30 Meals in One Day Giveaway

If you are busy like me, dinner time can be such a hassle.  How would you like to spend one day cooking for an entire month?  That is where 30 Meals in One Day comes in.  Everything you need for once a month cooking is here, all in one place.  You just spend just one day in the kitchen preparing freezer meals and stock your freezer with lots of delicious freedom at family dinner time.  It makes grocery shopping and couponing quite easy!

I know, but how are the recipes.  They are great.  There is definitely something for everyone, because there are over 150 recipes to choose from.  I love how the book lets you know what foods to put in the freezer and which ones you really shouldn’t.  You will find things like Pork Chops and Potatoes, Tuna Bow Ties, Tortilla Chicken, etc.  Those are just a few of the great recipes.  Chapter 14 is a must read for all the great shortcut tips too!  The best part of this cookbook is that you can just make these recipes to serve for dinner tonight!  Like this site, it uses ingredients you will most likely find in your home too!

Now, the book is great, but the software that also comes with it is awesome.  All the recipes in the cookbook are already loaded into the software.  Here is where the magic happens.  Not only can you make menus in the software, you can make your grocery shopping list!!!!  It will list every ingredient you need for all the recipes that you’ve chosen.  How awesome is that?  I also love that I can easily include my own recipes in the software, so it also includes those in my grocery shopping list!  You can then print out the list at your convenience.  The software is super easy to use.

Since I absolutely love this book and software, I have arranged for one lucky reader of mine to get their own Dinner is Ready cookbook and software.  Here’s what you need to do:

GoPicnic

I am always on the lookout for great snacks for my kids (and me too for that matter).  GoPicnic fits the bill for everyone in my family!  That box that you see has everything you need for a ready to eat meal no matter where you are — in the car, on a plane, or even at home!  No refrigeration or prep is required, and everything you need (including silverware) is in the box!  These are compact enough to slip into your purse, laptop bag, or whatever you are carrying at the time.  They contain no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, no added MSG, no artificial flavors or colors.  Each meal has a balance of protein, fruit, and fiber and even includes dessert (and is under 500 calories!).  There are even several varieties that are gluten free!  There is definitely a meal for everyone; they have everything from Tuna + Crackers to Turkey Pepperoni + Cheese to Salami + Crackers.

We took some of these on a car trip to Green Bay, and my kids loved them!  They loved the silverware in the boxes, they loved that all their food was in there, and the fruit snacks always go over well.  They were able to take care of their snack on their own (Will needed a little help, but Madison did alright all by herself with this).  These were a hit at my house.  (Just thought of another great use — lunch at camp this summer!  Way better than the normal brown bag lunch I normally send!)

GoPicnic is a great snack and/or meal for anytime.  I definitely recommend checking them out!
