With the recent expulsion of Pluto and Neptune from our solar system, Earth will have to learn to make its own dinners. Today's deal will help you get started: for $55, you get $110 worth of meal assembly in the kitchens at Dream Dinners on Belmont Avenue. Reserve your spot in the kitchen by calling ahead at least one week in advance. Check the calendar for upcoming openings.
Like a carousel made of beautiful meals instead of parade horses, Dream Dinners sports a monthly rotating menu of up to 17 dinner selections designed to be healthy and savory for you and your loved ones. For March, the chefs have prepared a series of delicious feasts, including citrus-marinated fish tacos, sage-crusted pork chops, bruschetta chicken skewers, chicken mirabella, and build-your-own calzones. Hungry chessmasters can plan five suppers ahead with meals that serve six ($30 average price) or three ($15 average price). Dream Dinners usually requires a minimum order of 36 servings, but this is waived with your Groupon.
Once you've perused the menu and scheduled an appointment, you'll come into Dream Dinners' hub for meal assembly and prepare your meals at organized assembly stations. Each station contains all the ingredients and steps necessary to prepare a particular dish, as well as Ziploc bags and baking pans. Once you've finished, pack up your meals into a reusable shopping bag (you must bring your own) for the ride home and head for the door. Dream Dinners will clean up after you without loudly mentioning how they have to clean up after you, unlike other maternal figures in one's life. The meals you assemble can be easily reheated in your oven or bathtub filled with lukewarm water.
Besides providing an ace in the hole for the stressiest of stressful days, your exhilarating experience as a pseudo-chef will allow you to jump from career to career under false pretenses, effectively living out the plot of Catch Me If You Can.
Valid only at the Dream Dinners Belmont Avenue location. Closed on Sundays. Bring your own reusable shopping bags.

Six Yelpers give Dream Dinners Belmont Avenue a perfect five stars:
- The best part about this is there's hardly any clean up, no meal planning, no grocery shopping, no spoiled ingredients that you have to throw away because you only used 2 slices of the ginger root your bought for a recipe. – Karen N.
- The dinners are inventive and yummy. The stuffed pasta shells are not to be missed! – Michelle K.
- We are currently saving a ton of money and eating better than we have in a long time. Also, I have to say that I'm a pretty picky eater and I have yet to make a dinner that I haven't enjoyed. – Lauren W.
