Taking the Nightmare out of Dinner with Dream Dinners in Fort Mill

Make sure you check out the awesome deal at the bottom of this blog and join me for fun night!

If you're a mom like me, with kids like mine you're all too familiar with the stress and time suck that getting dinner on the table each night creates.

It's my least favorite time of day - trying to figure out what to make, prepping and cooking while answering questions, breaking up squabbles and staving off the pleas of near-death-hunger from the kids as they beg for a snack.

"It's ALMOST done guys!" I lie through my teeth as I start thawing the chicken. There has got to be an easier, healthy way that doesn't include going out to dinner or drive-thru food - and there is.

Recently I was invited to Dream Dinners in Fort Mill where Suzanne and staff showed me how to wake up from my nightmare-like dinner rut, and start dreaming with their easy wholesome, tasty meal prep. Dream Dinner's mission is to bring families back together around the dinner table, so they can connect and enjoy dinner time together.

The process is easy. Order your meals online in 3 or 6 serving increments from the monthly meals list - I had a hard time choosing from all the tasty sounding dishes! Stop by the store and put all your meals together in freezer bags or baking pans to place in your freezer. The night before your dinner pop the meal in the fridge, arrive home to fire up the oven or stove and follow their easy cooking instructions, dinner's ready and delicious in 20-40 minutes.

Here are the recipe cards you'll receive when you arrive, they are in either 3 serving or 6 serving allotments.

Next, you work your way around the prep kitchen - note there is ZERO chopping, slicing or frustration. Follow the color coded list on the recipe. You'll have both pre-measured ingredients and ingredients you use the color coded measuring tools to place into your bag.

Load up all your bags with their simple cooking instructions, pop them in the freezer - and you're DONE. Y'all - I felt accomplished. I prepped 5 meals in less than 30 minutes. What will I do with all that extra pre-dinner time?!

As I moved from station to station they offered tastes from next month's menu (this one was Chicken Parmesan), plus ooey-gooey fresh baked cookies and coffee. These are my people.

If you're short on time they also offer a freezer full of grab and go meals and sides so you can skip the high price tag of dining out and enjoy a wholesome, home cooked meal together.

Here is my Facebook Live video with more info about Dream Dinners. Intro Video with tour of facility.
