Project management based dinner planning

Making a weekly dinner list can get monotonous. Picky eaters and seasonality can be challenging factors to contend with when picking meals. Most people do not want to eat the same dishes every week (year after year). Could basic elements of our best project management frameworks help produce better dinner lists? The triple constraint of cost, schedule, and scope probably applies. The only element that truly does not apply would be the concept of closing out a project. Maybe a yearly dinner list could be developed and the project could close out after that yearly list was delivered. Most people would not notice the repetition of eating the same menu every year.

As of today the Food Network has about 730 vegetarian main dish recipes online.  In theory a home chef should be able to make any of the 730 dishes. Naturally, the list was sorted by user rating and then reviewed based on personal preference.
