Check the weather, plan your meals

Hey Mama! This is Robin Camarote with your Working Mom Tip of the Day.    

Check the weather, plan your meals    Creating a weekly meal plan cuts down on last minute decisions and stops at the grocery store. Dinner becomes one less thing to think about which, of course, saves time. I used to struggle with meal planning because I didn't know what I'd be in the mood to eat. What helps me now is a quick check of the 5-day weather forecast. Rain, sunshine, and temperature have a big impact on what I want to eat. For example, a lot of people like soup on chilly, rainy days. The weather will help narrow down your options and ensure you're not planning to grill-out during a downpour.
