We did the trial clean eating first and even my 3 year old ate everything. ..our biggest issue was the portions were too big for our family of 3 so we cut them in half this took about 1.5hours to prep this week but the 3 year old wanted to "help"...which of course slows things down. My husband lost 6lbs so hopefully that continues as well! I decided to prep same day as shopping so I don't put everything away and have to get it back out...worked great! I also pulled spices and dry ingredients as I "shopped my pantry" so they'd be ready when I got home.


Mess the kitchen up only once a week!

No more messy kitchens to clean up night after night.

How does only having to clean the kitchen once a week sound?

My meal plan system streamlines the cooking process and eliminates the need to dirty the kitchen every night.  That's right!  I can get you out of the kitchen faster! 

Watch the system in action!

There is no other meal plan system like this.  This is not your mother or grandmothers way of cooking where you dirty the whole kitchen every single night.  This is different! It's better!

About Michelle

I am a wife, mother, blogger, menu planner and food lover! I created this service to help busy moms like me get dinner on the table and ditch those drive thru dinners!

The idea came to me back in the Fall of 2010 when we were eating yet another greasy $29.00 dinner out of a paper sack. We were all tired of fast food dinners, but that was the best I could do on a busy weeknight. I liked the concept of freezer cooking assembly but wanted the food to be fresh because frozen dinners seem to get lost and forgotten about.

I am very visual and if I don’t see it, it does not exist. I knew if I had a week of dinners in the fridge, I would cook them. After many weeks of trial, error, tweaking and some gagging (sorry family…. not all recipes are winners), I came up with a system that worked!

While we may not all be home at the same time for dinner or sit at a table to eat, we are at least eating healthier without me spending all my time in the kitchen over a hot stove. In fact, I rarely stand over a hot stove anymore. Wow, I just realized that. My menu plans really ARE GOOD! ;)

And in case you are wondering, they are not all casseroles. We still have divided plates our house. Did you know, if food on your plate touches, the Universe could explode? Well, not really but it can cause a teenager, toddler, grown man to refuse to eat. So for that reason, I try to keep the meals family and  mostly divided plate friendly. ;)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my meal plans.

Here’s to a full fridge and full happy bellies!
