Menu contains a range of items open to a customer to choose from. There are several types of menus like dinner menu, bar menu and weekly menu etc. As the name of the menu suggests it is a menu containing items that will be served throughout a week. Weekly menus are altered every week unlike other menus that largely remain the same throughout a major portion of the year with only few alterations in the prices and food items. Weekly menus are not necessarily offered at restaurants. They can be made by moms at home for reducing their burden of kitchen and managing their household efficiently.
Interestingly weekly menus are a combination of all breakfast, lunch and dinner menus but narrowed down to a shorter period of only seven days. Weekly menus are way more difficult to make than others because the menu has to be reviewed every week. Mothers who are perfectly known as house managers have to take on this task to please their husbands and moody children. Also this can result in immense peace of mind for them too because they do not have to put strain on their minds daily about what to eat and what not to. House managers (moms) sit down and plan the weekly menu to avoid everyday hassle. Although this task is time consuming but that is worth putting efforts because it is aptly remarked by some genius that you have to lose something to get something.
