Not so keen on the meal planning, but I should definitely start a recipe book. All my family recipes are not written down anywhere! Recipe Organization and Meal Planning Binder... I WISH I could be this organized!
When you want to preserve family recipes photograph the originals or scan them. Then place them into a book or something similar. Also organize recipes by family events like Thanksgiving etc. so that everyone knows what the traditions are for your family.
