What You'll Get
If your commute from work is consumed with anxiety over what dinner you can make with the dry lentils, block of cream cheese, and sack of potatoes left over from your last grocery-shopping trip, today's Groupon is for you. Don't bother swerving into the drive-through or taking the family out to an expensive restaurant. For just $50, today's Groupon gets you $100 worth of easy-to-assemble, healthy meals from Dream Dinners. Your Groupon could get you around six dinners for two or three people, or three dinners for a family of four to six. You don't even have to tell the family you didn't devise these brilliant creations on the spot. With easy-to-follow instructions and pre-cut ingredients, preparation is a breeze. A dearth of complementary ingredients will never stymie your dinner again.
The Dream Dinners experience is like a cross between a barn raising and a bar crawl, minus the alcohol and hard labor. After you choose from a rotating menu of up to 17 dishes per month, you schedule a spot at one of Dream Dinners' fun and easy preparation sessions. During the sessions, many have been known to dance between food stations, following easy instructions as they bag, season, and all but cook their families' meals for the month. After your session, take the uncooked meals home to your freezer and prepare them nightly for no-thought-required, delicious meals that'll keep you healthy, full, and free to think about times tables and monkey rentals on your daily commute. The succulent menu items will fool even the most fastidious foodies into thinking you slaved over the stove to prepare such deliciously complex dishes as cider-braised pork chops, garlic-balsamic–marinated steak, and creamy chicken-chipotle ravioli. Dazzle your dining-room table with fancy restaurant fare or serve up casual and comfort foods full of flavor, like sage-crusted pork chops and Tuscan chicken with fettuccine.
Eating out wastes money and piles on unnecessary fat and calories, but with Dream Dinners, eating healthy actually saves you money. Check out Dream Dinners' website to view the menus and sessions available at the convenient Cherri Park Square location. Sessions are typically offered in the afternoons and evenings on Wednesday through Friday, in addition to mid-mornings on Saturdays.
- Dream Dinners allows me to prepare foods with items that I really don't have in my kitchen, or I'd have to buy specifically for a recipe, like prunes, Sauterne wine, capers, baby corn, pesto, etc. – Judy Hedding, About.com
- Throughout the past four weeks, my little family and I have gone through the rest of our Dream Dinner meals. Some of them I have loved, others weren’t necessarily my favorite, but overall the convenience of the meals have been unbeatable, especially for a new mom. – loralee, No Fuss Fabulous
- I love the idea of assembling meals ahead of time, the instructions were so simple, and then having the meals in my freezer? It was incredible. – Carina, SassyScoops
