Back to School Event {Grandma Mable's Meal Planning}

Grandma Mable's is a meal planning subscription service that delivers delicious, easy-to-follow recipes straight to your in box! 

With school right around the corner, moms and dads across the nation are now trying to get back in to gear and settle in to the nightly meals together as families.Sometimes it's difficult though-- I find it hard to think of new meals that the family will like. I get bored easily with the same old, same old. This is why Grandma Mable's is so great! It eliminates the age old question of "what's for dinner tonight?"

Every week subscribers receive three entrees, two lighter meals, and one dessert. It's absolutley perfect for those nights when you just don't know what to fix! It fills in the gaps!

For $24 dollars per year, the subscription covers the weekly email with the recipes (that is 6 cents per recipe!!), the shopping list for the menus ingredients, and weekly cooking tips-- not to mention the time and money it saves you every week! 

I received a subscription for Grandma Mable's and was thrilled to get started making the recipes! They were simple to follow, family friendly and delicious. I loved going to the grocery store set with what I needed. There was no forgetting anything-- it was all right there in front of me!

For a sample menu to see what to expect every week, go here.

How is Mable's Meals different than other menu planning guides?
First and foremost, all recipes are family friendly! Plus, we provide photographs of every recipe, which is helpful if you like to see what you're cooking first. We also give hints at the beginning of each guide to make cooking easier throughout the week.
How many people do the meals serve?
All menu guides serve four people but we've formatted the shopping lists for easy conversions. If you are serving two people, divide the shopping list by two. If you are serving eight, multiply the shopping list by two.

Menu planning was a real challenge for me too, but I recently found this great software that has helped simplify my life a lot! Cook'n Recipe Organizer makes planning my meals easy. I just input my recipe, Put it on a weekly menu, and Cook'n can print out my menu, and even generate a shopping list for me. It has made planning meals extremely easy, and has already helped me save money.
