Dig out the unused cookbooks you’ve hidden away on your top shelf. It’s time to make the new delicious meals that you’ve always wanted to try out. This week’s DIY is a meal planner, use it for yourself, your family, or print a few, tie it up with some twine and give it to a friend as a little gift. Spring has come and what better way to slowly move away from hearty winter stews and soups to some lighter meals. This meal planner from Elephantshoe will not only help you to stay on track with what’s cooking in the kitchen, but it also serves as a great way to remember your list of groceries. Write them down and tick ‘em off. I love planning ahead and cooking good food, so I know this planner will be a must-have in my house. For the meal planner, simply download the file, print out as many copies as you like of page 2 on an A4 card or paper and stick it on your fridge. Happy cooking! We’re feeling a little generous today, so be sure to check out the fabulous giveaway we’re running this week. Once again, we thank Blackframe Photography for the beautiful photos.

Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first!
