Back to school means back to a routine… and eating at home.

I dread grocery shopping each week.  Pulling out the cookbooks, planning the meals, making the list… it was such a chore.  So, I created this weekly menu board system with a magnetic board from IKEA and some vinyl.

I wrote all of our recipes on index cards.  One side has the name.  The other side lists all of the ingredients needed at the grocery store for that meal.  Each week, I pick out meals and sides from the index cards.  Then, I flip them over and add the ingredients to my list.

Then, we display our meals on the pantry door.
