E-mealz Week 1

I got my first shopping list and meal plan from last Wednesday and was really glad we signed up for the 5 meals a week plan - we already had dinner plans on Thursday and Friday, so Saturday was the first day I cooked from the e-mealz menu.

My initial shopping trip cost $48.74, $18.04 of which was spent on things other than the e-mealz plan (for breakfasts, lunches, snacks, etc. and I used coupons on most of those things). That means dinners this week will average $6.15 a night - for 2 people. (The Squirt's strict dinner diet of spaghetti and/or chicken nuggets meant we did not bother to include him in our plans.)

The meals include 2 pork dishes, one chicken, one beef and one shrimp dinner, which is definitely more variety than I'd say we usually have in a given week. On Thursday I'll let you know how we liked all meals and if I've been able to stay away from the grocery store.


  1. I'm so interested to see how this turns out! Not that I'll be starting anything new anytime soon, but once that babe gets settled, I'll sure think about it!!

  2. Love the new pics! Also, how did you make your background one solid color? Since this is your forte I am hoping you might be able to help me:)
