Dream Dinners temporarily closing

My dear customers, it is with great sorrow that I write that we will be temporarily closing our doors until the New Year. We are selling our store and once the sale is complete, we will reopen our doors under new management.

I wish you all the best and a very happy and healthy Holiday Season and a wonderful New Year!

Many thanks for all your patronage over the past year! I will miss you all!

new sections: New Specials, Classics, Best of the Best, Side Dishes
and a Fast Lane!

Available monthly, these dinners represent the newest creations of our
executive chef and recipes developed with Dream Dinners partners.
This January's specials include body+soul Shrimp with Grapefruit, a
powerfully heart-healthy recipe that will brighten up any cold winter

Every month our guests ask, ‘When are you bringing back that dinner I
love?’ So, we came up with a solution that will please the entire
family. Each of these Classic Dream Dinners is available two months in
a row, and returns to our menu frequently.

Best of the Best
Once a year Dream Dinners’ guests choose our Best of the Best award
winning dinners, and just like our Classics, demand for these menu
items is high. Now you will find a selection of our Best of the Best
dinners available regularly!

Fast Lane
Short on time? Need some quick solutions to your dinner plans for the
month? Our Fast Lane menu includes Dream Dinners Classics, limited
time offers and desserts that are already assembled and ready-to-go!
Selections may vary by store.

Side Dishes
Do you need side dishes to accompany your Dream Dinners? We have a
variety of sides and accompaniments available at our store. Add them
to your order during your session, or call ahead to make sure they are
ready for you when you stop in. Selections vary by store.

So you see - lots of great things coming your way this January!

Lora's September Menu Review

Well, I've gotten the chance to taste a number of the dinners this month and thought I'd share my findings!

The Quick & Easy Beef Stew was just that - quick and easy. Should add the word tasty too! That was a crowd pleaser. I put the stew in my crock pot and cooked it for about 4 hrs. I found that I probably should have cooked it a bit longer - next time it'll be in the crock all day. But yummy!

The Oven Baked Almond Chicken is awesome! What a great, easy dinner and fast too! The sweet and sour sauce is yummy and I used it on my Coconut Shrimp too! Make extra of this one and your family will love you all month!

The Coconut Shrimp was too die for! I just loved it!!! They were just sweet enough and have such a great flavor! I am not a coconut fan, but knew I'd love it because I loved our Coconut Chicken from previous months. And man, this one was the bomb! Love, love, love it! Will be keeping this one in the freezer at all times! Here's a great idea: keep this one in freezer for your next party! This is one excellent appetizer!

The Dream BBQ Chicken we had last weekend for a Labor Day picnic and it was perfect! Juicy, flavorful...just a great outdoor grilling chicken dish!

The Tuscan Turkey Medallions are one of my favs! This dish could easily be on any 5 star restaurant menu!!

The Caribbean Pork Roast I just adored! We had it months ago and I loved the seasoning so muh that I made extra to use on other meats. It has such a great flavor and the jerk seasoning really adds a nice kick. Not too spicy - but real flavorful! Takes me back to the Islands Mon!

That's it for now. I'll give more reviews later! Stay tuned......
