What You'll Get
Sometimes there aren't enough hours in the day to cook, either because of daylight-savings time or time-gobbling time-goblins. Squeeze out all the hours from your day-rag with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of homemade, pre-prepared entrees from Make & Take Meals, located in the Springcreek Shopping Center on the corner of Madison and Rock Road in Derby.
Make & Take Meals provides a space for busy cooks to assemble and customize simple, pre-prepared meals chosen from a menu stocked with hearty freezable entrees that feed about six. Select the entrees you would like and schedule a time to come in and prepare your meals. A staff member will show you to your first prep station, where all the necessary ingredients, already chopped and prepped, are laid out, waiting for assembly like a tastier, less sassy version of Mr. Potato Head. The menu rotates monthly, but recent items include a chicken almond bake ($25, $13 for half), a casserole of tender chicken chunks in a velvety alfredo-white-wine sauce mingled with rice, celery, and onion and crowned by parmesan cheese and almonds. House favorites include calzones ($24, $12 for half) and chicken enchiladas ($24, $12 for half). After assembling the meal and customizing it to your tongue papillae preferences, make like a housecat and leave the cleanup to the in-house staff.
Spacious assembly stations, colorful walls, and kitschy décor create an environment that is ideal for catching up with an old pal, relative, or stunt double. The non-culinarily inclined can also choose to take home completely pre-made entrees prepared by the friendly and helpful staff. These in-house food gurus will aid you along your journey and answer any questions you have, sending you on your way with tasty, ready-to-eat meals.
