Menu Planning Form – Free Download

January 19th, 2009

Here is a menu planning form that I use when I’m planning out my menu for the week. The top half has a weekly calender with space for Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner Menus. It also has space at the bottom to list all the ingredients that you need to get at the store. A pretty simple and straightforward menu planner that also looks great on your fridge or magnet board!

I also have a slightly different version of the form that does not have the meals for each day broken up.

    Love these. But they don’t seem to be editable and you can’t save a copy of the finished document. I’d really like to save them do I can put them into s rotation. Also DH and I prep different meals for our little boy because we are on weight watchers. If I could alter the text size I could fit both on one planner.

    Hi Jen

    Thank you so much for producing this – I actually was going to make one this week for my family, but I discovered this quite by chance by visiting ‘Today’s Creative Blog’. I was completely gobsmacked to find just the thing without even looking… your generousity shows no bounds – thank you so much for sharing and saving me (and by the look of it, hundreds of others) the chore of creating one ourselves.

    Thank you once again
