My advice?...see if they can wait a bit longer and leverage the new Module Builder UI...it'll save you time, and allow them to create new "Types" on the fly. So I guess then you need a form YES OR NO on if this will exist in SBE.
What I would then do is link in the category taxon to that new type. And have the categories be daily specials, weekly specials. Then they could just go in and add items to that category and your widget would pull everything FROM that category and display it.
In the short-term I wonder if you could use Lists. So there would be a "Lunch Menu" list, perhaps a "Dinner List", or "Artery clogging" list. And you could tag categories to list items to achieve the above solution.
The bonus on the list is you can re-order items in the UI and add custom fields such as price or availability.
...perhaps lists is just the better way to go?
