Commutes from work are often consumed with anxiety over what dinner can be made with dried lentils, a block of cream cheese, and potatoes left over from last week's potato-sack fight. Strike down sustenance-stirred stress with today's Groupon. For $20, you’ll get $40 toward pre-assembled pickup meals from Let’s Do Dinner in Glendale, a meal-assembly kitchen designed to take the guesswork out of dinner. Each pickup meal contains 2–3 servings.
Created by two couples, Let’s Do Dinner is perfect for time-strapped professionals, busy families, mountain climbers returned from long journeys with poorly stocked pantries, and people who hate cutting carrots. Scroll through online menus and pick out your meals. Current monthly offerings include pasta formaggio; bistro steaks marinated in dark beer, brown sugar and spices; and spicy orange-peel glazed chicken.
Let’s Do Dinner allows even the culinary challenged to quickly and healthfully feed your families and friends so you have more time to think about your collective blog about kittens and mistletoes. Rotating recipes with vegetarian options include options for everyone. Effortlessly wean a junk-food addict off sugary treats or treat your stove-slaving spouse with this timesaving Groupon.
- The owners estimate that making 12 meals saves about 20 hours in shopping, prepping and cleaning up. Preparing six entrees at Let's Do Dinner takes about one hour, and assembling 12 entrees takes two hours. – Sherry Ann Rubiano, Arizona Republic
- Ingredients can be modified to meet each family's particular tastes or needs (call ahead to discuss food allergies). Most entrees can be split into smaller containers, allowing you to adjust the amounts of certain ingredients in one, or to simply split the meal into smaller portions. – ParentsConnect
