Favorite Things Friday: Let's Dish

So far in 2009 we've been so busy that I rarely have had time to make complete home cooked meals, even on the days I don't work go into the office. After getting an e-mail survey from Let's Dish, I remembered how great and affordable I found their meals to be way back in January 2008 when a group of friends and I did a session. I signed up and went in a few weekends ago.

The meals have been so fabulous that I decided to feature Let's Dish in this week's edition of Favorite Things Friday.

Here's the basic overview--you schedule a session, select your meals and then go in and follow the easy instructions to put them together. Everything is chopped/minced/julienned and ready to go. Hate red peppers? Leave them out! Love garlic? Add a little extra. It is so easy. For our small family of two adults and a picky toddler, I split each meal into two 2-3 portion meals. So for $100 I came home with 8 meals which serve 2-3 people each. (Actually, for filling out that survey, I got a $15 coupon so I got 8 meals for $85--woohoo!) So far, I've found that we've gotten a solid 3 portions from each meal. Either Lucas has liked it so much that he's eaten an almost adult-sized portion or I've had an extra portion to bring for lunch the next day.

I can't tell you the relief and happiness that floods over me when I'm driving home from work or when Lucas is begging to stay at the park longer to know that a fabulously delicious made from scratch dinner is literally only 20 minutes away, courtesy of Let's Dish.

That reminds me, we've only got 2 meals left. I need to sign up for another session ASAP!


  1. I've always wondered if those places are economical;
    I think I'm going to try it!

  2. Are you on Let's Dish's payroll? If not, they should give you a little something for plugging them because I, too, am going to try them out after reading your post. I don't have children but my husband and I are still very busy and having meals all prepared and ready to cook brings a smile to my tired face.

  3. I'm definitely not on their payroll! All my Favorite Things Friday posts are about products, sites, etc. that I've tried on my own, love and want to tell others about.


Comments make my day. Thanks!
