Here is how I made our Supper Selector.
Gather up as many clothespins as you have menu items for.
Write each menu item on a clothespin. I should of gone to the store and bought a fine tipped permanent marker as the one I used doesn't look the best.
Place in a large jar. My mom is a cook and brought me this nice large one. If I find more recipes that the kids like I have plenty of space to add more clothespins to the jar.
I cut out letters from magazines and glued them on with Modge Podge. I only put Modge Podge on the back, you could decorate the jar however you want.
Grab 7 clothespins out of the jar for the week.
I clipped them to the top of the jar, but I may clip them to the calendar. I figure once they are drawn we can put them in whatever order we want depending on what our schedule looks like for the week. Some meals are easier to make than others, so those will be for when we don't have anything going on at night. I also think we will make sure to pick for the following week before putting them back in the jar that way we don't have the same thing two weeks in a row.
Ideally I would like to have the ingredients listed also, so I may have to find a different solution to the clothespin. It would be nice to have the ingredients listed on the back so that I can make shopping lists easier without having to search my cookbook to see what I need. I have most of my recipes in one book so maybe I will just reference page numbers on the back instead or the things that I don't normally stock.
Here's hoping that the Supper Selector works and we can stick to what's on the menu!
Have a good day!
