Do you use any of them? Dream Dinners, Entree Vouz, etc?
Which one do you like best?
Which one do you think is the most affordable?

I used to use My Girlfriend's Kitchen which is now Classy Dinners to Go. They are very affordable, but the menu is more limited now.
My preference is to have them assemble the meals and just pick them up.
We are in SW Durham
Suggestions?
Thanks!

I've looked into several, even visited. At the end of the day, I'll buy a frozen meal over these meals. Now, if I found one that had a niche, like offering healthy meals, using all organic ingredients, I might be interested.

That would pique my interest as well. I was curious if any single people used those meal prep places, too. I noticed that the common sizes are usually 2-3 people portions or family-sized portions.

I stopped by Entrée Vous today and noted that they do sell single-portions in addition to regular (2-3) and family (4-6) size portions. I'm going to make some space in my fridge/freezer and then see about checking out Classy later this week.

I have used Dream Dinners a few times and love it but the portions are small so I usually have to make extra. I love the convenience and not having to decide what to make all the time or what ingredients I will need. I spread out these meals and used them about twice a week. The Dream Dinners in Sutton Station in SW Durham is for sale so don't know what is going to happen to it after this month if Mike and Robin don't have a buyer. I also have visited Entree Vous. Prices are a little higher but they stress that everything is fresh. With the current economy I will have to pass on both of these for now. They usually have test days where you can go in and sample the meals and you can also view the monthly meal choices on their web sites. You can pick whichever entrees you want and usually make as much as you like of each.

The Food Fairy is *wonderful*!!! The Food Fairy personal chef serving Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Durham, Carrboro, Chatham County, and Pittsboro, NC

Different concept, though... they come to your house, & leave you a bunch of amazing food, all cooked, portioned, & refrigerated/frozen. It's probably more expensive than the type of places discussed above, but I've never used those, so I can't compare.

The best part... Food Fairy specializes in organic, fresh, REAL food (I guess that's why I've never tried the prepared-meal franchises; it seems like they would use a lot of processed-type foods, which I try to avoid). FF caters to whatever your dietary needs are (vegan, veg, meat-eating, ethnic, low-carb, low-fat, whatever). They learn about your preferences, & give you the most delicious, healthy stuff.

Sniff, I miss having extra disposable income!
