Is there a website or program that will let me select from several easy recipes, plan for a week or several weeks in advance, create a weekly shopping list and (here's the hard part) OPTIMIZE my selections so that the most perishable food gets cooked first?
I love the idea featured in this month's Real Simple
: a month of easy weeknight recipes, with shopping lists for each week and (here's the key) optimized to cook the most perishable ingredients first.
Problem is, I'm not really excited about the actual recipes used in that feature.
What I want:
1. Yummy, easy, recipes to choose from, or the ability to easily import from other websites. (No typing in recipes.)
2. Generate a weekly shopping list automatically from the recipes I select.
3. Optimization -- in other words, if I choose 5 recipes that I like, tell me what order I should cook them in to minimize spoilage (assuming that I bought all the ingredients in one weekly shopping trip).
I realize that I should be able to figure this out for myself, but I have an infant and we are short on time and brain cells around here lately. Does this magical website I made up in my head actually exist?
