  • The location we had here closed down pretty quickly after opening.

    I prefer to cook at home myself using my own recipes. The idea of using their service never appealed to me.

  • Is that like Supper Solutions? I did that for while when I lived by myself, and it was convenient but it got monotonous pretty quickly. To expensive to use once I was feeding a family, though.

  • Don't know what you are talking about.
    Dream dinner to me is when someone else cooks it.

  • There was something like that near my job called Let's Dish. I went once after work with coworkers but did not like it. That one eventually closed, not sure if they are still around elsewhere.

  • I do realize they are not all over. 27 located in Cali, but very few elsewhere. Its around 4-5 dollars a serving and you prepare about 18 servings in one night (3 diff meals, 6 servings each) costs $74 dollars for that...Doing the math its like going out to eat really, but knowing I don't know how to cook and want to learn, I figure it saves me time going to grocery store, and is more healthy than going out.

  • Actually its cheaper than going out to eat at a typical/nice food restaurant. I forgot most meals say subway are about 7 dollars

  • We have several different ones here. I've never tried them, but one of my friends organized one at her house where we each brought our favorite "freezer meal" with fixings for everyone to make their own. It was nice for a change of pace but not something I would do often.
