What happened to the time?  Is it really gonna be a new year this week?

I have had a nice break from cooking on a regular basis, but I really need to get back into the habit.  I had to figure out something to cook last night and it was torture!

It is times like those that I really appreciate meal planning.

Right now the meal planning website I use, Plan to Eat, is offering 20% off gift subscriptions.

At first I was hesitant about spending money on this kind of service, but since I signed up two years ago I have not regretted it.  The service just keeps getting better.

I love how easy it is to add recipes and search for them.  It makes planning my week of meals so fast!


You can put recipes in your queue making them easy to find, that way you don’t end up cooking chicken all week-long.

Another wonderful feature is that once you plan a recipe, the ingredients go into your shopping list.  Which you can go through and indicate the things you already have.
They have really tried to make the program more useful by combining the same ingredients.  So if you are making chicken twice in one week it will add the two amounts together.


Since I have signed up in Sept of 2011, I have spent over 51 hours on the Plan to Eat website.

This discount is a great way to get someone you love organized with their meal planning.
