Have you heard of eMeals? I have mentioned them a few times in the past, and this week I tried out another one of their recipes. eMeals makes menu planning simple for a variety of reasons. One of those being that they actually send you the menu plan for the week based on your preference, plus you can also base it on what store you will be shopping at. Then, the menu plan includes the grocery list and even the prices! Can you believe that?
I printed off one this past week for Walmart and it actually showed me my estimated total based on the typical price of each item at Walmart. I was shocked. Not only does it take the work out of it for you on menu planning but it also allows you to budget accordingly.
This week I tried the recipe for the Slow Cooker Apricot Pork Chops. Although I do love the side item suggestions for their recipes, I typically do simple sides like steamed veggies. I decided to stick with simply the carrots that were in the crock pot with these pork chops on this one. Then, I also served it with a slice of bread and butter.
Pork Chops are a very affordable meal, which is one of the bonuses of this recipe. Plus, the stress of my day just falls off when I use a slow cooker!
Time for dinner!
