Planning a menu, like buying a birthday present, requires plenty of time and the ability to foresee what kids will still like a week from now. Step into the future with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of make-your-own entrees at Social Suppers. Choose from locations in Lenexa, Prairie Village, and Lee's Summit.
Social Suppers provides cooks with kitchen space and all the necessary ingredients to assemble tasty, ready-to-cook meals. The menu changes monthly to keep forks engaged: During February, customers will transform precut ingredients into entrees such as coconut-crusted tilapia ($22 for full; $12.50 for half) or ready-to-bake lasagna wraps ($20 for full; $11.50 for half).
Kid-friendly recipes such as individual mighty mini meatloaves glazed in a sweet sauce help to nourish growing bodies more effectively than pajamas lined with potting soil ($20 for full; $11.50 for half). Easy-to-follow recipe cards guide guests, who can arrive for solo cooking or schedule appointments at the same time as friends; click here to read more about the process. Although not included in this Groupon, the kitchen also stocks pre-made ingredients for side dishes and desserts to accompany meals or build delicious igloos.
After acknowledging their own dinner-related stress, two busy mothers founded Social Suppers as a way to help others avoid it. Their four meal programs are designed for people who don't always have the time to prepare their own food from scratch, but still want to eat nutritious food. The staff prepares fully cooked dishes for pick-up, assembles them for future cooking, and stocks house freezers with pre-made dishes. They also help customers make their own meals within two hours in an on-site kitchen, using provided ingredients, recipes, and Emeril look-alikes. Though menus change monthly, each offers up to 16 healthy, internationally-inspired entrees, sides, and desserts featuring a variety of vegetables, meats, seafood, and poultry. The culinary curators also accommodate special requests, food allergies, and dietary needs. Each prepared meal comes in freezer-ready, labeled packaging to protect them against freezer burn, and keep them from getting into the ice cream.
