neat eats

Over the weekend a sweet box arrived with some items I ordered from Rachel over at "Heart of Light" - I am in love with my new weekly meal plan. I had some custom made too. Monday is the day I plan the weekly menu.
I could not resist these cloth napkins. Who needs to waste paper when these will be our daily napkins for wiping our chinny chin chins and making whatever we eat ever so neat!

Rachel's blog is among my favorites. Full of goodness! Those are such sweet napkins. Did the meal-planning sheets also come from Rachel's shop?

Starr said...

The napkins are charming. And how did you know about was just planning our menu for the next couple of days?

Debra,
yes, the pads, "what shall we eat" came from the her shop too. I think they will make fun gifts for friends with some pantry staples.

Starr -
Planning takes some of the meal time stress away!
Good luck with your menu planning.

Can't wait to check our her blog and I need that mealtime planner.

Laura,
You can have them "customized" with your family name, and the stores that you frequent. The lists come equipped with a magnet on the back!
Practicality reigns order!

Very cute ~ and such a great idea. I have a blog that I post our menus on. I do it in two week periods. This way I always have the items on hand and my sanity in order ~ organization is a must during the school year.

The napkins are so pretty and such a money and paper saver. I really need to get better with menu planning though.

I always use cloth napkins--it's something I got from my mother growing up. Menu planner? Not yet...but these are so sweet, it makes me want to start!

I was just commenting to all who would listen about how I need to plan my weekly meals. One less stressor! I love her little meal sheets. And love the napkins.

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

Oh my, so organized! I am an impulse person and can't even think about dinner until it's time to eat. Fortunately, my husband is a former chef, so I don't have to do any planning...he's a genius in the kitchen!

Emily raffled one of these at mom's night last week. So cute. I am on my way to etsy now!
