Meals by the Week has you covered! They offer a subscription service that gives you seven dinner selections each week.
The recipes are geared to what is on sale at particular stores that week. So if you usually shop at Wal-Mart the recipes you get will be based on the sales at Wal-Mart that week.
There are different stores for each region too. For instance all the regions seem to have Trader Joe’s and Wal-Mart but some have Publix, Safeway, Whole Foods, Kroger, or Hen House.
There are also Vegetarian and Paleo menu’s. And one list called Meals in Moments that includes a lot of slow cooker and leftover makeover meals.
Those leftover makeovers are pretty cool. They use whatever is leftover from the slow cooker meal to make something different.
Each of the menu choices allows you to choose how many folks you are cooking for that particular week. So if you normally only have 4 people but are having your in-laws visit this week you can just change that to 6 people and it automatically increases everything in the recipes!
That is really great for people like me who have to actually sit down and figure out the differences in the amounts – you don’t have to do that with these recipes because they do it for you!
And you can keep each recipe or skip it. If there is something on there you know your husband won’t eat you can skip that one. Of course if there is one you know you will love there is a button that you can click to double that recipe.
At the bottom of the recipe list there is a button you can click to print the menu and another to print your shopping list.
Yep they even make out the shopping list for you! Then you just go through and mark out the items you already have and you know what to buy. Or if you think you need to stock up you can do that too. I had some of the stuff needed but not many of the spices. The list makes that easy to fix.
Depending on what kind of subscription you get you also have access to the recipes from prior weeks (you have to sign up for 4 weeks minimum to get that).
They have a lot of great recipes and their FAQ says they try not to repeat them for 4 to 6 months.
This is a great service for anyone who doesn’t have time to make up menus and shopping lists (or just doesn’t want to).
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
