Three meals a day, to the homemaker means to plan, prepare and wash the dishes for over a thousand meals during the year. A woman asked not so long ago, “Since meal planning and preparation occupies such a conspicuous part of the homemaker’s time, on the average on third, cannot meals be planned on a wholesale scale being they are counted by wholesale figures?” The best system for meal planning like for anything else, is the simplest and the easiest way to do it.
