Document Update

As you can see we have a NEW way of getting and printing your monthly menu documents. As part of that change, we have also changed the type/size of labels we use. The above labels will print four to a page and line up with Avery 8168/5168 labels or equivalent.

    I sent you an e-mail. I am signed up with the Bundle ultimate 20, I am hoping I got the one month free. I am not sure. Can you tell me if I did. Thanks Davina

    Some substitutions to save $ on this menu are

    Sub lemon juice for the lemons and lime juice for the limes (they are juiced and cooked anyway)

    Regular raisins are fine for the golden raisins

    Also, Green bell pepper can be subbed for the red and yellow. Not as pretty, but half the price.

    I am trying to print up my first menu, prep instructions, but the site keeps sending me to the choose membership page even though I have already purchased a membership
    What am I doing wrong?

  4. Rebecca Cox says:

  5. Michaela says:

    Hi! How do the add on recipes work? Should I make them on my prep day? Which meal do the beef sausages accompany? This is my first cooking day and I’m excited!

    Is there a glitch on the Curry recipe? I used the swappable menu and that recipe is showing 10 cups of chicken, 16 cups of broccoli. Just seems like a lot even for 8 servings.

    • Lisa says:

      Michelle – when you are creating a menu in swappable, it generates the amount for making it 2 times. Hope this helps!

  8. Michelle says:

    That’s where my 8 servings came from (2 x 4). Sorry! I should have been more specific.
