My 3 Monsters: Recovering & Meal Planning

Recovering & Meal Planning

I feel absolutely terrible that it has now been more than ten days since my last post.  Riley is well.  Thanks for all your kind comments and helpful tips for next time {heaven forbid}that happens.  We've had so much going on around here, but not much worthy of posting.  And I've been sick.  Like, soooo sick.  I'm not even faking, even a little, just to get attention.  I've been in bed, asleep, running a fever for most of the past seven days.  Except for Tuesday.  I felt well enough on Tuesday to go with Ri and the other 6th graders to the Renaissance Fair.  In the rain and cold.  And enjoy a fun Valentines Day dinner with Brent and a few of our closest friends.  And win at the newly wed game.  But then I felt like crud again yesterday.  And a little today.  But moms aren't really allowed to be sick, are we?  So I'm taking a Tylenol and moving on.

I wanted to share something really cool with you today.  Something I just discovered myself to help with meal planning.  Let me just preface this by saying that I am not being compensated to promote this site.  You may have noticed my sponsored posts lately.  Even when I get paid to write about something, I only do it when I really think the product is cool.  This site is so great I'm just shouting it from the rooftops for free!  Okay.  I've said before that I do really well cooking meals at home when I have a plan, but I HATE making the plans and the accompanying grocery lists, and checking all the store sales because I'm on a budget.  It takes FOREVER.

But then I found Food on the Table.  It is a meal planning website based on the stores you shop at.  You can sign up in less than a minute, choose the exact stores you want to shop, and then they provide you with a bunch of recipes that can be made with the items on sale at your store.  Once you've selected your menu for the week, you can print out a shopping list and you're ready to go.  My family loved the chicken fajita melts I made the other night.  {And it was so simple I could make it even though I didn't feel good!}  It's an easy way to save a little money if you don't have time or desire to use coupons.  It won't save you TONS of money like Couponsense or other similar sites will, but those sites don't help you with meal planning either.  It would be awesome to use Food on the Table and Couponsense together . . . you could save really big that way.  Food on the Table has a limited version you can use for free to plan up to three meals a week or there is an option to upgrade for unlimited use of the site.  When I signed up on Monday there was a promo code for free lifetime upgrade that looks like it is no longer working.  {I bet if you google it you could find another great deal in the coming weeks.}

Anyway . . . that's my little plug for my newest favorite thing.  I'm always on the lookout for new, budget-friendly recipes and this really fits the bill.  Have a great day!
