    The Budget Dinner of the Day thread was a bit time-consuming to maintain on a daily basis. But...I've missed it. Instead, I'm going to try a Budget Dinner of the Week thread. Hopefully, it won't be quite so time-consuming. Check the Budget Dinner of the Week Archive and the Budget Dinner of the Week Archive cookbook for more ideas as the weeks pass.

    I hope you enjoy it. icon_wink.gif

    I know my opinion, but I'm just curious...what do you think of this format vs. the old one?

    I like this. I think it's easier for you, and easier for us since it all contained in one post.

    But it YOUR opinion that matters, since you're the one doing all the hard work! icon_lol.gif

    I have mixed feelings...

    On the one hand, I like it far better because (as you mentioned) it's all in one post...and while it requires about the same amount of work as the last one to format/set up, I only have to post the thread once a week, instead of 7x a week. I also like the small photos vs. the larger ones. The larger ones have much more detail, but would have made it almost impossible to do a whole week's worth in one post.

    What I don't like about it is that the whole thing can get lost in the shuffle by the first or second day...making it feel like it's all a waste of time if no one is seeing it. I'm thinking about stickying it...but don't want to clutter up the top of the forum page.

    Decisions, decisions. icon_confused.gif icon_lol.gif icon_redface.gif

    Overall, though...I like it much better.
