Fresh home cooked meals from the freezer? Ones that you prepare yourself and then freeze until you are ready to use them? Could this be real?
Well apparently it is. I was leafing through the local weekly today and discovered two ads for local companies that provide this service. You choose however many dishes you want to prepare, register for the session (there are several daily) and then they have all the ingredients chopped and ready to go. They instruct you on how to put the meals together and provide storage containers as well as directions for cooking. And best of all, they do all the cleanup.
And you know what? It’s not that expensive either -
The two services in my area both charge roughly $210 for 12 meals that will serve 4-6. Considering how much time I spend on meal preparation and how much I currently spend on groceries for dinner alone, I would say it’s worth it in some instances.
These are the two services I located in my area:
- My Second Kitchen
- Dream Dinners
