Recipe Planning, DJ Style
- How many afternoons about 3:00 are you sitting at your desk at work, scrambling for ideas for dinner?
- How many Sundays do you promise yourself that you’ll make out a weekly menu and actually plan ahead?
- How many of us simply are too busy to plan, even though it would save time in the long run?
While struggling with these dilemmas, I came across FoodDJ.com.
It’s a pretty cool site. After signing up for free, a monthly calendar of recipes is generated for you, based on some key food terms/items you select during the sign-up process. You give the recipes a thumbs up or thumbs down. If you give it a thumbs down, it’s replaced with another recipe.
Once you’ve found a recipe you like, simply click on it, and it opens in a pop-up window.
Once you’ve picked your recipes for the month, you can then have it create a shopping list for you based on date range for your calendar:
You can then edit and/or delete items. Pretty cool!
It also lets you add your own recipes to share with others on the site.
I plan on using it to help me in building my weekly menus…or find recipes last minute when said menu doesn’t get made. 🙂
