The ballots are in, the line-up is set…and the winners are…
Creamy Shrimp Pasta and French-Onion Baked Chicken?
Not the winners you were expecting? Baseball’s All-Star game may be next week, but this week it is e-mealz all-star week at our house. Since e-mealz does a great job of rotating the menus -we’ve had only a couple of repeats in almost six months- I decided to let everyone pick their favorite e-mealz meal so far. There was a lot of paper shuffling as family members looked through the stack of past menus and were reminded of early favorites.
“Oh yeah, that was a good one, too!“, was heard several times.
There were also hushed discussions between certain members to maximize their options…
“You pick the chicken and I’ll make sure the shrimp is covered.” and “We already have mexican covered, make sure we have something with pasta.”
I was there to make sure no one tried to influence the voting
Some wavered until the very end.
In the end, this is the line-up that was chosen:
- One Dish Nacho Bake
- French-Onion Baked Chicken
- 3-Cheese Ziti
- Sante Fe Soup
- Easy Gumbo
- Taco Calzones
- Creamy Shrimp Pasta
- Bacon & Cheese Strata
There were some surprises as well as some shoo-ins. Definitely some home runs. And unlike America’s pastime, no strike outs
How about you? Have you tried e-mealz? What’s your favorite dish? If you don’t use e-mealz, do you have a “family favorite week” when you let them decide on the menu?
