Dinner Decision Maker
I admit I am not a great cook and I am even worse at deciding what to have for dinner. I have been inspired by a few different blog posts of a dinner calendar. Honestly that is to big of a commitment for me. After much contemplation on how I can become a better dinner maker I have decided all I needed help with is ideas of what to make for dinner. I have plenty of cookbooks and recipes but I needed ones my family would eat. So I went through the cookbooks and recipes I used the most. I used regular cardstock and cut them into strips all the same color. I then wrote all main dishes I knew I would have stuff for on a regular basis, fairly simple dishes and ones we would eat, (at least my husband and I). I also wrote out names of green salads and jello salads for those Sunday dishes I could share with our extended family when needed.
I then put together this cute little box made out of three pieces of 4x6 cardstock paper so I could divide up my meals and salads and also a place where I could put "have made" dishes so I wouldn't be doing the same dishes over and over again.
