Mmmmm, just made a totally easy, delicious and rather healthy dinner, thanks to my recent Groupon purchase for Dream Dinners!
If you haven’t heard of Groupon or Dream Dinners, you are seriously missing out!
Groupon is an e-mail based daily deal provider, working with local companies to bring you products and services at a discounted rate. Take my DD deal, which offered 6 3-serving meals for $49! I believe it was an up to $120 value, so it provided a 59% savings.
Dream Dinners is a company that provides everything you need to assemble delicious dinners from easy-to-follow instructions to fresh, pre-cut ingredients. You use their website to view and choose your menu, make an appointment, and then show up! They have all of the ingredients you need for each recipe, so you go to the individual stations and create the dishes you picked, then take them home and stick them in your freezer to use whenever you want. All of the recipes are tested for the ability to freeze, thaw and then be cooked, and all of the nutritional information and Weight Watchers points are available for each recipe online.
The first meal I made was Chicken with Orange, Garlic and Honey. It was super simple to prepare, I thawed the meal in the fridge for a day, then browned the chicken in a pan, and then added the orange sauce and simmered. I served the chicken with steamed artichokes, and orzo with herbed goat cheese.
I highly recommend both Dream Dinners and Groupon to anyone looking for either good local deals and super easy meals!
