Meal preparation is like assembling a mechanical bull—you can only proceed once you’ve located the correct Allen wrench. Today’s deal tosses the tools and goes straight to the finished product: for $85, you get one week of prepared meals for two people delivered by The Serving Spoon (a $335 value). Each of the five meals includes two entrees and two sides for a total of ten entrees and ten sides. You can purchase up to three Groupons and use them toward one week of meals for six, or three weeks of meals for two. The delivery area includes the DC metro area.
Though The Serving Spoon prepares a fresh menu each week, check out the sample menu for an inedible taste of what to expect. Example plates include butter-chicken masala with cashews, seared filet of beef with rosemary Madeira sauce, spicy Singapore shrimp over spinach, and the vegetarian-friendly vegetable Moroccan stew with chickpeas. Limited customization is available for those with food allergies. All dishes are prepped in a licensed commercial kitchen on the day of delivery to ensure peak freshness. The entire week’s savory entrees will be delivered at once, so save some space in the home, office, or secret-lair refrigerator for five days’ worth of healthy eats that are a quick reheat away from consumption. Simple serving instructions include such steps as: turn on oven, reheat dish, balance a self-playing piano on chin, and enjoy.

Fox News Sunday has featured The Serving Spoon’s chef, Kerry Nieh, discussing her delivery service:
Though online reviews are scarce for the less-than-a-year-old Serving Spoon, testimonials on the Spoon’s website say it all: > * With our busy lifestyles we were eating out or ordering in 3-4 times a week. We were able to create menus based on our tastes and health issues. Each week is varied and we are very happy with the quality. It is so easy to come home and have a delicious healthy meal in minutes. It has greatly improved our diets and quality of life. – Melinda > * The service you provided significantly improved our lifestyle, giving us the luxury of enjoying a nice meal together in the evenings. – Susan
