If you did not know I have been given the opportunity to review E-mealz for 1 month. You can read about
how I got the chance to Review E-Mealz here.
This past week was my first week to use it. I printed my menu with recipes and my grocery list. As I
mentioned last week we are picky eaters so I went through both the menu and shopping list and crossed off
what we would not eat. This week there was a recipe with salmon and I do not eat seafood so I crossed it
off. This did not cause a problem because we really only need 5-6 dinners per week (my mom cooks for
my family one night per week, yes I know I am blessed). Then there were two sides that we are not fond
of but sides are easy to substitute with something else.
Next, I shopped my pantry, fridge and freezer for what I already had. Then I was off to the store. I was
happy to find that each of the items were in stock and for the price my grocery list said that it would be.
Once home I went through each of the meals to decide which days each of the recipes would work best for
us. Because we were out of town this weekend, I was even able to pick two meals to save for later and
one that I think will be good to make ahead and freeze.
Our first two meals were pretty basic recipes Mexican hamburgers and Buffalo Chicken Sliders. They were
very yummy and everyone ate them well. These two meals are also the recipes I changed the sides, one
would have been baked beans and the other potato salad. I made a large batch of our favorite pasta salad
and split it between both dinners. Even with this substitute I was able to stay within the budgeted amount
for those meals. Our favorite recipe was the Tortellini and Sausage Soup, it was a huge success. Besides
being tasty it was a quick meal to make and it is easy to keep each of the ingredients on hand. It will
become one of my go to recipes. I hope this week is closer to normal so I can try more recipes.
So at the end of week one if you ask me my opinion of Emealz I will tell you it is a great way to make
preparing dinner easier, shopping more simple and staying within a budget a breeze (each me is coming in at
$10 or under).
