What I Made for Dinner This Week (recap & reviews) + last chance to save 25% off!!

I’ve been doing the Eat at Home Challenge this week in partnership with the Eat at Home Menu-Planning Service. And I have to tell you, this has been SUCH a blessing to our family this week!

We had a really, really busy week this week and having dinner made in the slow cooker every morning has been amazing. It’s been so simple (most of the recipes only require 5-10 minutes of work!), it’s been fun to make the recipes on live video, and we’ve really enjoyed the recipes.

In fact, we have loved this service so much that we’re planning to continue using it and our family puts a BIG stamp of approval on it (scroll to the end of this post for a coupon code if you’d like to try out the service!)

Here’s what we made this week:

MondayCrockpot Cantonese Sweet & Sour Pork Chops — Jesse LOVED this one. The kids thought it was so-so. Watch me make it live here.

TuesdaySlow Cooker Smoked Sausage & Sauerkraut Soup — Jesse and I thought this was really yummy. Two of the three kids liked it, too. Watch me make this recipe live here.

WednesdayItalian Seasoned Salt Chicken in the Slow Cooker — The kids really loved this one. Jesse thought it was okay. Watch me make it live here.

Thursday — Beef Shawarma in the Slow Cooker — Jesse and I really loved this one. The kids weren’t as excited about it. Watch me make this recipe live here.

FridayTilapia with Garlic Cheese Sauce — This one smells like it’s going to be really yummy! We haven’t eaten dinner yet, otherwise, I’d let you know! 🙂 Watch me make this recipe live here.

Why I’ve Fallen in Love With the Eat at Home Menu-Planning Service

The Eat at Home menu-planning service is an incredible way to help you save time and save money. You don’t have to worry about planning menus OR grocery list, because Tiffany does all of that for you as part of her menu-planning service.

She has designed it specifically with busy families in mind and the menu plans offer:

The recipes can all be fixed quickly, with only a few minutes of hands-on prep. Because the recipes use common pantry ingredients, it’s likely that you have everything you need to make many of the recipes.

It’s so convenient because all the work is done for you! You just choose which menu plan you’ll use, print the grocery list, go shopping, and then spend a few minutes prepping food each day and dinner is D-O-N-E!

Watch the end of this video here to see more details of the membership site and what you get when you subscribe.

When you sign up for the plan (it’s just a few dollars per week — or less!), each month, you’ll get:

  • An entire month of Traditional Menu Plans, including weekly grocery lists and printable recipe instructions
  • An entire month of Slow Cooker Menu Plans, including weekly grocery lists and printable recipe instructions
  • An entire month of Whole Food Menu Plans, including weekly grocery lists and printable recipe instructions
  • Each menu plan comes with recipes created for small family (3-4 servings) and large family (6-8 servings)
  • Color-coded grocery lists make it easy to swap out ingredients or whole meals
  • Printable Menus to hang on the fridge or near your calendar, so you can easily see what’s for dinner that week and your family can too
  • Access to the entire month at once!
  • 1 Hour Freezer Stash Plans – a new plan each month to stock your freezer with 6 meals in 1 hour!

You can choose to stick with just the traditional menu plan or just the slow cooker menu plan or just the whole foods menu plan. Or, you can rotate different menu plans on different weeks, depending upon what you feel like cooking or how much time you have!

    Hmm..interested to hear your thoughts on the fish…I can’t imagine fish in a crock pot–seems like it would turn into a big blob of mush. 🙂

  • Michele says:

    This plan looks intriguing. Three out of five of my family members are vegetarians. Do you know what percentage of the meals are vegetarian? Thanks!

  • Sallie says:

    How is this working with your nutritionist meal plans?

    • I eat differently than my family. I have for almost 8 months now, so it’s no big deal to make a different meal for myself. That might sound like extra work, but I keep it simple because I eat the same thing every night for 5 nights in a row. I just cook once and make enough for 5 servings and then don’t have to worry about cooking for 5 days. ?

      However, I’m on Phase 3 which means I can deviate from the plan a little so long as I’m feeling great, etc. So I was able to have a bite or two of each item every night. I subbed sweet potatoes for the white potatoes in the one recipe since I can’t have white potatoes yet. I also cut back on the salt in some of the recipes since I’m not supposed to have much added salt.

  • Amy says:

    Were you able to eat the meals on the eating plan you’ve been doing? I wondered all week if you were eating the same things 🙂

    How many meals per week does this plan run? 5 or 7?

  • Rachel says:

    Our family eats a biblically kosher diet, which means no pork (ham, bacon, sausage) or shellfish (lobster, clam, crab, shrimp, catfish, etc). I like seafood, but avoid much of it due to all the mercury and other contamination. Based on this week, I would only be able to use 2 meals. Is there a kosher option available?

    • The Whole Foods plan would definitely have more options for you. In addition, with many of these recipes, you could substitute meats — chicken instead of pork chops, beef sausage instead of regular sausage, chicken instead of tilapia, etc.

  • Kathy says:

    Crystal,
    I’ve tried other planning options before, but we eat gluten free and have several food allergies as well (dairy, yeast, soy). Would there be enough options available on these plans?

    I realize this is a super old post, but do you know how this compares to emeals? I wasn’t too impressed with the recipes, and I thought they required some expensive ingredients.
