When I get to Dream Dinner, they have me wash my hands and put on an apron. They then give me a list of the meals and serving sizes I ordered and I go around to each meal station and prep my meals. You can order your meals in 3 servings or 6 servings. The stations are set up with every ingredient you will need with the appropriate sized measuring spoon already waiting for you. The recipes tell you how many scoops of each ingredient to put in your back. When you have a bag finished, you attach the instructions and place it in a fridge for you to finish your other meals. My favorite part is the staff takes care of all the clean up from the meals. You just have to assemble.
When you are done assembling, you pack all of your meals in a cooler that you brought with you and take them home and freeze them. Then the night before you want to make something, you just pop it in the fridge. Most of the meals take from 10-30 minutes to prepare and need very few dishes since you have done most of the prep already.
With Dream Dinners meals in my freezer, we have eaten out less and had good family dinners more, even in the middle of our hectic summer. I desperately wish I would have had these meals right after my last baby. It would have made life SO much easier. We have recently tried Campfire Pork Chops, Penne with Chicken and Peanut Sauce, Charhouse Chicken Sandwiches on Pretzel Buns and they have all been delicious. Our favorite things we have tried have been the Key Lime Corn and the Thai Peanut Chicken. AMAZING!
I love to have a simple dessert to go with our Dream Dinners meals, these simple Freezer Cookie Dough Balls are meant to be eaten raw and are kept in the freezer for a quick snack after a delicious meal.
Freezer Cookie Dough Balls (to eat raw)
If you love cookie dough as much as I do, but feel the guilt from eating it when you know you shouldn’t, then you are going to love this quick freezer snack. I make a whole batch of these and then keep them in the freezer for whenever I have a sweets craving.
You will need:
- 2 sticks of butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups flour
Mix the first two ingredients for a couple of minutes, until well blended. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for about an hour. Remove the cookie dough from the cookie sheet and place in an airtight container and return to the freezer. Pull them out as a snack after a Dream Dinners meal and eat cookie dough with no guilt!
