What's for dinner?

    Posted by  ·  August 27, 2008

    Oh I need to get organized and have a plan! In the past I have been really happy and satisfied with SavingDinner.com.  There is no thinking involved!  For a fee you are emailed a set of recipes each week along with a shopping list.   I especially like the freezer meals from Saving Dinner. The ones for the grill are really great. I also like that I can choose a menu by dietary need —heart healthy, low carb .  You can even choose by which hemisphere you live in. She even has holiday menus!  One of the biggest benefits is that her recipes use a wide variety of meats, vegetables and fruits so it keeps us eating a really varied diet and keeps my kids trying new things.  But most important, all week long I can always answer that big question, “What’s for dinner?”  For some reason I have fallen off the wagon—so I am hopping back on.

    If you would like to give saving dinner meals a try  then leave a comment by Friday at midnight and one lucky reader will receive a free 5 for the Freezer meal plan from  Saving Dinner!

    I am also anxious to try Stacy’s recommendation for You’ve Got Supper! This service is free.

    I have my recipes and shopping list printed and I am off to the store!  Have a great day!

      I'd love to try this as well. I'm a busy teacher (love your Teacher Appreciation ideas), mom of 3, and crafter. I need help with dinner ideas.

      I'm still happy with the YGS meals. :) I'm going on week 4-ish and haven't hit a "dud" yet!

      I've never heard of this before- sounds cool though! With my second child due shortly it would be good to have some freezer meals made up for the rest of the clan!

      Wonderful idea! It's just what I need as I feel the panic of the school year upon me.

      OOO! I've been wanting to try this out!

      I am one of the founders of YGS - You've Got Supper. We appreciate the mention, and I wanted to provide a little context for the readers. We started like all other menu planning sites on the web, as a fee-based subscription model. We decided this was not in our members' best interest, so we converted to a free model four months ago.

      We have grown 1,900%. We would like to keep it up, so give us a try. I think you will like our service and we continue to work hard to be the best menu planning website (free or fee-based). Thanks.

      It would be great to win - any help in this area is always good!

      With a daughter's wedding coming up in three weeks and two preschoolers shadowing me everywhere, this sounds like a godsend.

      Freezer meals are wonderful to give people when they have a newborn baby. I would love some more ideas to use!

      I actually just started a freezer meals group with a few friends and I would love to have some more recipes. Thanks for the chance!

      I've tried Let's Dish, but I would love to try Saving Dinner!
    24. Wednesday, August 27th, 2008
      I need help! I hate trying to figure out dinner every night, plus I love making dinner once and having it feed us 2 or 3 times. This sounds like a godsend!
    25. Wednesday, August 27th, 2008
      I've heard good things about this too! I'd love to try it.

      ooo, pick me, pick me! i've been known to go to one of those 'make-your-meals-ahead-and store-them-in-the-freezer' stores but they were so expensive & the food really wasn't all that great. i just really need help adding new things to my list of meals and to have someone SEND me my meal plan & shopping list...ah what else could my lazy self want? ;)

      Love saving dinner. I have her low carb book. I would love some freezer meal ideas to keep handy!

      I also love Menus4Moms. It has a fee part and a free part. The fee gets you the nutrition info and the weightwatchers points. The free section gives you the basic menu and the grocery list. It's a real time saver for me!

      I've very interested in Freezer meals. I made four this past week and we are in the process of testing and reviewing the meals. Thanks!
    32. Wednesday, August 27th, 2008
      This is so great! I get tired of making all the same stuff, but just don't have the time or energy to seek out new recipes every week. Thanks for the tip!

      What a great giveaway. I am always looking for good recipes for the freezer.
    35. Wednesday, August 27th, 2008
      I would love to try it and see if it would help me get organized about meals! Hard to do with 7 year old twins and all that they do! Thanks for all your ideas and hints
    36. Wednesday, August 27th, 2008
      I have never heard of this! It sounds like something I could use! I hate planning out "what's for dinner" every week. I draw a blank and stare at the pantry for awhile! Thanks for the idea!
    37. Wednesday, August 27th, 2008
      I'd love to try that out - I have the book and I like it a lot but haven't tried the freezer meals.
