File Folder Menu Planner

For my sister-in-law’s bridal shower, I decided to put together a “basket” of cooking items.  She got dish towels, pot holders, a cookie cookbook, and it was all put into a cute lime green colander that I found at Marshalls.  She really likes to cook and so that got me thinking.  A file folder organizer doesn’t just need to be used for a Christmas Planner or an organizer.  I decided to make it into a menu planner.  The four pockets became holders for various recipes: appetizers, main dish, side dish, and dessert.  The look on her face when she opened it was great!  She loved it.  This is something I can continue to add to for her as well by typing up more recipes and giving them to her!
