Your Meal Plan

What’s a Meal Planning Board without a plan? The heart of the program rests inside the Schedule. The recipes in your Recipe Collection build up your Plan, and your Plan will build your Shopping List. Friday isn’t quite over year. Let’s go through this feature, shall we?

First thing’s first: getting a recipe on to your meal plan. Head to the recipe you want to put on your plan. On the left hand side, select the date and meal the recipe should be on your plan. Then click “Save.” You’ll head back to your Recipe Collection automatically. Click on “Schedule” to see your plan in action, as it starts to shape up.

Your plan can be as detailed or as simple as you like. Here, you can see a simple plan that shows dinner for a week. Our own meal planning is centered around dinner, with leftovers building up lunches as well as subsequent dinners. In this sample Plan, the Bride’s Mole is built off of a roast chicken from the previous week, and the Cubanos on Friday are built off of the roast from Friday.

Scroll through weeks by clicking the "Next," and Previous" week buttons.

You can do quite a bit more in your Schedule than take a look at what’s laid out for the week. Skip ahead to the next week or back to the previous week by clicking on the “Next,” and “Previous” buttons.

When you need to make a change, you can delete a recipe from your Plan by  clicking on the trash can next to each recipe in your plan. But, before you click that delete button, if you’re just trying to move the recipe to another day or meal, drag the recipe from the old to the correct location in your plan.
