Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you find some time today to spend with the ones you love.

I know I will be working on some special treats for my family. Nothing big, but hopeful that they make them smile.

Here’s what’s on my menu this week – in no particular order. Some are repeats from earlier weeks because we’ve veered off the menu a few times. I also reserve the right to change up a little mid-week because I’ve subscribed to e-Mealz.com and I’m going to give a few of their recipes a whirl. It’s a great program, on the surface. $5 a month gets you a weekly menu and shopping list. What I like are the variety of choices you get – including ones that take advantage of grocery sales for Publix, Kroger, Aldi or WalMart.  There are also Weight Watchers friendly menus. 

I’ll let you know how it goes after we try our first month.

A couple of the items on my menu this week are from the first two menu plans I’ve downloaded, so I’m jumping in right away with some new things to try.

I like mixing it up a bit, while keeping my family favorites in the rotation.

Anyway, here is our menu:

For lunches this week:

  • Veggie Chili
  • Chopped Blue Cheese Salad
  • Tortilla soup (if I don’t do the chili)

  1. Oh, now I am hungry and have realised I skipped lunch! These all sound so lovely… what are Sloppy Joes again? (sure someone told me once…).
    Off to look for my tuna sandwich.. x

  2. I have been using e-mealz for about 5 months now and it sure has been a God-send. I use the any store plan because the stores they feature are not available where I live. Not only has it taken the guess work out of “What am I going to make for dinner?”, but it has saved me $50-$80 a week on my food budget. Most of the meals are kid friendly and my two teenagers are pretty picky. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

  3. Lizzie – they are like a cross between BBQ and a hamburger, but the meat is loose, not in a patty. Super easy & super good. I serve them with toasted buns and homemade fries.

  4. Christine, that is good to know! I see about 50% of the menu items so far that my family would eat, but I’m hoping to get them to branch out and try some new things, too. I love having a plan and then cooking from the plan. It saves me time, money,and most importantly, STRESS!
