The pre-packaged meal has come a long way since its Cold War genesis, now outfitted with dessert compartments, microwave-safe plastic trays, and the fusion reactor necessary to win the race to Titan. Take the lead in interstellar domination with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a meal for two from Fork It Over Catering on Young Avenue (a $27.31 value including tax).
Fork It Over offers grab 'n' go entrees, sides, and desserts handmade weekly for fresh, convenient meal making. The take-and-bake emporium provides pre-prepared meals perfect for individuals that are too busy to cook but want to institute regular mealtimes with their family, spouse, significant other, or bust of Frederick Douglass. Dinner for two includes two entrees and four sides ($12.50 per person), and with a new menu of four entrees and six side dishes rolled out every week, that means copious comestible combinations. Past principle plates have included chicken and ham tetrazzini, lamb curry with apples, and cumin-encrusted pot roast with sweet potatoes and parsnips. Delectable sides—such as roasted lemon-pepper brussels sprouts with parmesan, sautéed green beans with shallot butter, and broccoli with garlic—have covered entrée's flanks with steely determination and valor.
Fork It Over also offers diet-friendly dishes labeled with point info for health-conscious eaters looking to limit calories and fat, increase protein and fiber, and balance blood levels of red and black licorice. All meals can be frozen for later use and are available for delivery at an additional fee not included in today's deal ($5–$10). Call ahead to pre-order your meals.
Fork It Over Catering was featured in the Memphis Flyer, who said that the restaurant "feels like home":
- Walk past the fireplace to the next room, and the bungalow gets even better: Dinner is waiting — not just one choice, but a delicious assortment of entrées, side dishes, and desserts. Cod poached in spicy tomato broth with green olives? (It's yours.) Gouda mashed potatoes or baked fennel with Parmesan? (They're vegetables. They must be healthy.) Dark chocolate cake with lime curd? (Go ahead. Live a little.) – Pamela Denney, Memphis Flyer
