Need help with dinner?



My friend, Carissa, shared this wonderful site on her blog. It's called Simplify Supper. I was very excited to check it out and I think it's a fabulous idea! I love to cook dinner for Alex, every evening, but I tend to run out of ideas after a while. We also tend to eat-out more, if I don't have dinner ready (or at least started) when he gets home from work. We can save A LOT of money over a months time, if I go to the grocery store and actually cook for us. Alex would eat the same thing every evening. In that way, he's not picky, but I always want to have something new and tasty, waiting on him when he gets home.

I despise going to the grocery store. When we lived in Houston, I would order my groceries online and have them delivered to my doorstep. That's how much I hated going to that dreadful place. If this service were offered in my current home town, I would continue to buy my groceries that way. Unfortunately, it's not an option here. Another plus about this site, it gives you a grocery list with each item you will need from the store. So you just print it and you're in and out of the store in no time! LOVE IT!

If you need a few new ideas for dinner-time (like me)...check it out!

Love to all,
Jill

thanks for sharing gurl. I can always use new things to cook. If I had my way we would never eat the same thing twice in a year lol.

What in the world?!?! You can have groceries delivered to your door???? I have to look into this!!!
Thanks for the site! I love to cook & bake, but run out of ideas and we tend to eat out if there is nothing planned the night before!

This is really cool! I have been desparately trying new recipes to mix up our dinners, too. It saves us SO MUCH money and stress to have dinner stuff planned in advance, makes life seem so much easier. ;)
I want to have my groceries delivered, too. We used to have several services here in Dallas that did it, but I haven't heard of anyone doing it anymore. Boo!

What a neat site! And, I love that it gives you the grocery list...very cool. I need all the help I can get when it comes to cooking. I wish I had a little more of my mom in me when it comes to that ;-)

What a wonderful Web-site. I've already found a quick and easy meal for Ryan and I. We are really picky eaters so it is difficult to change things up. But on the other hand, we hate eating the same things all the time. Thanks for sharing this wonderful web-site!

I just got my mail and OH MY GOODNESS!!! I do not even know what to say. I was blown away and maybe even shed a tear at your kindness. :) Seriously, I absolutely love everything. I had never seen one thing that you sent me so I was soooo excited! I cannot believe your generosity. Thank you so much! You are too sweet. I will be blogging about it in the next couple of days. I have already found places for everything!

Hey! I will try to get pictures of baby Julianne ASAP or at least remind Jill and/or Chad to post some. :)

Thanks for the dinner tip! With two toddlers and being a big 'ol preggo right now, this might be just the thing!

By the way, I love the song you have the lyrics to in your header - my dad used to sing that to me and now I sing it to my children!

It's so nice to "meet" you! :)
