Gifts for the cook on your list ~ 30 Meals in One Day Cookbook & Software {giveaway}

Country Mouse, City Mouse

Welcome to Day 6 of my Holiday Gift Guide!
Today, I am going to help you find some easy meal solutions.



Busy moms and dads know how rushed meal times have become. On too many occasions, dinner has become a meal on the run, and too many times it is grabbing something quick through a drive-thru. Being in a small town, we don't have a lot of choice when it comes to fast food, and I think that is a good thing, because otherwise how easy it would be to resort to drive-thrus. So, meal time often consists of the same thing week after week, and our repertoire becomes stale and uninspired.

To the rescue is the 30 Meals in One Day system.



Have you seen the businesses that are centered around this concept? Where you go to their establishment and you assemble meals and then freeze them for later consumption? The 30 Meals in One Day system is the same concept, but, you do it yourself in your home. You can prepare the meals alone, or with a friend. And, you can save yourself a whack of money by doing so. I have used one of those assembly kitchen places and they leave you seeing $$, and your meal + ingredient choices are limited.

3o Meals in One Day is a series of cookbooks and software. In essence you can cook a whole months worth of meals in one day and then pop it into the freezer to pull out and warm up as needed. I can see how this would be a huge time-saver and eliminate the stress of worrying what was for dinner. The complete system is three easy to read and follow cookbooks - Dinner is Ready, Lunch is Ready, and On the Side, plus software which allows you to make menus and shopping lists, as well as, labels to apply to your ready to freeze meal.




The books themselves are easy to read, large print , all the recipes are written in simple terms. Ingredients are nothing out of the ordinary, using items you either have in your pantry or that can be easily found on the grocer's shelf.

I love the idea behind 30 Meals in One Day. I think it is a great way to get a nutritious dinner on the table in a short amount of time. This is great for families, who have a limited amount of time to eat and then need to be out the door again for various activities and sports. Even for working couples this would be a great system!


My husband, who is the real cook in our home is planning to put the theory to the test (so to speak) when he has a few days off after Christmas. Using Dinner is Ready, he has read up on all the preparation needed to be ready to begin cooking. At the beginning of Dinner is Ready, you learn to assemble all the needed ingredients, as well as tools to easily begin making your food. The key is to be prepared before beginning and all should run smoothly.

In the mean time, we have been picking and choosing a few recipes to try out. Dinner is Ready has great entree ideas, but using the accompanying books you can easily pull together a complete meal. Hint * the books even suggest which entree to serve with which side dish. Really, it couldn't get any easier!

We love the recipes we have tried so far. Even, our pickiest of eaters has tried the meals. The entire system is so easy to understand, and follow. What was once a huge issue is becoming much more manageable, and it is so user friendly! Not to be forgotten is Lunch is Ready, it is chock-full of great lunch time alternatives, if you are like me lunch is one of the hardest things to keep fresh. The 30 Meals in One Day system is changing my (and my families) life, and it could do the same for you!
