What's For Dinner Tonight?

From Martha Stewart Living - Everyday Food
This is a question we are always asking in our household. Since I started subscribing to Everyday Food's Dinner Tonight where I get daily dinner idea texts to my phone, I almost always have an answer. This is how it works:
  1. Subscribe to get Dinner Tonight by text (and e-mail)
  2. You will receive an SMS message each day with a recipe idea. For example, Today's recipe is: Pork Chops with Oranges and Parsley (one of the many quick, easy recipes.)
  3. If you like the dinner idea, reply to the text with the word "cook" and you'll receive a shopping list SMS text to your phone and the corresponding recipe to your e-mail. This way you can review the shopping list to find out what you have in stock and what you need to pick up from the grocery store on the way home.
  4. When you get home, check your e-mail for the recipe and start cooking!
You can also get Dinner Tonight on your iPhone or skip the texting and get daily recipes in your e-mail Inbox: It works for me and our schedule so if you try it, I hope it also works well for you.

Just searched the app store, no Dinner Tonight listed. So I signed up for the text version - sounds like a good idea. Thanks for the tip
