Menu Plan August 14-20

Well, what do you think of my brand new DIY menu board? I've seen these all over the internet, so I can't really credit any one person for the idea. I was simply going to use an old 11x14 frame, but my husband stepped in and created a custom frame for me. I did use the cardboard backing from the old frame, as well as the glass. You definitely need glass so you can write your weekly menus with a dry erase marker!

I adhered scrapbook paper and ribbon to the backing, then I stamped the days of the week title with black ink. Hubby did the rest. I'll post some more detailed pics later this week, so come on back and see what he did if you want to!

Here's the plan:


Tuscan pasta with grilled chicken

Baked egg rolls

Cheeseburger rice, green beans

Crispy honey lime tilapia, broccoli

Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken, rice

Pasta fagioli, artisan bread

If you're not a meal planner, let me encourage you to start this week! Head over to Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday to take a look at dozens of meal plans.
