With the recent expulsion of Pluto and Neptune from our solar system, 2010 will be the year for Earth to assert its importance as the leading exporter of prepared meals. In the spirit of thinking ahead, for $45 today's Groupon gets you your choice of six fully prepared meals from the kitchens at Dream Dinners located at Market Center. Delight in the culinary timbres of the efficient and loving food prep that justifies our presence in the galaxy.
Like a carousel with beautiful meals instead of parade horses, Dream Dinners sports a monthly rotating menu of up to 17 dinner selections freshly prepared to be healthy and savory for you and your hungry loved ones. Plan your suppers ahead of schedule with six choice dishes that serve three people, or one person with three stomachs and seven mouths. For January 2010, the chefs have prepared a series of delicious feasts, including TexMex BBQ Turkey Wraps with white rice and cheddar cheese, Pub Style Chicken with mashed potatoes, Crispy Parsley Shrimp over polenta, and Orangey Asian Chicken. Follow up the stressiest of stressful days with a kitchen ace-in-the-hole, as all your meals are picked up at the same time from Dream Dinner's Market Center location and can be easily reheated in the comfort of your oven or bathtub filled with lukewarm water. Place your order by calling any day of the week at least 24 hours in advance, pick it up, and consume.
A home-cooked meal is a time-consuming venture with enough random knife play and general pyrotechnics to register as a hootenanny. Take the hours of preparation, the patient waiting over a simmering pot, and the need for unflattering oven mitts and throw them into an old casserole filled with fatback and broccoli stumps, because the next six food voyages are booked.

Dream Dinners founders Stephanie Allen and Tina Kuna want to help families gather around the table for delicious meals. Like many parents throughout the country, the two women tried to coordinate a family dinner, but their efforts were often thwarted by hectic schedules. As a dinnertime strategy, Stephanie began to prepare meals with fresh, raw ingredients and then freeze them so they could be quickly thawed and cooked during the week. This tactic became popular with her family. Before long, friends, friends of friends, and chimpanzee families that mimicked their friends wanted to learn her secrets. With help from Tina Kuna, she established the first Dream Dinners location, and the successful food-prep business has led to the creation of more than 90 stores in less than three years.
At each Dream Dinners location, customers find all the culinary tools to prepare a nutritious meal—everything from fresh ingredients to meal-packing materials. Each week Dream Dinners features a new menu of fix-and-freeze dinners that can be made for up to six people, providing customers with numerous options for planning quiet meals at home or dinner parties with friends. All ingredients are precut and measured to ensure an error-free fixing.
