BIRMINGHAM, Ala., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fire up the grill and get ready to make your own Fourth of July ribfest – complete with succulent pork ribs, four side dishes and the most patriotic-looking cake this side of the American flag – with an easy-cook menu from online meal planning service eMeals that feeds a crowd of 10 for just $75. (Fireworks, please!)
Provided as a free bonus to new subscribers, the menu focal point is a no-muss-no-fuss Easy Baby Back Ribs dish that bakes unattended in the oven for all but 15 or 20 minutes. Accompaniments include Potato Salad with Bacon, Marinated Slaw, Crunchy-Topped Squash Casserole, and an unusual Watermelon Salad with feta cheese and pecans. The Berry-Topped Thunder Cake dessert – served cold – features triple-threat chocolate (chocolate cake, hot fudge and toffee bars) topped by strawberries, blueberries, condensed milk and whipped topping. Your second stomach will love you for it.
Like eMeals' weekly menu plans, the Fourth of July menu comes complete with recipes and a grocery list to make quick work of meal planning and shopping. The goal is to help families get fresh, home-cooked meals on the table in a snap and save an average of $1,000 per year on groceries in the bargain.
For about $5 per month, the eMeals service delivers weekly menus for your choice of 50 different meal plans straight to your smartphone, email inbox or password-protected member's page on the eMeals website. The service offers classic and slow cooker plans as well as specialized menus for those who follow low-fat, portion control, low carb, gluten-free, vegetarian, natural and organic, clean eating, or paleo diets. Meal plans are available for couples or families, and for breakfast and lunch as well as dinner.
Each week's menu plan includes recipes for seven meals with corresponding shopping lists arranged by grocery section for easy once-a-week shopping. eMeals creates all menus based on the program you've selected (no need to search an online recipe database as required by other services), so you save time while also gaining variety you wouldn't get by picking familiar standbys like spaghetti and meatballs. You can also specify a store such as ALDI, Kroger, Publix, Safeway, Target, Walmart or Whole Foods to take advantage of sale prices that help shape eMeals' weekly menus.
