Menu Board

This project took me way too long to finish, but I can finally say it is done!
 This is actually a Pinterest inspired project found here. My sisters and I got together one afternoon to put them together. Two months later...I finally finished mine.
One of my sisters had the great idea of adding the kids' kitchen jobs at the bottom.
 
To make meal planning even easier, we decided to add side dishes to each meal. Meals are also grouped by color so I can easily find quick meals, crock pot meals, etc.
The pockets are for the meal tags. The meals start in the bottom and move to the top once I have made them. When most of them are in the top pocket, I can move them all back to the bottom and start over again.
I am really excited about how it turned out and I really hope it will help me do better at planning meals.
 
So, what's for dinner at your house?

I LOVE this on about a hundred different levels. I think I need to step up my scrap paper menu/grocery list system and come up with something a little more sophisticated. This is fantastic!
