What's on the Menu?

I don't know about you guys, but I have the hardest time trying to figure out what to make for dinner each night.  I ask my hubby for an idea and he will tell me something and I say "that doesn't sound very good"
I guess I am pretty selfish when it come to making dinner, I usually cook what I am in the mood for that night. 
I also sometimes plan out what to have for dinner each morning and by the afternoon I forget what I planned.  Well today, I have solved my problem (sorta)...

All you need for this project is:
 A White Plate  (this came from Wal-mart and it was only $3.00)
 A squeegee, Vinyl decal from EAD Designs
 I love using an easel while applying vinyl to the plate because I can picture exactly how it is going to look when it is displayed.  After a few minutes, I came up with this delicious creation.

Now my only problem is what to write on it for tonight....

Vinyl decal used can be found here:

Pick up your vinyl today:

  7. Oh,This so Cute and Creative. I Love It!!!! This would make a great gift. I need to make me one of these. I know that I would be writing :What ever you can find" on it sometimes. Since my kids have moved out I find myself saying that.
    Thanks for Sharing this Great Idea!!! :0)

  8. what a GREAT idea, I have this exact problem, or I will take something out and then not feel like having that anymore, and when I ask my hubbie what do you want for dinner, he says me nuts, I am so bored of always cooking the same things....
    I need all the help I can get....LOL
