A lot of menu-making is done in the "back of the head." Sometimes it's done the day before, while ironing or cleaning, or while taking the youngsters to school. Sometimes it's done as the homemaker walks into the kitchen or views the contents of the refrigerator some 30 or 40 minutes before the meal.
