What You'll Get

Today's Groupon frees you from the daunting decisions of canned-soup shelves with convenient, fast, home-cooked meals from Dinner by Design. The healthy, well-prepared food saves days of mulling in the spice aisle, sobbing over chopped onions, scrubbing burnt rice off pans, and bleaching the mixing spoon.

For $50, this package includes six mini-meals (entrees for 2–3 people, normally $80) and three orders of smart sides (which usually serve 4–6 people each, normally up to $22.50). You can choose from 15 entrees and over 10 sides. In total you're getting the equivalent of 12–18 complete meals, depending on your preferred portion size. That's $4–$6 per meal per person—pretty much cheaper than any meal you can assemble from grocery-store bought ingredients (other than a box of JIFFY), a single apple, or possibly two apples (depending on price of apples).

Menus change monthly and feature 15 new items each month. The May menu features entrees including North African flank steak and Caribbean chicken skewers. You can customize ingredients according to taste or specific allergy conditions, and each dish comes with full nutritional information. Dinner by Design's healthy, home-cooked meals are almost faster than the supermarket self-checkout robot. The food comes frozen—just thaw them in the fridge the day you want to eat, then follow the individual cooking instructions available for each entree on Dinner by Design's website.

This Groupon is good for pickup only from the independently owned and operated Dinner by Design in Fishers. You'll be able to schedule a pickup time when you place your order.

Orders must be placed 48 hours before pick-up time.
