For Lent this year I have given up fast food and drive-thrus. I don't think that I have ever gone 40 days with out fast food. I don't think I have ever gone a week without stopping through a drive-thru. I know... it's sick, but fast foods and drive-thrus are so easy at the end of the day. I hate getting out of work and then having to think of something to make for supper. So then Andy and I usually have the conversation that goes something like this...
"what do you want for supper?"
"I don't care, whatever you want"
"Well think of something and I'll make it"
"Well, you are the one cooking, so pick out whatever"
and then we can't think of anything that we want to make, so off to McDonald's we go.
In the past I have done meal planning but somewhere along the line I got away from it. I am blaming the yuckyness (which apparently is not a word according to spell-check!) of the dry erase board I used to use.It just wasn't fun to use anymore.
I know everyone has seen a million variations of menu boards all over pinterest, but this one is unique because all I used were pizza pans from the dollar store, 12x12 scrapbooking paper (which I happened to have on hand), and Mod Podge. This project costs about $5 and is so easy to do! Plus its magnetic... and I have had a bit of an obsession with magnets lately. I didn't take any pictures along the way, but basically you cut your paper into 11 1/2 inch circles and use Mod Podge to glue it to the pizza pans and then brush the Mod Podge over the top of the paper to seal it.
Here are some pictures a bit more close up. Notice the magnets used here are the Bottle-Cap Fridge Flair and a tutorial for these can be found in this post.
