Last fall I sent one son off to college and the other off into his own apartment since he started working full-time (WOO HOO! EMPTY NEST) and they both asked for some menu ideas and recipes they liked with the shopping list. I created a simple menu list called College Cooking List that they both used. Now I am getting ready to send one of them off on a LDS Church Mission to North Dakota for two years and he asked me to give him a list of Fast Meals that he could make. Missionaries just don’t have a lot of free time to menu plan so they need to prepare and eat fast, from what I understand. I took their favorite recipes and created two types of lists. I took most of the recipes from my Master Menu List that our family created years ago.
If you want to prevent this:
Might I suggest you make up lists like these with THEIR favorite recipes. Even better… send them some ingredients (nothing in glass jars) so that they can make their favorite meal tonight!
