Each week, I used to sit down and ask for meal suggestions, then grab the recipes and write out a list, then try to remember what else we might need, but that got old quickly. Now I've done all that work in advance. I have 5 weeks of our favorite meals and their shopping lists printed, and I keep them nearby with my recipes. We just choose a week that sounds good, grab that list, and go shop! If we get bored of these menus, we'll just add more. But it's so convenient to have these menus AND the shopping lists already printed. Now we're happy campers (literally)!
I wanted a pretty way to display our menu and saw many on Pinterest, but they were too elaborate or had too many parts. I just needed to see the week's menu and have a place to note things we ran out of that weren't on the shopping list. So, being a good digital scrapbooker, I figured I'd do it myself, digitally! And it was even easier than I thought. I created this in Photoshop, printed at 8x10 on photo paper, taped it to the cabinet, and just added real sticky notes and this week's menu!
Recipe Book Megakit (which is on sale for $5.99 Wednesday 5/16 only!) and the Urban Grunge Megakit from DSP. Super easy and such a fun project! (If you need help with digital scrapbooking, DSP's your place!)
Something really cool is we have an actual cookie sheet close to this on the cabinet to hold magnets and recipes, so it fits right in. It's so pretty I may have to put it on the outside of the cabinet door instead of the inside!
Recipe Book kit is so good it still looks like a real cookie sheet! It's just photo paper.
Want to win the Recipe Book Megakit to create one (or great scrapbook pages or recipe cards)?
What about a printable blank page like this that's ready for your menu?
Okay! Share this post on Pinterest (or repin this), Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or your blog and leave a comment here for each (with your email). Use the links below this post for easy sharing.
