Food on the Table Menu Planning Giveaway + $25 Grocery Gift Card

UPDATE:  The winner is Shannon [email protected]   Congratulations!

Are you frazzled at dinner time?  Do you like to cook but don’t necessarily have the time to find recipes to try out?  Are you trying to save money at the grocery store but find it overwhelming to match up all of the deals with your coupons and what you are eating for the week?  If so, Food on the Table may be just the thing for you.

Food on the Table was started by Manuel Rosso, a dad in Texas who was tired of seeing his family struggle at meal times.  A father to four kids, he often came home to a stressed out wife and hungry kids.  To compound problems, they had trouble finding meals everyone could agree on.  With help from his wife, Rosso started Food on the Table.

I had the opportunity to try out Food on the Table, and I loved it!  This program allows you to select your favorite local grocery store and, if you choose, tailor your meals for the week around the items on sale.  Food on the Table lets you select the main ingredient.  Let’s say there was a great sale on chicken last week, and you are stocked up.  You could select several chicken recipes along with a beef recipe and a vegetarian recipe.  The choice is yours.  Once you select the main ingredient you want for your meal, Food on the Table shuffles through their many recipes and selects 3 to 7 recipes for you for the week, depending on your subscription level. 

If you don’t like all of your recipe choices, you can chose to change one or all of them.  Food on the Table lets you look through all of the recipes available until you find a meal you would like for the week.  Then, a grocery list (organized by department) is generated for you based on your recipe selection. 

To further cater to your preferences, when selecting meals, Food on the Table asks you what is most important this week:  Save Time, Healthy Meals, Familiar Meals.  When I tried out this service, I almost always chose Healthy Meals, and I was quite pleased with my recipes.  Many readers may know that I have a dairy intolerance, but I had very few problems with the recipes selected for me.  Sometimes I had to change my recipe because of butter, but most of the recipes were healthy and tasty. 

One week I chose Save Time, and while the recipes would have saved time and would have been perfectly fine for me before the dairy intolerance, I couldn’t make any of them because they relied on canned soups and other convenience items that have dairy.  However, the program let me change my selection to get meals more in tune with my dietary needs.

Food on the Table is a new company, so obviously not all grocery stores are yet available.  They did not have grocery stores in my area yet, but as I have plenty of beef and steaks stocked up in addition to other meat that I bought at discount prices, I didn’t find that I actually needed the grocery store feature.  I loved that I could choose recipes based on what I already had on hand. 

I have quite a few cuts of beef in the freezer that I don’t know how to cook, but Food on the Table had great beef recipes.  Some of our favorites were Pepsi Baked T-Bone Steaks and Bacon Wrapped Turkey Burgers.  Right now they do not have side dishes; I hope that they will add those soon as it would help members plan a full meal.  Pictures on the site would also be a welcome addition.

If you would like to check out Food on the Table, you can do so for free, or you can sign up for premium membership for $9.95 a month or, if you sign up for premium for a year, your average cost will be $5.83 a month.  You can see the difference between the free and premium subscriptions here
