Fun DIY Menu for your Kitchen

I cannot tell you how many times my husband has come home from work and him ask me what we’re having for dinner… which I replied, “I haven’t thought of it yet.” I’m a stay at home mom, so I cook, clean, take care of our kids and I’m a blogger, so I’m always on the go! So when I heard about this DIY project, I HAD to jump on board with it!

How neat is this? I went to a church event last night with the women of our ward. We were asked to bring an 8×10 photo frame and the plan was to talk about table etiquette and the importance of it. They had “Weekly Menu Plan” printed color papers on the table for us to put in our frames. It’s SUCH a simple DIY project when you don’t have a whiteboard or chalkboard in your kitchen.

It’s easy to clean off each week, so we don’t have to waste paper. And as a mother of 4, it’s extremely important for me to be organized in every way possible.

What you need:

8×10 frame of your choice

color paper with the days of the week listed

A dry erase marker

This is such an easy project, that I feel almost dumb that I hadn’t thought of it before. Writing on the glass works well, and I can simply wipe it off when I’m done with the week. I was also able to decorate it just a little bit with the hearts and dots…and it’s awesome that I can change it up when I want.




  1. What a great idea! My husband asks the same and I have no idea what to cook, This would be a great idea to get organized in kitchen :D. Will pin it for later! Thanks for sharing!

  2. That’s a great little project!
    I have a weekly one that I use with the dayhome but nothing fancy like that for dinners.
    How did your hubby take to it?

  3. I’ve often tried of doing this myself but I can’t bring myself to actually *cook* what I had written down for each day.. I’m a lazy cook! 🙁 Maybe once I have kids, I’ll change my ways.

    Regardless, it’s a smart, organized project and I always like those.

  4. I love this idea, its so much cuter and can fit into any decor! This is totally going to happen at my house, and I am going to invest a small amount to use this as a gift idea also!

  5. I was just talking about needing something like this! Thanks for the awesome idea! courtafi2138 at gmail dot com
