Cooking Tips: 
Menu Planning



Take a week or so to brainstorm your family’s favorite meals.  Start a 
list and maybe post it in a prominent place – such as your refrigerator 
door, so all family members can add things to the list as they think of 
them.   


Once you have a list of favorites, sit down and write the days of the 
week on a sheet of paper.  For each day assign one family favorite 
meal.  Don’t forget to add side dishes also.  It is good at this point to 
look at the family calendar as well. This will help you be sure to not 
plan something that takes an hour to prepare if you have to be 
somewhere early in the evening.  Or maybe John will be gone one 
night for dinner, and there is a specific meal that everyone likes 
except John.  You can plan that meal for the evening he is away.  Or 
maybe you have been invited out one evening – you certainly don’t 
need to plan a meal for that night if that is the case.  Also decide if 
you want to plan in a leftover night sometime during the week.   



1) Get Dinner On The Table Faster
2) Run To The Store Less Often

3) You’ll Eat Better
4) It Saves You Money
5) It Saves You Time 
6) Quality Family Time

7) It Is Easy
