To make these dice, here’s what you’ll need:

I used foam cubes for this project and simply wrote the words onto the cubes. However, another option is to purchase wooden cubes like these and then use the method I describe here to transfer the words onto the faces of the cube.

So, let’s roll the dice a few times and see what we come up with, shall we?

The next roll was Pork, Quinoa and Broccoli. This Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa paired with a Pork Loin sounds delicious! Let’s do one final roll…

This time, we rolled Fish, Beets and Rice. I bet this Beet Cheddar Risotto would be delicious with a filet of salmon.

I hope this project inspires you to make a set of these meal planning dice for yourself. It has been a fun addition to our meal planning routine and it certainly results in unique, delicious combinations we would have never thought of ourselves.

Happy crafting! Happy meal planning!
