{Like Merchants Ships} Mastering Your Menus

Anchors Aweigh!! 

Hello, friends! 

It’s been a few years since we ran the “Like Merchant’s Ships - Mastering your Menus” challenge, so I thought it might be fun to revisit it.   Over the next number of weeks and months we are going to be talking about menu planning, grocery shopping, food preparation & storage, hospitality and much more. Our final project will be a Captain’s Log --a beautiful, personalized center where you will be able to access everything from your menus and shopping lists to recipes and inspiration. It will be an invaluable tool when you’re asked that ever present question…. “What’s for dinner?? (or lunch, or breakfast, or snack!!).  The “Captain’s Log” I put together when we first ran the challenge is looking a little shabby and could use a makeover!  Perhaps yours could too!

So - how do we begin?  Every other Wednesday I will post a TIP and a CHALLENGE and together we will work throughout the year to put together four weeks (or more!) of menus, to do lists, shopping lists and recipes!!  

Here are some things you might want to collect before we get started…

Recipes for your favorite dishes
A large 3 ring binder
Page protectors
Some loose leaf paper, or a section in your planner set aside for the lists we’ll be making when we start planning. : )

Ready to begin? Me, too!! I’ll see you on Wednesday, February 18th to get started in earnest.  Be sure that you are following the blog or signed up to receive our blog posts by email so you don't miss a post!
