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!


Download this file and enjoy (for personal use only). Please tell your friends to come visit the site and download their own file. I would love a comment if you do download!

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

    I am trying to get this meal planning thing down to a better science in my house, so I am featuring different ones in a blog post I’m working on. I will mention yours and see if I can get this to be a consistent thing for me. It needs to be for sure! Thanks so much. 🙂

    Really like the meal planning divided into breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Is there a way to make the scheme a different color? It’s quite light when I print it and somewhat difficult to read. Thank you for this!!

    I really like this template. I am not sure how to change the color from yellow after I download the template. When I print it out it is to light to see? What am I doing wrong?
