In fact, did you know I am running a giveaway to win 3 months of meal planning though eMeals?

eMeals actually has an awesome slow cooker meal plan is designed to feed a family of 6 or a 2 person family. For the required grocery shopping, the family plan shopping would cost approximately $120 per week. Although this calculation is not store specific.

The recipes utilize mainstream ingredients, all available at your local grocery store, and appeal to a broad range of tastes and preferences.
