Works For Me Wednesday – Dinner History

WFMW

Today’s theme for Works-For-Me Wednesday is a recap of the greatest hits/tips!  I posted this back in January, and it is one of my favorites. 

I enjoy keeping a record of the dinner meals that I have cooked over the years.  For one, it’s fun to read back over the different things I have prepared and served!  Secondly, it helps me plan a better variety of things to feed my family.  I can look back and repeat things that were a success while  keeping an overall picture of the different dishes I have tried.  It keeps me from getting in a rut!

Notice that the author of Works-For-Me-Wednesday has changed!  You can now visit We Are THAT Family for great tips.

I have an 11 year journal (called Journal 10+) that has a small line for each day at the beginning of each month. I started putting our dinner into that spot & it really did help. I would have never thought of it if it hadn't been that I needed to use that section of the book!

This is a really great tip!

My greatest tip is about Vitamin E
Have a great day!
