I am trying something new to see if it's cost effective and if it tastes good. So far, so good.
It's called Dream Dinners and it's a company that basically gives you a menu then once you've made your selections you go spend an hour with them and put together about a months worth of meals and then take them home and freeze them until you are ready to eat (or you can request to have them made for you and then you just go pick them up and bring them home). They even have a date night session on the last Friday of every month so you and your spouse can spend a night together putting meals together and listening to good music. My kind of fun! Ben's - not so much.
I'm not sure about the cost effectiveness yet or about the taste on a lot of the stuff we got but I have enjoyed eating delicious real meals the last few days - it's hard to make anything besides grilled cheese sandwiches when Ben and I are starving as soon as we walk in the door from work. It's just a neat experience. I hope that if I end up doing it again I'll be able to drag along a friend or two and maybe some family - they do private sessions if you can get enough people to come.
Anyway, it's not cheap, I sort of just closed my eyes on the checkout page so I could get through it, but as of now it's worth it to us because it keeps Ben from having a meal of cookies for dinner and it still let's me spend some time in the kitchen plus I spend a lot of money at the grocery store each month anyway, so I guess we'll see - and I'll let you know how it works out.
