Re: menu planning
i try to do that - make a list of what i'm going to cook for the week and build my grocery list accordingly. it definitely helps me in a couple ways 1)i don't buy stuff and not end up using it and 2)it helps us avoid the - "i don't feel like cooking...let's go out to eat syndrome".
i don't use a software program. i usually go through a cookbook or two or check out a favorite online recipe site for some inspiration (and check the pantry & fridge to see what i already have) and go from there. it does take some extra time on the front end but i'm not very good at planning on the fly in the store - i always forget things.
