Menu Plan Monday ~ April 14th

Hi de ho neighbors! I’ve been getting some emails lately asking about recipe sites that allow you to enter in a list of ingredients you have on hand in order to get a list of corresponding recipes. I know of a few sites but I’m hoping you will also be able to help out by adding to my list. Please share in the comments any recipe sites that you know of that allow you to enter in various ingredients and I will continue to add to this list. Thanks bunches ๐Ÿ™‚

    So is the spaghetti kid pleasing because they like spaghetti or something special about the sauce?

    Thanks for the links to those sites. I’m a loyal user, but it would be good to have a few other tricks up my sleeve when I just can’t find the right recipe!

    Next week I am definitely going to try one of those recipe building sites. What a great idea. I knew you could do it for mixed drinks, but I never even thought that you could be able to do it with food, too. Genius.

    Thanks for hosting this! I have to have an easy week this week because we’re taking off for a few days and I have to eat all the veggies in my freezer without adding more stuff.

    But I love challenges!

    I love how you have a recipe for each meal that you make!

    Do you make something new each night/week or do you have favorites that you go back to over and over again?

    You asked about sites that allow you to enter ingredients and get corresponding recipes. I don’t use a web site for this. I use a very inexpensive software program called EzyEating. That way, I have more control over the recipes I get, but then I’m kind of a control freak that way. Oh, once it finds the recipes, it gives me a menu plan and grocery list too. You can find it at
