As flighty as I can be at times, I can also be just as ... ahem ... uptight. I like lists. I like to plan. I love surprises but not at 5 o'clock when I'm trying to figure out dinner (especially when you've been snowed in and can't get to the store with out calling in reinforcements).
I've come up with system that works for me and I hope will work for you too. I sit down with my cook books and come up with a menu for two weeks at a time. I like to have a plan for my cilantro or my left over chicken. I don't want our Mustgo (what ever 'must go' from the fridge) to go to waste. I find the more often I am at the grocery store, the more I spend thus the two week plan.
So here's what I came up with.
I like to print these on 5 X 8 note cards. The size is just right to post on the fridge and to carry in the store.
The grocery list is arranged in the order of my local Wal-Mart so it makes my 'journey' a little shorter.
I have a few options for you to download. Since they are not PDF documents (they are in Word) feel free to tweek these to suit your own needs. Here are the links:
So ... what's for supper?
