I sent a link to 3-4 people that I think would use it and get the best benefit from it.

I have a struggle with meals because I have 4 children and 3 out of 4 have a milk allergy. It is really hard to find new and cheeper recipes that don’t have cheese in them. And if they don’t have cheese they have some form of milk product. I get stuck in a rutt and make the same meals over and over. If I could make my weekly shopping easier it would be wonderful too. Shopping with 4 kids is somewhat challenging at times!

My struggle is accessing like a month at the time. I would love to put in what we eat and then choose from that in an organized fashion.

i would find this software so helpful given my husband is deployed and with four kids things can get too hectic to plan meals each day!

My biggest struggle with planning meals/menus is coming up with new ideas of what to have – I feel like I am making the same things over and over and it would be nice to have help with that!

I always feel my family gets “stuck in a rutt” when it comes to dinner-it seems like we fix the same meals a lot.

My husband had a heart attack and I have to plan his meals in advance so that he doesn’t cheat. After awhile I don’t know what to make anymore. I would love this program so I can plan and shop easily.

Glitter pumps are flattering and will draw attention to
your entire look, as will a nice pair of flats. Look for bold prints to become mainstream on single-breasted coats and other items of men’s clothing.
Their wearers are vivacious and playful, yet they don’t take themselves too seriously.
