They have a menu each month that you can choose from. You pick which meals you want and if you want 3 or 6 portions. They also have two types Bag or Pan – the Bag contains multiple bags inside with all the ingredients you need for a dinner, the Pan is a ready-to-bake option thats very popular (but those are not as plentiful as an option).
It’s nice – they have these stations all set up with all of the ingredients ready to go. Each ingredient has the correct measuring spoon in it – so you just walk down the line and boom-boom-boom – dinner is prepped! The proteins are all pre-packaged to pop in as well and the instructions are very simple.
Here was my bag of ingredients for Chateau Chicken with Almond Butter Sauce. You put everything together in these bags and then pop them in a large ziploc with the instructions. It’s ready for the freezer!
The other recipe I tried was the Pacific Rim Glazed Steak with Wonton Crisps. This was even easier – we were provided wonton wraps and a sauce – you just brushed those and popped them in the oven. While that was cooking – I took the steaks out of their marinade and grilled them up. Then out come the crisps and steak – dinner is served! The marinade had pineapple juice and was really good.
All in all, Dream Dinners was a good experience. It’s definitely cheaper than eating out (at approx $15/3 portions) but more expensive then the grocery store. I really did love having these meals in my freezer and ready to go. I just grabbed one out the night before and left it in the fridge – then when I got home – I was ready to go!
If you have any questions – I’m happy to answer them! Let me know!
