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!
