I was pretty bummed when Dinner A'Fare closed its doors, especially since Baby 2 is fast on his way and I want to load up the freezer with healthy, good food to get us through those first months (it has been pointed out to me that I seem incredibly paranoid that DH and I are never going to eat again once baby 2 comes). Anyhow, when I saw an ad for Dinner Savvy in Apex I roped Sarah C. along to try it out with me.
Dinner Savvy operates the same way: you pre-pick which meals you want upon your advanced registration (required). When you show up for your cooking time you are shown the stations where your meals are available for preparation. You go to the various stations where detailed, easy-to-follow recipes and measurements are out, as well as all ingredients which are pre-diced and sliced. You put everything into plastic storage bags or other freezer appropriate storage containers and leave at the end of the night with delicious meals to cook when you are ready and want them.
The dinner choices were so diverse and I am really looking forward to trying them out. We had plenty of options (fish, beef, pork, poultry) and Sarah C. and I ended up making: chicken lasagna florentine, garlic lime chicken, shrimp & grits, slow cooker fajitas, and peppercorn pork tenderloin with sherry cream sauce. The menu changes every month, too.
Dinner Savvy has cookies, coffee, and water for you to partake while you are there. All safety elements (plastic gloves, aprons, etc) are provided on premises. There is always a staffer there to help you out, and they are very nice - we asked a lot of questions.
Our entire time there to prepare our meals was under an hour. It's a quick stop that pays off huge rewards for your family dining table.
There are some holiday specials going on right now. In fact, you can head to Dinner Savvy this time of year to do your holiday baking. Seriously, let them help!
Planning ahead with meal preparation always makes our lives as parents a little bit easier. Getting professional help with that is even easier. So check out Dinner Savvy!
