Meal Planning via {Part II} + COUPON

So, hopefully you read my post from earlier this week about how I found and think its the answer to my desires to do meal planning effectively. If you didn't get the "Part I" of this post, you should definitely go back and read it!

I've been super excited about cooking this week and am so excited to share my first week of eMeals with you! eMeals provided me with 7 dinner menus, but I opted to only prepare four. Hubby has Bible study on Wednesday and doesn't get home until late and we usually have plans or eat out on the weekends. So, here's a run-down of this week's meals.

Meal 1 >> Grilled Pacific Flat Iron Steak with Broccoli & French Bread <<
Okay, I've never cooked flat iron steak before and I'm so glad the eMeals has exposed me to it. Cooking it on the George Foreman grill was easy and the marinade used was delish. On the eMeals app, I had a heads up that I needed to "marinate ahead."

It was good to have that reminder and when I got home in the evening, my meat was prepped and ready to go. The other thing I really liked about this week's meal plan is that I grilled the full 1.5 lbs of steak, but only half was for that meal. The rest was put in the fridge for meal 2 (and this was in my cooking instructions). It made meal 2 less time to prep since the meat only needed to be reheated.
Meal 2 >> Steak & Bleu Salad with Strawberries & Crescent Rolls <<

Above are the salad ingredients and below is the finished meal. The meal plan not only comes with your main dish, but side dishes also. Who would have thought to pair sliced strawberries with bleu cheese and balsamic vinegar? Definitely not me, but to my worked! Feels good to be preparing something new. 

Meal 3 >> Feta Chicken Pockets with Fruit Salad <<
Meal 4 >> Buffalo-Style Chicken Pizza with Celery Stick and Ranch Dressing <<
This was my first time making pizza and that was fun! The chicken was great paired with bleu cheese (an ingredient used earlier in the week), mozzarella cheese and celery.

So, I would say (and my hubby would say) that all four meals I prepared this week were really good and none of it had I ever prepared in my home before. The shopping list was convenient with the eMeals app and this week's meals cost me less than $50 (which included buying some staple items which I should have already had in the kitchen).

I'm looking forward to my next week of eMeals. Here's a glimpse at my menu!

  1. I love eMeals! It's so great to have everything all planned out for you...even your shopping list :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Erin! I am absolutely loving it! About to head to the grocery store to do this week's shopping!

  2. Wow! Those are some delicious looking meals. I've been eating flank steak since my Hispanic husband introduced to me. It's always on our family favorite recipe list.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm definitely a fan of flank steak now that I know I can cook it so easily!

  3. Stopped by via Menu Plan Monday....I love use Emeals and use their menu plan a lot. It makes it so much easier to menu plan. Your meals look great and so healthy!
