(If your just joining us, welcome to Meal Planning Boot Camp. Each day this week I’ll post a lesson and a homework assignment. Click here to read the complete overview.)
Graduation Day Update
We had some blog post delivery issues late this week, as a result, I’ll be moving Graduation Day to next week. This will give everyone the weekend to catch up (or even just add in a few more menus and recipes) and it will also allow you to put all your hard work to the test at the grocery store this weekend.
Today’s Lesson: The Friends Section and Q & A
In today’s videos, I discuss the Friends section of the Plan To Eat website and I also answer several of your questions including:
- How do I add my menu plan to my calendar.
- How to use tags to further categorize recipes.
- How to add nutrition info.
- How to make a recipe private.
- What is the Queue and how do I use it?
- I don’t see my Pantry in the Shopping List. How do I add it?
(RSS and email readers, click here to watch the videos.)
I hope you have been enjoying this Boot Camp so far! I’ve really enjoyed reading your comments and tweets about all that you’re learning.
Be sure to finish strong. Make the most of this weekend. Add more recipes, create a couple more menu plans, tweak the shopping list. Finishing strong now will make it so much easier for you the rest of the year. Your future self and your family will thank you for all your hard work.
Homework: Time To Make Some Friends
Since we just did a lesson on the Friend section, let’s create a list of everyone’s usernames, the type of food they generally cook, and the names of their favorite recipes.
Assignment 1: Introduce yourself
Share these 3 tidbits in the comments:
- PTE username
- Kinds of recipes you have (simple, vegan, gluten free, fast, gourmet, kid friendly…)
- The names of 1 or 2 of your favorite recipes and why.
Assignment 2: Add at least 5 friends
Try to find at least 5 friends whose cooking matches up with yours and add them as friends. It will make it so much simpler the next time you find yourself in a cooking rut. Just take a glance through their recipes or menus and you’ll find plenty of inspiration.
