A Month of Dinners: Menu Plan for June

In an attempt to make my life a little easier, I'm planning all of our dinners for June at once.

Menu-Plan-June-tasteasyougo.com

When I share our monthly menu plans, I like to do so on the last day of the month (i.e. sharing the menu plan for May on April 30). That way, it feels like I'm slightly ahead of the game. But late last night, while weeding through emails, I realized I hadn't written up the menu plan for June yet.

I considered giving myself a pass this time. Especially since it's been a little tough around here lately. Though, I knew that delaying the menu plan post, even by just one day, would throw me off my game... And it would open the door to more excuses.

So I set a timer and gave myself the challenge to Get. It. Done.
