advance meal planning. we all know its benefits but its not always much fun. i thought i'd copy some of the crafty bloggers and whip up my own menu board and it has livened up my meal planning and made me actually WANT to look at what i need to cook. a big factor in choosing this particular type of board for our family was that it uses a dry-erase marker. see, sometimes my plan doesn't line up with real life. sometimes stuffed zucchini just isn't in the schedule that day and grabbing a hot 'n ready is:) so i just whip out my little marker and make a switcheroo. still meals are planned and ingredients are used, just maybe on a different day.
my friend liz loves paris and just had a birthday so i thought she might like a little flair to her planning as well. have i convinced you yet? meal plan, i tell you!
