What's For Dinner? Planner

Linen Fabric Adhered with Multi-Medium to Black Chipboard
This is more a post about being organized when it comes to mealtime than it is about paper or fiber arts.  However, the tie in is that I made my own meal planner and bound it with the Cinch. :-)
The first page on the inside is a reference list that I typed many of my cookbooks and favorite recipe websites into.  It wouldn't Have to be printed and bound.  But I like books!
List of Cookbooks and Recipe Websites
Pictured below is the meal planning document that I created. It has two weeks worth of dinners on each side of the page.  I printed 13 copies on inexpensive card stock - double-sided - so that it would make a year's worth of dinners for the planner.

This video explains the planner in a little more detail:

The documents were printed 'landscape' so that they would fit on the page horizontally.  You may have to tweak them a bit to get them to print the way you like.

Here is the Meal Planner Excel document that I created:

Here is the Recipe Resource Excel document that I modified from the Microsoft website:
