The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

oh - too easy.

Thanks to an introduction by my sister Brenda (who by the way - just moved to Atlanta and has a wonderful birth services business - know any pregnant folks who want to make their own birthing choices??), I have been using E-mealz for a few weeks now. Sadly, I am not being paid or perked to offer the following glowing recommendation but here goes...

It Is Amazing.
I mean like - I think I hear angels singing - amazing.

You join, pay a small fee ($5 a month - not bad!), and it plans meals for you for every day of the week. Not only does it plan meals for you, it gives you the recipes for each meal and prints out a shopping list for you to take to the grocery store. You can choose the store you want to shop at and you can choose the menu you prefer (meals for 2 people - our choice - or meals for families, as well as low card, gluten free, low calorie, even Weight Watchers points based meals). It has truly solved my "what the heck am I going to make for dinner and do I have to go to the grocery store to get the ingredients" daily dilema. It is truly a lifesaver. I even let Chad pick which meal we are having so he feels somewhat invested in what we will be eating, then I just mark it off the list. For someone who works many nights (me), unpredictable schedules (Chad), and just has general life craziness - it is a $5 well, well spent. And if we see a meal on there we don't like, we just don't get the ingredients for that mean. Most meals even make enough for me to take to work the next day as leftovers (they apparently think most people are BIG eaters! We are not...).

So Brenda - thank you. From the bottom of my not stressed out anymore, dinner cooking heart.

Awwww, I'm glad you are enjoying it and that it is solving your own cooking/planning/shopping stresses. I think it's wonderful. And, by the way, if you check out your account, you can post a link to E-Mealz and if people sign up after having followed that link, you do get some benefits that eventually add up. I'm really enjoying my membership also.
