Are you tired of hearing, “what’s for dinner?” Are you tired of saying, “I don’t know, what are you making?”
I can’t promise someone else will cook and I can’t promise you’ll be in the running for dinner-maker-of-the-year, but I can promise you can have a cute menu planning board. Nothing can stop you now!
Guys, this is super easy if you have the right tools.
1. Print out this awesome chalkboard-esque menu planner. Go here. I printed a 10 x 14 at Costco.
2. Find a picture frame with glass. I bought mine from Hobby Lobby.
3. Paint the frame. I used Peacock Tail by Behr and Martha Stewarts Metallic Glaze in Black Coffee. TIP: If you’re going to use glaze make sure you have a frame with a lot of detail otherwise it will just muddy up your paint color.
Once you’ve painted your frame and inserted your menu printable, you’re ready to start planning!
I bought a pack of dry erase markers called Expo Neon. The colors in the pack are neon blue, pink, yellow, and orange.
Has anyone tried a menu planning board? Has it been helpful?
UPDATE: I had a question about whether the dry erase markers are legible against the black chalkboard print. I’ve never tried regular dry erase markers so I can’t say but here’s a few pics of what my neon dry erase markers look like. And no, we aren’t having meatloaf everyday. But that might be a good April Fools week menu planning trick.
