Dream Dinners/Super Suppers

Has anyone ever done one of these? I'm interested in trying it out just to have a few things in the freezer but I really value your advice. So, what are your thoughts?

I looked into buying one of the franchises, but I have never actually used the service. I decided the franchise was not for me. I think the concept is great though.

Picture this: You go to a local restaurant, order food to go, then you go into the kitchen and package it up yourself.

My sister has done that, but I didn't remember what she called it. I don't believe she is doing it now, but I don't remember why not.

Actually this is not quite right. By this example, the food is already cooked, but with these dream dinners and other places the food is not cooked. You bring it home and cook it when you want.

I looked into Dream Dinners last summer when I was going crazy at work and tired of pizzas and take out chinese. I just wanted to have some meals in the freezer that were kind of healthy. In the end, I didn't do it because at the time I thought it was kind of expensive and labor intensive for what you paid for.

I love to cook my own dinners but sometimes I am pressed for time. I think if I had a bigger family I would try it.
