Here's how my book is organized:
The overall Table of contents.
Here you can kind of see the various colors for the sections (see above)
This is the Table of Contents for the Chicken Section. Recipes that are *** are the ones we tend to make most often and those are the ones printed on the colored pages. A nice theory, but I am not sure that it actually helps me find anything quicker. :)
Those blue chicken recipes. As you can see, at the bottom of each page it lists what section it's part of and what page number it is. We created a separate document for each section, which makes it easy to update the table of contents and to print the new recipes. Simply paste into the document, apply the formatting and print!
Yes, the dessert section is about 3-4 times longer than all the other sections. This is page one of two...or three. Who knows. Anyway, what can I say. I like to bake dessert. :)
Some of my fave dessert recipes. I can post this out where the whole world can see them because I actually modify a few things. :)
And here is the super-technologically advanced way we track our meal plan. Stunning, huh? I always have an excess of these long, lined pads, so they work perfectly for this. I always make a note on the days/evenings that will particularly busy so we can plan for leftovers or for Philip to cook.
There you have it! Hope it inspires you to make one of your own!
