We have the food in the house to make something, it just needed to be thawed out or started earlier than 5:00. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem. There are so many CUTE menu board ideas out there. My issue was finding a place in my kitchen to put one up!
I decided to create my own layout for a weekly menu board and then decide how I could best utilize it in my own kitchen.
No counter or wall space: tape a sheet protector pocket to the inside of a cabinet door, slip one of these printables in there and using a dry erase marker, keep track of your weekly menu plan.
If you have counter space: put it in a cute frame and keep it by your stove.
Or you can use command stripes and attach the frame directly to your fridge.this menu board idea on pinterest, I knew this would work perfect for me.
I found an empty crayon box and covered it with scrapbook paper, mod podge and washi tape. I attached a magent on the back and stuck it on my new magnet board. (remember I told you had big plans for that magnet board!)
Then I cut out coordinating strips to go along with the weekly menu printable I chose, to write down my meal ideas. I added some peel and stick magnets to the backs of these so I could easily change them around in my meal plan.
I put my weekly menu plan on my magnet board, my recipe holder and planned my meals for the week. I think I will laminate my recipe cards so they will last a little longer, but I love not having to come up with recipe ideas!
Since I went to all the trouble of making this for my own home, I thought I would share with you too.
Feel free to print these out (up to 8x10) and use them for your own weekly menu planning.

So far this works for us.
