After the giveaway a few weeks ago for The Dinner Solution Software, the ladies asked if they could send me a copy of the software to use and review!
Yes, please! Of course! I’d love to try it out and share my experience with you all!
It was approaching June 1st, so I decided I’d use the software to create my monthly meal plan for June. The software downloaded and opened without any difficulties. I clicked right onto “Plan Your Meals on the Calendar” and there I was!
First, I loaded the monthly menu with the recipes they had pre-programmed into the software. And then I went and added my own recipes into the software to fill up the month. This process was quick and easy, and now some of our favorite meals are saved in the software.
After picking the main dish for each night, I went in and added complementary side dishes for each meal (these too were pre-programmed into the software).
From there, I printed out the grocery list. Yes! It makes a grocery list for you!!!
I glanced through the list and crossed off what I already had on hand…which was several items…because the recipes use common ingredients that are found in most pantries, refrigerators, and freezers! And I was ready to hit the store!
The software also offers “freezer meal” options so if you wish to make meals ahead or “double” meals to stash the unused portion in the freezer. The freezer meal portion of the software comes complete with recipes, instructions, labels and a freezer inventory list, so you can easily keep track of what little goodies are hidden in your freezer.
I loved that the meals were pre-programmed into the software. During this VERY busy month of my life, it really took the edge off the perpetual question of “What’s for dinner?” and “What else different can we have this month?” It was refreshing to have a tool that told me what to eat and told me what to buy!
*Disclosure: I did receive a free copy of the software and was not paid to write this review.
