ABC Friday - Dry Erase Weekly Meal Planner

Hi everyone! Kim T here for "Anything but a card Friday" and I decided to try something a little different this week! I had an extra 8x10" frame laying around my craft room so decided to kill 2 birds with one stone and make a project as well as to help myself in my weekly meal planning! (The picture below is a photo of the card without the glass so that you could see some of the details)

I am forever plagued but losing the my weekly meal planning lists and because I don't particularly enjoy meal planning in general, there is nothing worse than having to do it twice in one week! So I made this pretty dry erase board meal planner using the Bon Appetit set and my computer :D I created the little weekly calendar and banners on my computer and combined it with my coloured chef whom I have affectionately named Chef Boyardee :D

Did you know that glass acts beautifully as a dry erase board? So framed works of art/cards are the perfect use for creating beautiful dry erase boards. This one will sit on my kitchen island and now I won't have to go looking for stray lists that have grown legs and walked away all by themselves and best of all it's re-usable!

Thanks for coming by today and if you decide to make one of your own, link it here so that we can see too :D


  1. Great job. So creative!!! I will have to do one. Thanks:)

  2. What a great idea. This turned out beautifully. I used to do the paper meal planning when my kids were home. It was a pain, but it was a real life-saver and money saver. When I planned the meals like this, I didn't have nearly so many things that had to be thrown away. although I never planned breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just dinners. The glass dry erase is a good idea. I never would have thought of that.

  3. Great project, Kim! This set is perfect for the menu planner.

  4. Great weekly menu the cute little chef.

  5. LOVE this!!! and your little chef is too fun :)
