Now that you’ve made your cute menu display and organized your days into themes, now it’s time to move on to our final step in this series:
My recipe box also has tabbed dividers of the themed days of the week- which makes it easy to flip through while planning my menu.
2. Find a recipe for Mexican Monday by looking in the file box or the “Favorite Recipes” notebook under the tab “Mexican”. Continue in this fashion finding a meal for every day of the week. Use the “Recipes to Try” notebook to find a meal for “What’s New Wednesday”.
3. Make a grocery list.
4. Go shopping.
5. Eat dinner.
6. Live happily ever after.
Again, because my days have a theme, the guesswork is almost done for me. And because my recipes are organized by theme, I can easily flip to the meal ideas for that theme and choose among tons of options!
Ta-Da! Easy, yummy meals in a wide variety! Meal planning is only going to get easier for you, I promise!
