This summer was crazy, like two weddings, a mission homecoming, and on vacation for half of it, crazy. Now that it’s fall and we’re finally going to be home for more than a week at a time, it’s time to start getting into a routine. A routine that includes us cooking at least a couple of times a week. The DIY weekly menu board I made using my cool and colorful new Sharpie Pens this weekend is the first step to getting into that routine.

Before K was born, my husband and I cooked fairly often. Richie cooked more than I did, but I would at least cook once or twice a week. Now? Our conversation after K goes to bed every night is not what are we going to eat for dinner but rather where because we eat out that often. Our new goal is to sit down on Sunday night and put together a meal plan for the week so that I can shop on Monday, and we know what we are having for dinner. Because honestly, eating out every night is not only unhealthy, it’s really expensive. And it gets boring to eat from the same five places over and over again.
This was one of the easiest projects to make, and I love how it turned out. Here’s how I made it.
