Pretty Menu Planner
My brilliantly-talented friend A came across these two images on Pinterest. Since we talk about menu planning every other week in our Tuesday morning moms' group, she told us about it, and many of us wanted to try it! So this week, we all brought our crafting stuff and got busy!
Basically, this pretty menu-planning board takes all the hard work out of a job that most of us always mean to do but never get around to. The top pocket holds cards with all my usual meals written on them, plus a few new ones. Each week, all I have to do is chose seven meals clip them onto the appropriate day, and my meals are planned! Eventually I want to write the ingredients on the back of each card for an almost instant shopping list.
In my version, I hot-glued the pockets and the "menu" on top of the glass. Most of my friends just removed it. I didn't want to have to find a place to store a sheet of glass.
