I'm going to do it! I've decided that if I want my freezer filled in anticipation for our arrival back home with Paisley then I have to bite the bullet and start cooking! I did 'Let's Dish' with our FCC a couple of years ago, as part of a fundraiser. The food was good, nutritious and easy to prepare. Basically you go to a store and they have all the ingredients laid out, you can choose to make 4, 8 or 12 meals and since they serve 6 people per meal we were able to split the meals in half and ended up with 16 meals!! It is actually cheaper to prepare meals in bulk this way than to buy all the ingredients and make it at home! So, I'm going to do it! I'm going to take an evening, and use it wisely! We expect that we will be spending a lot of time in Doctors offices and hospitals in the weeks and months after Paisley comes home, it would be nice to have a psuedo 'home cooked meal' on the nights when we get home late! I'll let you know how it goes!

I have a friend who is not a fan of cooking and she swears by these places for healthy, nutritious dinners.

I do this and LOVE it. My place is called Dinner Studio and if it were not for this place we would probably starve or die from food poisoning, due to my cooking skills. Good on you for thinking ahead.

That sounds way cool! Now if only I lived next door I could cook FOR you while you take care of that new daughter of yours, and to boot, I could babysit my neice, her big sis~! What a dream that would be...

This sounds like a great plan. I would like to try it someday.
