Meal planning is one of those short-term-pain, long-term-gain things we all know we should do, but don’t always (kind of like keeping your tax receipts properly organized). So when we find a website that can help us with that, we’re always intrigued.
Our latest discovery is www.kitchenmonki.com which bills itself as “a fun and easy-to-use recipe management website where users can add and share recipes, create printable grocery lists, or plan meals weeks in advance.” And as one review I read stated, rather than focusing on bringing numerous gourmet recipes to the everyday cook, it combines the best aspects of recipe search sites, with the library functionality of iTunes, and the social interaction of Facebook.
All that to say that you can add your favourite recipes to your library or search through others recipes (or the standards that are already loaded) and quickly pick and choose a meal plan for the upcoming week. Your grocery list is automatically created and you’re off to the races (or should we say stove or grocery store…or kitchen).
That’s the kind of monkey we like in our kitchen!
