Menu Planning Inspiration

I’m always on the lookout for kid-friendly and interesting ideas for the whole family. Recently I found a Weeknight Meal Planner on Cooking Light. You drag and drop 5 Dishes and then you have a visual meal plan.

Another site I often use that is great for kosher meal planning is Supercook. I love having all of my pantry items listed and then being able to choose which items I don’t want. When I have an ingredient that has sat too long in the pantry or refrigerator, it’s one of the first places I go for inspiration.

I am starting to plan December and using the inspiration from Kosher on a Budget, I am going to stick with a couple routines for December and just vary it a little bit. At school Tuesdays and Thursdays are meat days, so I try to aim to do dairy on those evenings.
