Since the late ’80s, people have been able to download entire meals directly into their mouths via S400 FireWire interfaces; unfortunately, electrons taste horrible. Today's deal e-delivers a finer culinary option: for $14 you get a six-month subscription to the online menu-planning service The Six O'Clock Scramble, a $29.50 value.
Each Wednesday, you'll receive an email menu with five healthy, delicious recipes that can all be prepared in 30 minutes or less. This email also includes a pre-organized grocery list with all the ingredients and a nutritional breakdown of each meal, as well as a tip sheet with fresh suggestions for mealtime, snacktime, and feasttime. For a preview of what you may find in your inbox, check out this sample, or refuse to sneak a peek at the delights and instead savor the anticipation of first contact.
This deal also includes access to Scramble's searchable recipe database, so you can customize your week of meals with menus including DIY barbecue meatloaf, chicken Caesar salad, and rotini pasta with spinach and pine nuts. Each recipe presumes you'll be feeding a family of about four to six, so if you're living the single life, make it all, stuff the freezer, and set yourself up for a few extra lunches, dinners, and food fights with that punk in the bathroom mirror.
- The healthy meals run the gamut from Parmesan Crusted Fish to Pineapple Chicken. The big draw is that all meals can be made in 30 minutes or less. Another really nice feature is the handy shopping list: You can print out a list of all the ingredients you’ll need to make five different dinners with side dishes. – Lauren Young, BusinessWeek
