Saving Dinner

1 Comment

I just came across a new website last week called Saving Dinner.  The author has lots of great menus already made for many different needs available for a very small price.  We purchased one of her freezer meal plans (only $8.95) that gives shopping lists, instructions, suggestions for side items, and everything else you need to make 22 dinners for 4 people.  You can make as many copies for yourself as you need.  The best part is that she is a frugal woman, so Bill and I only spent around $75 for 2 weeks of groceries yesterday.  That $8.95 was well worth it.  Then we had a great time assembling the meals together last night (we only did 10 at a time, though we actually could have fit all 22 of them in our small freezer, even with ice trays and other food items).  It might sound a little unromantic, but I would recommend doing something like this for a date with your spouse.  We talked a lot and enjoyed working together for a couple of hours so we can save many hours this week on meal prep.  That’s more time we can talk the next two weeks.  All I have to do now is thaw the meal the night before and pop it in the oven or crock pot when we’re ready to cook it.  It really was a lot of fun.  We’re having our first meal tonight–crock pot beef and peppers with mashed potatoes, broccoli, and salad.  Yum!
