Keeping a “Thumbs Up” List on Your Fridge

On the refrigerator in our kitchen we have a scrap piece of paper with “Meals That Receive 5 Petey Thumbs Up” scribbled on it.  Over the years I’ve recorded the meals that all 5 members of our family really enjoy.  Mostly I do this because I have no memory left these days, but it also serves as a quick Go-To list for pantry meals and quick weekly menu ideas.

Start keeping track of meals that are quick, healthy, and easy to prepare but most importantly ones that every member of your family enjoys.  This easy little action will save you time when you plan your menu for the week.
