Leading up to the holidays, I'm selecting most of our menus using ingredients we already have on hand. The goal is to free up space in the freezer and cupboards and save a little on the grocery bill.
I just used the last page of my menu journal to write our plans for next week. I started journaling menus in September 2007 with a tad too much ambition. Initially, the intention was to write commentary on the menus, record adjustments to the recipes and comments on wine pairings. The task was too daunting and the record stops after 6 weeks.
