Do you need to get dinner DONE?


In under 15 minutes each week, complete your menu planning, make your grocery list and enjoy new yummy recipes your family will love. Literally, these menu plans will make your life so easy, and dinner will be on the table, ever single night. Use the code COUNTERTOP at checkout to get the very best price through 2/15/17, and join me as we Eat at Home and transform our budgets this month!

I am so excited to have dinner done today!


It's my husband's birthday, and I think he's going to love dinner tonight. We made the Chicken and Gravy from yesterday's freezer plans, mashed potatoes in the Instant Pot (which I'm keeping warm in my crockpot), and I'll mix up a salad and steam carrots tonight in the Instant Pot at dinnertime.

(By the way, did you catch this deal on the Instant Pot going on today? Great price while it lasts, and after making mashed potatoes in it today I'm hooked!)


Since my littlest is sick I'm about to go spend some time taking care of her, and my friend Shannon and I are planning to do a Facebook Live coupon chat today at 4PM Eastern Time today. (We'd sure love for you to join us!)
