I had often heard the saying that desperation is the mother of invention, and now I believe it
Manhattan Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2008
In today's tough economic times, planning meals is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to help your family save time and money. In many families, planning meals often turns into one of the most stressful parts of each day. By using the Dinner a la Card system, you can organize meals made on a regular basis by listing the ingredients needed for the meal along with a list of side dishes and condiments required to round-out the meal. The end result is not having to make multiple trips to the grocery store and shopping more efficiently when you are there.
"I had often heard the saying that desperation is the mother of invention, and now I believe it," said Michele Lewis, creator of the Dinner a la Card system. "When I got married, I realized that I had exactly three dinners in my repertoire, and meal planning quickly became a source of stress for me. So, armed with index cards and a hole punch, I set out to design a system that would work for me. The result is Dinner a la Card!"
The system is made up of cards that are designated for breakfast, lunch, dinner, sides, desserts, kid meals and fridge/pantry staples. You simply fill in the ingredients for meals that you make on a regular basis along with all of the sides and condiments. The cards can then be kept in your purse, briefcase or diaper bag so they are close at hand when you go shopping or sit down to make a shopping list.
Complete kits and separately packaged cards are available online at Dinner a la Card for $22.95 plus shipping/handling. The starter package includes 20 dinner cards, 5 lunch cards, 5 breakfast cards, 5 kid cards, 3 sides cards, 3 dessert cards, 3 staples, 1 take-out card and 1 shopping list pad.
