So when talking to College Friend last night, she clued me into the Kraft website for meal planning and ideas. So of course I had to check it out. I think I'm in LOVE!! (Thanks M!- is it lunchtime yet?) SO this is not your typical recipe site that gives you the recipe, maybe a grocery list and wishes you good luck....NO- this site actually consolidates your grocery list, gives you a weeks worth of meals and easy easy easy recipes too- that you just print off. I discovered the 5 meals in one grocery bag- c'mon that sounds way too easy! In my attempt to make new meals- and cook every night- and PLAN my grocery list and meals in advance (so I am not giving my pantry the blank stare every night looking for a meal to magically appear) I have decided to give this site a try...anyone up for it? We can make it a group project and see which ones are the favorites. This could be fun!
#1- to lower my grocery bills by not doing last minute runs to the store and grabbing all those non essentials along the way.
#2- to find yummy new healthy meals (not too yummy, still want to loose a few before vacation)
#3- to get organized, plan ahead and maybe even clip a few of those coupons my mom keeps bringing over (thanks mom) actually did you know this is a great project for the kids, helps them learn how to cut with scissors (kids safety ones of course) and it helps them learn the value of money- maybe- ok, so I like to think so.
Check THIS out! Oh and check out the wine in the post below, because it was yummy!
