We have all experienced moments in life where we need to rally around our friends and neighbors. Whether it be to help them welcome a new baby into their family or comfort them in times of need, there is no doubt that food is one of the most popular and welcomed gifts that we can provide.
I was delighted to find out that Dream Dinners, the company that pioneered a movement to make weeknight cooking easier for busy moms, recently launched a new brand called ShareCrate. Similar to the concept of weekly meal delivery, however ShareCrates are designed to be purchased as gifts to share with friends and loved ones.
The concept completely makes sense to me because as we all know, as nice as it is to give and receive meals, none of us want to overwhelm our friends who may be overflowing on casseroles that have been gifted all at once. ShareCrate arrives frozen, in easy to store containers. Recipients can use the meals that day, or freeze them for the perfect time.
Each crate arrives with frozen, ready to prepare meals that feed 2-3 people per medium ShareCrate or 5-6 people per large ShareCrate. The meals that were included were the perfect comfort food and easy to prepare. We tried Sesame Glazed Meatballs and Basmati Rice, which even my toddler enjoyed! The crates also included Honey Garlic Chicken with Oven Roasted Broccoli and Rice, as well as a ready to bake Creamy Chicken Florentine Tortellini.
Each of the meals was easy to prepare and was accurate in the suggested serving size. When my crate arrived, it happened to be a week that my husband was out of town, so I took advantage of having easy, satisfying meals at my fingertips and used up the whole crate in one week. My friend, who also received a ShareCrate, saved hers for nights when she was feeling worn out from tending to a newborn and preschooler all day.
In either scenario, ShareCrate by Dream Dinners was a welcome treat! The crates are now being delivered throughout Raleigh, NC and the Triangle, as well as many areas throughout the U.S. In addition to being a thoughtful gift, for every crate purchased, a meal is donated to a child in need.
