Menu Plan Monday ~ Sept 28th + giveaway
Updated to add: This giveaway is now closed. The winner is #24 Colleen!
Isn’t that new button so cute? I’ve been helping Cathy from Desperately Seeking WordPress with some purse organization (that I’ll hopefully be showing you tomorrow) and she went and made a lovely MPM button for me in return. I just love it! You are more than welcome to use it on your own site as well if you like. Thanks again Cathy!
So last week we did it, we made it over 400 participants! In fact I believe we were at 430! That’s a lot of happy households my friends, woohoo :) I said that if we made it over 400 I’d giveaway the Summer Slow Cooker Meals Taste of Home cookbook to a random winner. That winner is A Couch With A View!! Thanks everyone, I hope you enjoyed a week of less stress for having had a menu plan :)
Since last week was so much fun I’ve decided to do another giveaway this week except I’m making this one open to everyone. In other words, you don’t have to link up a menu plan to enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I’m so excited to let you know that this week you have the opportunity to win some menu planning help from Kate at Stolen Moments Menu Planning! Kate is offering either a 3-month subscription to the complete (breakfast, lunch and dinner) plan or a 6-month subscription to the basic (dinners only) plan. The winner can pick which option they’d prefer.
This service is different from other menu planning options out there because it is fully personalized to your family’s size, likes, dislikes, cooking styles and budget. Kate takes your answers from a brief survey to create unique menu plans tailored just for your family. Each plan includes the menu, recipes and a corresponding grocery list. You can choose to have your plans delivered monthly or weekly. For more information, check out the Stolen Moments Menu Planning site and order page. I haven’t seen another menu planning service that offers this much personalization and attention to your family’s unique needs. In honor of today’s giveaway Kate has set up a unique discount page for orgjunkie readers here. Simply put in the password frugal and you will be able to lock in at the rate of $5.95 per month for basic and $12.50 per month for complete. Sample menu plans can be seen here. To enter the giveaway just leave a comment on this post before Wednesday, September 30th at 6:00 pm PST to be eligible.
Okay so here is what my family will be eating this week:
Monday: Caesar Chicken Pasta Salad
Tuesday: Dinner at friends – I’m going to bring some Glazed Chocolate Chip Brownies
Wednesday: Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf served with rice and broccoli
Thursday: Son’s 10th birthday! His pick = grilled steak (with this Easy Marinade) and baked potatoes
