The whole premise is based on pre-purchasing a number of meals – a minimum of 36 single serving meals- in a 30 day period, grouped into clumps of 3 or 6 serving portions. The choices are broad and the quality seems to be really high (at least the two we tasted).
After ordering the appropriate number of meals, you go into the Dream Diners store on your assigned appointment time – they run from early in the morning until 7:00 PM or later in the evening – assemble all the ingredients and package them in zip lock bags and little foil containers. Everything is there, the entrees, the spices, the sauses, the recipe, everything!
Once the packaging is complete you take your bundles and freeze them in your home freezer. When you are ready to use them just remove the entry package in the morning to thaw, construct it and cook it when you get home.
The entrees vary but most bake in the oven for 15 to 30 minutes, some can be grilled, some stove top and some even microwave. Add a veggie or salad if you like and in less than 30 minutes you are dining on Balsamic black berry chicken, Mango glazed salmon, New Orleans Jambalaya, or Chicken with Lemon ad Artichoke Sauce! There is complete nutritional info available so you can customize and choose lower fat or sodium items it you want to. There are also veggie alternatives and heart healthy selections.
Another winner! Check this out … we bought 16 different 3 serving dinners for $220.00. That’s less than $5.00 per serving per person for some really tasty stuff. Can’t beat the price! There are some programs that offer even greater discounts for larger volumes.
