Cook In & Save Big with Company’s Vacation Menu

BIRMINGHAM, AL (May 23, 2012) – If you’re hauling a crowd on your summer vacation and trying to keep your travel costs from spinning out of control (and who isn’t?), online meal planning service has the answer: a do-it-yourself vacation menu with seven dinner recipes that feed both family and friends for roughly $2 apiece per meal.

Available free to both new and existing eMeals subscribers on their personal member’s page, the menu includes favorites like the Low Country Boil – a one-pot extravaganza of kielbasa, shrimp, potatoes and corn that can be whipped up in a snap if you’re staying somewhere with a kitchenette or full kitchen – plus six more dinners delivering a week’s worth of savings. Like all eMeals weekly menus, the plan also includes a grocery list organized by aisle for faster shopping so you don’t waste time you could be spending in the pool.

For extra belt-tightening, the eMeals blog offers 5 tips to save on food while you travel. Following these guidelines will leave a little more cushion for entertainment, souvenirs and admission to your favorite water or amusement park. (Six Flags, anyone?)
