{eMeals} How to be inspired to meal plan

I mentioned I'm trying to develop some new {healthier} habits. Well, I realized last week how getting back on track with meal planning helps this goal greatly. If I don't know what I'm cooking at 4 p.m., I'm likely to ask my husband to bring something home. Or we'll go out.

I like to cook dinner. But I like to be prepared with a plan. And I like easy recipes.

We have our favorite recipes around here. Cate will tell you she loves meatloaf. Ben will eat any meat. Greg likes to tell me how much he loves many dishes, but then says they'd be even better with jalapenos in them.

I was telling a friend recently that I have my go-to recipes. These are the ones I know so well I don't need to pull out my recipe binder. These are the ones I come back to every few weeks. These are the ones I know my family will eat. And these are the ones I share with others. {Click on that link for the recipe for King Ranch Chicken, a definite eMeals favorite around here!}

Several of these favorites have been introduced to the recipe binder via eMeals. This is a service that makes meal planning easier.

For me, I needed the inspiration that comes with having seven meal plans {including grocery lists!} come right to my inbox each week.

Seriously. Sounds amazing, huh?
