I don’t know about you, but I tend to cook the same six or seven go-to dinners over and over again. That’s why I’m happy to share with you some information that Kate, from Stolen Moments Menu Planning, sent me.
Stolen Moments Menu Planning delivers fully personalized menu plans to your email inbox weekly or monthly. Each email includes a complete menu plan, recipes, a detailed and organized-by-department grocery list, bonus recipes, and tips and tricks to help you take advantage of stolen moments in the kitchen. When you sign up for the Stolen Moments Menu Planning service, you will fill out a detailed survey guaranteeing a fully customized menu plan that fits your family to a T! Check a sample menu here.
Kate is offering a special discount for Almost Frugal readers: visit this page and use the password ‘frugal’.
The basic plan (dinners) is $5.95/month (regularly $7.95/month), with discounted deals for longer purchases. (ie. the 12 month plan is $60 or $5/month).
The complete plan (breakfast, lunch and dinners) is $12.50/month (regularly $14.50/month), with discounted deals for longer purchases (ie. the 12 month plan is $120 or $10/month).
What I like about this plan (and Kate is in no way compensating me for passing on this information) is that you can completely customize it. For example, she mentions that if you don’t like mushrooms (blech!), they’ll never show up in one of your meals. I love that.
