Disclosure: This post is not sponsored by SupperWorks but I am going to talk about them this week and the free products I received from them at their blogger event last week. If you have followed me for a while, you know I’m a long-time fan of SupperWorks – using their services and singing their praises as a customer long before now.
Whew. The last week was like a whirlwind. My little grandson started the week off with a mild case of croup and we finished it off with a weekend getaway. In between, I got to attend the blogger night at SupperWorks. They had a small but lovely turnout and it was really fun to make meals together. In addition, we had the staff’s undivided attention and could ask all the questions we wanted! At the end of the evening, we each left with two meals we had assembled while there, one of their frozen side dishes, and one of their meals for one (fantastic option for elderly parents living on their own or college students) to bring home. (Oh and some of their frozen chocolate chip cookie dough – a bonus with each order!).
For those of you unfamiliar with SupperWorks, there are locations in various places across Ontario, Canada. You place your order for the meals you’d like and then you show up to assemble them. It’s set up in stations, one for each meal. Each station reminds me of a salad bar – all the ingredients have been chopped and prepped for you.
All you have to do is follow their super easy instructions to assemble your meals. When you’re done, you have main dishes in bags and containers ready for your freezer. From the freezer, these go into a pan, the oven, or onto the BBQ with very minimal work. It’s often as simple as saving the glaze until the meat is done and then pouring over before serving. Or it might need to be basted once during the grilling process. Easy peasy!
The food is delicious and they use local seasonal ingredients where possible. If you have certain dietary requirements (vegetarian, gluten-free, alcohol-free) they can even provide you with suitable options for your meals too. AND if you don’t want to do the meal assembly yourself, you can pay a small fee to have them do it for you. They even deliver now (also for a small fee)! Birth or death in the family? You can order meals for the family and they will waive the meal assembly fee!
Okay, now for this week’s menu plan:
Monday: Oven barbecued chicken, steamed carrots, roasted potatoes
Tuesday: Slow cooker tortellini casserole (we have leftover Italian sausage in the freezer from our sausage stuffing at Thanksgiving and this is a great way to use it up), garlic bread, Caesar salad.
Wednesday: Balsamic Pork Tenderloin (from SupperWorks), bacon cheddar mashed potato casserole (one of the pre-prepared frozen sides from SupperWorks – we’ve had it before and it’s delicious!), steamed broccoli, corn
Thursday: Apple Maple-Glazed Chicken (from SupperWorks), egg noodles, peas
Friday: Pork taco bowls (use leftover pork tenderloin) with black beans and corn (leftover from Wednesday), Mexican rice, fruit salad
Saturday: My mom and I are on babysitting duty for my grandson while his parents go out so we’re going to order in for dinner!
Sunday: Chicken Parmesan Meatballs and Spaghetti, tossed salad
