Menu Board

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  The time of the year when we bundle up, drink yummy drinks and eat lots of comfort foods.   And for most of us, we tend to get a little busy with parties, shopping and getting ready for the holidays.  I’m for sure not eating healthy at all, but would like try to get back on track and also do what I can to eat more at home and maybe snack a little less at those holiday parties.

Today I created this fun menu board.  It’s really easy to put together.  Believe it or not, there is no painting.  I only used a few supplies to get started.
