Do these 5 words sound familiar and drive you nuts; I’m hungry, what’s for dinner? I am on the recieving end of these words everyday times 3.  I have put one thing on my Birthday and Christmas wish list every year for the past 10 years but for some odd reason my request for a live-in chef has not been granted.  I really do try my best and I enjoy cooking but somedays there is just not enough time for meal planning and I fall short.  Sadly that means the pizza man gets called.

I have gone back and forth on meal planning simply because of the time that is involved. I have secretly wished someone would just hand me a menu plan filled with delicious recipes every week and now I have it thanks to emeals.  They plan my weekly meals and send me a grocery list. They even have an app to use that is my favorite thing ever. It has the shopping list and recipe all right there on your phone.

The first dish I tried was the Sesame Shrimp over rice under the Classic Family Plan and wow was it good, even the kids loved it!

Every week emeals sends you a new list of recipes for dinner, there is also a breakfast and lunch plan . Depending upon your families size you pick between a menu designed for 1-2 people, or family which is 3-6 people.

You get to pick what kind of menu you want, each meal plan comes with 7 dinners with a side dish. Here are your choices which you can change every week if you would like.

* classic
* clean eating
* gluten free
* low carb
* low fat
* mediterranean
* natural + organic
* paleo
* portion control
* simple gourmet
* slow cooker classic
* slow cooker clean eating
* vegetarian

Are you ready for the delicious recipe my whole family absolutly loved!

Sesame Shrimp over Rice

1⁄4 c soy sauce
1⁄2 t garlic powder
1⁄4 t lemon pepper
4 T sesame oil – divided
1 lemon for 4 t juice
1 – 1 1⁄2 lbs shrimp, peeled & deveined
Hot cooked rice
2 T sesame seeds, toasted

In a zip top bag, mix soy sauce, garlic powder, lemon pepper; 2 T oil, and lemon juice. Add shrimp. Seal and turn to coat, refrigerate for 30 minutes. Drain & discard marinade. In skillet, sauté shrimp in remaining 2 T oil until shrimp turns pink, about 3 to 5 minutes. Serve over hot rice and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

The sugar snap peas were equally delicious and easy to make. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, saute the peas in sesame oil until crisp-tender. Add soy sauce and saute 1 minute longer. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Easy Peasy!

I am loving this program because it has simplified my life; right now that it exactly what I need.  It has also made me make new foods that I never would’ve ventured to make before.  One other HUGE perk is they link up most of their menu plans with store sales. How genius is that?   It is truly an amazing resource for busy parents and I now have three well-fed boys on most nights.

  2. You are so funny. I love to cook and I still need a chef for school lunches & week nights. I prefer to cook with a glass of vino, so that limits my cooking time girl! The peas sound so easy. I always see them, but never knew how easy it would be. Thanks…pinning!
