Let's Dish!

Are you tired of coming home after work and trying to get dinner on the table? Have you ever wanted to try "Let's Dish"?  Join your neighbors on Saturday, March 3rd at 1:00 (Woodbury location) and make 4, 8, or 12 meals to put in your freezer.  When you join our "party" you will earn a free dessert.  Everyone 12 and older is welcome to come "dish".  Space is limited to the first 20 people who register.  

To see the available menu options visit: www.letsdish.com.  We will be using the February Menu which includes some of my family's favorite meals: White chili, Jambalaya, and Chicken Parmigiana. Each meal is designed to feed about six people.  My kids are 2, 5, and 7... I can still split most meals and have enough food for my family of five for dinner.  So I typically make 12 meals but split most of them... so I come home with 18-24 meals for my family.  I pull out about 2 a week to add some variety and give myself a break in menu planning.  I've been doing it for over five years and go back every couple of months because it is go great!

To sign-up: Go to www.letsdish.com.  Choose "Sign-up On-line".  Then choose "RSVP" under "Make a Party of it".  Find the "Victor Garden's Party" listed on March 3rd.  Our password is: "Hugo".  From there choose your meals and any sides you would like.  You will need to pay by credit card on-line.  Don't forget the coupon codes!  You have the option of either a free meal (2012MEAL) or $20.12 off (2012) PLUS you get a free dessert for joining the party.
