What You'll Get
It's difficult to cook a family meal that pleases everyone, mostly due to children's changing food tastes, onslaught of after-school activities, and secretly published reviews of home-cooked meals. Fix a dinner sure to garner five stars with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a package of home-cooked meals for pickup at Dinner by Design in Tinley Park (up to a $99.96 value). The package includes:
• Six small entrees, consisting of two to three servings each (a $75.99 value)
• Three smart sides, consisting of four to six servings each (up to a $7.99 value each)
Dinner by Design's chefs raise each dish from scratch, concocting a monthly menu of nutritional, freezer-ready family meals for quick preparation. Storable containers reveal succulent fare such as the peach-daiquiri bacon-wrapped pork fillets, marinated in rum and swathed in a sweet peach sauce, as well as exotic dishes such as the yogurt- and spice-suffused Bombay chicken with lemon couscous. Entice children to the table with a hearty casserole of cheesy smashed potatoes and a sun-dried-tomato-pesto couscous that is delightful both hot and cold, much like Schrödinger's coffee. Fridge-fetched fare isn't just for evening hours, as cheese-laden helpings of the Country breakfast casserole invigorate awakening stomachs.
Once thawed, most dishes progress from fridge to family table in about 30 minutes, and chefs recommend keeping a week's worth of meals in the fridge for easy access. Each item on the multifarious menu includes extensive nutritional information along with allergy alerts, fat and carbohydrate callouts, and weather reports from the freezer. Call ahead to ask about tailoring meals to suit special diets (extra costs may apply).
Orders must be placed 48 hours before pickup time.
