is coming fast! Two months ago, I wanted it to be here.
Now I wish it would slow down a bit and take its time.
December 31st means two things:
  1. The year is over
  2. Election day is 30 days away!
I have family coming to Florida for Christmas for the first time YAY!
I am so excited to have them coming here for a change.
It is bittersweet though because I will miss seeing everyone else not coming =(
So to make my life easier, I made a meal plan for the rest of the year, minus the days family will be here!
I love meal planning! It keeps me on my always shrinking budget and has helped me successfully maintain my weight loss!
It was the secret to my personal success! So if you wanna know what my secret was….. well now you know =)
Hopefully some of these meals will make your nights less stressful.
