Take the Guesswork out of Meal Planning with Relish (and Enter to Win a Slow Cooker!)

August 16, 2011

RelishI don't know how it is in your house, but for us meal planning can be something of a challenge. Sure, we have the best of intentions, but all too often end up in the typical weekday dinner rut—grabbing a rotisserie chicken at the supermarket or calling the pizza delivery guy.

I recently had the chance to check out Relish, an online meal planning resource that helps take the guesswork out of the daily question "What's for dinner?" Each week, Relish offers its users 15 delicious and easy recipes. The recipe selection changes every Thursday morning, and you have the option of choosing kid friendly, vegetarian, simple gourmet, or super quick recipes. Each weekly menu comes with a custom grocery list that you can print out and bring with you to the store or farmer's market, so you don't have to worry about forgetting to write down any necessary ingredients. With Relish, the cost to purchase groceries for five dinners and side dishes averages $90. Not bad for a week of stress-free dining.
