I've decided that I like having a weekly plan for our menu. I've even started planning out lunches for the week. I usually don't for the weekends, but it is nice having a plan for the weekdays. You can make your own menu planner worksheet, but why reinvent the wheel. Donna Young has several varieties so you can choose the one you like. She has several other household and home school helpers. My favorite are the lesson plans for Apologia Science. I've depended on these for the past several years. The link above is to the page with menu planner templates. You can find her other stuff at www.donnayoung.org.
