Here is my menu plan for the week of Monday 23.1.12 to 29.1.12.
I have started using the new menu saving, recipe saving, grocery saving, software from zip list. How fantastic, something this awesome, when it comes to saving time with organizing what’s for dinner, recipe storage, shopping lists, and help with shopping, is available to us for free. Thanks to the wonderful people from Zip List, you guys truly are making organizing dinner much easier for all of us.
So here’s my menu plan, can’t wait to hear about yours, in the comments, or through joining our summertime blog hop.
Meals Monday to Sunday
- Bacon, Eggs and Baked Beans
The Food Network
Taste of Home
I have copied and pasted my menu selection from my zip box, the menu plan is set out a lot nicer in the application. I’ll include a picture for you shortly, where you can see the eg: Food.com, underneath my meal selection, that is a link to the recipe, and the site, which I have chosen the recipe from. If I was checking my menu plan on my iphone or my computer, and I needed the recipe for one of the selections, I just double click on the link and the recipe comes up.
Grocery List Template
- 1 cup heavy cream
Condiments, Dressings & Oils
- 1 cup of honey
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Organizing Grocery List Templates
Zip List also allows you to make up and store other grocery list templates. You can actually organize a grocery template for your other weekly shopping. Not only for the other products you need from your super market, but for any type of shopping you need a reminder to do. You can add the items to your one list which has already been made for your weeks dinners or, you can make a new list, I called mine, regular weekly shopping list. Here I listed all the items I buy every week. I added a section also called miscellaneous, which is for one off type items. If I wanted I could of made another list called for example one off purchases, and added any of the one off items I was needing to that list. Zip List allows you to store as many different shopping lists as you might require. They even have organized templates for you, which of course you can edit, that include lists for camping, back to school items all types of different shopping lists.
Organizing Dinner and the Shopping List
All up it only took about twenty minutes to set up the whole system. Next time i’m certain it will be a much quicker exercise because my zip list recipe box is already set up and my regular grocery list has already been added. What a great idea and this really does make organizing what’s for dinner fun instead of a chore. You can print your lists out if you don’t have a iphone or an android phone. So what are you waiting for. Follow the link to Zip List, open an account and away you go. Don’t forget to call back and let us know what’s on the menu at your place next week.
