I just got an e-mail that my beloved Dream Dinners (the one & only on Long Island) is closing. You may remember me mentioning Dream Dinners in the past – where they provide everything you need to assemble delicious dinners from easy-to-follow instructions to fresh, pre-cut ingredients. I have to honestly say DD made my pregnancy a breeze. There were times I was nauseous or just didn’t feel like cooking at night & I’d take a meal from the freezer to the oven. Let’s not forget Natie newborn time – hello Dream Dinners to the rescue! Since then my load my have lightened, but the convenience & low-cost kept me going month after month.
I’m going to look at the bright side. I do love cooking. I kind of miss it. I’d still prepare a couple regular meals a week, but now I can get back to being creative. I will say it’s been a LONG time – 27 months to be exact – that I didn’t have Dream Dinners to rely on. I’m wondering if it’ll be like riding a bike? Will I get in the same rut cooking the same things week after week just because it’s easy? Or will I rock out meal planning – this time focusing solely on healthy meals.
Biz, if you’re reading this, expect an e-mail from me for some tips & tricks to get back into the swing of cooking again! Sometimes I get exhausted just by reading all the stuff she cooks – but some how she manages to make tasty, healthy, and inexpensive meals every day 3 times a day for her family. She’s my hero! 😀
