Threads about weekly menus July 25, 2011 2:18 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for threads on creating, purchasing for, cooking weekly menus. I know there are a ton of them on ask.mefi, but I can't seem to come up with the right terms to find them. Can anyone point me to some? I accept that I am a searchtard.

How can I schedule my shopping and meals better?

Looking for weekly meal plans that make the most of leftovers. (similar to the limited ingredients thread above)

Are these the sort of thing you were looking for?

Also see: EatMe for AskMe advice across a wide range of cooking topics. But surprisingly, no menu planning.

Yet. ;)

Searchtard?

Yeah, these are in the general vein. I'm trying to lose weight (again) and I know that, for me, part of that is eating at home. I also know that I'll keep it up longer if there's a routine and that, when I find food I like, I'm fine with eating it frequently. I'm thinking that if I can put together a one- or two-week menu that's balanced and tasty, I can just repeat it over and over, occasionally swapping out when I get sick of a particular meal. So...yeah, that's what I'm looking for. Haven't widened my search beyond mefi yet.

Yes. Searchtard. I am sick of "Google-fu." I can also offer you "Bing-jitsu." The choice is yours.

The Dutchman: "So...yeah, that's what I'm looking for. "

OK, good.

I searched for "menu" then "cooking weekly" then grabbed whatever threads seemed appropriate. I'm sure that if you played around with search terms you could come up with more links.

Dutchman, I don't know what was on hal_c_on's mind, but using "tard" as a suffix seems sort of insensitive to me. I guess I don't know, though.

No no no: "Bing Chun."

DO NOT COOK THE MENUS. The menus are for reading only.

I second your first statement, but negate your second statement. You do know.

EatMe updated. shakespeherian, I added your link under "cooking attitude change." Seemed to fit best there.
