Simply create for example new menu called Hidden Menu..
Let's say one category is Latest News, Then pick that as the Menu title, and type category blog (you can have article also depending on your content) and make sure the menu item (Latest News) is published in this new menu.
This menu is not a published module so it won't show up anywhere on your site.
This was very helpful as I had forgotten that Joomla quirk. Thanks.
