A few months ago I shared how my family has reduced our waste of food by meal planning. One of the strategies I shared was to create a menu board for the kitchen. I followed the directions as posted HERE and made my own board.
I am thrilled with the results. I love our menu board! All I have to do is change the paper in the frame and it gives the menu a whole new look! I’ve already had several compliments about it. I also love it because now I have a clear reminder of what’s for dinner (so I always remember to transfer the meat from the freezer to the fridge the day before it’s scheduled to be prepared).
In addition, I love that I don’t have to carry that weekly menu in my brain (having a baby in the house has given me a bit of the old brain vacuum syndrome). It has also helped in a way that did not expect… my husband sees what’s on the menu and he will often start the dinner for us (how great is that?)!
