A few months ago my smart friend Colleen suggested I start keeping my menus on Google Calendar, a resource I already use to pieces anyway. It was a brillant idea and beat the heck out of my former paper and pencil system.
What I truly love about this is that each week
when I sit down to work on next week's menu, it is already loaded with
lots of meals! Sometimes there will even be 2 or 3 choices for each
meal and I just see what "feels" right this week, then set the other
meals forward a week or two.
I can now do my menus in 10 minutes where it used to take an hour or more.
week I was wishing I could have a peek at someone else's menu; all the
kids were sick and craving comfort food; I was looking for fast
inspiration! Today I thought, "Well, why not share my menus? Maybe
they can help someone out when they feel uninspired."
I have done so. Here is the link to my menu calendar.
It's public so you should have no trouble seeing it. If you click on
"details" you can see a link to any online version of the recipe(s); if I
have a photo, it's attached which you can also see under details. For
an example of both, look at the details under my lunch entry for Feb 2, Bo Luc Lac.
Disclaimer: I only work one week ahead, so menus for two weeks from today will be incomplete and lacking detail!
I would love to see some other folks' menus too! If you'd consider sharing, please be sure to let me know! Happy cooking!
