Check Out My Meal Solutions Widget #Weeknightmeals

I am always wondering what is for dinner? I love to eat and cook so it is something that is always on my mind. Maybe it was something I inherited from my great grandma, she had 12 children and she had to start dinner as soon as the breakfast dishes were cleared. Since she had to make everything from scratch and had to figure out what the meal was going to be. Maybe that is where I get the curiosity from. I also like to anticipate what I am going to be eating. I think that food is a great thing and should be savored and I like to think about how it will taste, smell and look.

I enjoy trying new recipes and there are many places to find them but I get lost in the recipes on some websites because there is not really an easy way to navigate. You have to have a specific ingredient in mind. I am not saying that is a bad thing but sometimes I don’t have the time to spend looking for a recipe when I don’t have something specific in mind. Sometimes I just think about the type of food I want and then I am overwhelmed with thousands of choices. I want something simple, easy to find and of course delicious.

I have a new widget on my sidebar from Kroger and ConAgra that is really cool. It is called Meal Solutions. You can find it on my left side bar. It will tell you a recipe or recipes by answering three simple questions. You just click your selections and you are introduced to a delicious meal. There is also a Surprise Me button where you can get a totally random recipe.

The Three Questions are:

1.What are you craving? The choices are: American, Tex-Mex, Asian and Italian

2. How much time do you have? Less than 15 minutes, less than 30 minutes and more than 30 minutes.

3.Who is coming to dinner? Serve 1, Serve 2, and Serve 4.

I really like the ease of this website and widget. I can just click it and know that I will have a great meal to create for my family. I also love that I can print a shopping list of the ingredients that I need. If you are not sure your spouse will like the recipe or have a friend who loves Italian food, there is also a Tell a friend button that will share the recipe with them. I hope you will check it out and let me know if you try anything. I know that the Hero Joes are delicious! I am going to try another one of the recipes very soon and share with you guy about it.
