Meal Planning Trial & Error…So Many Errors

Emeals Months 1 & 2

A while back I recounted some of our more recent Meal Planning adventures.

Over the past month, we have been using emeals to plan our menu and grocery list.

Emeals is a service that emails you a menu and grocery list each week. This menu is according to a meal plan you selected. There are dozens of plans you can select.

  • Paleo
  • Vegetarian
  • Slow Cooker
  • Gluten-Free
  • Clean Eating
  • Budget Friendly

Plus you can select to have a 2 person plan or a family plan!

Choice 2

We were in luck! $ 10 bought us one gallon of hand-pressed cider. Now we were off to fill one 5 gallon bucket with apples that we will chop and press into cider. Read More →
