We know…you only have a few days left before Mother’s Day and you need a gift (one that looks like you spent oodles of time thinking about) PRONTO! Well, have no fear GG readers, we are here.
The number one request from all the busy women in our lives is “more time.” Now, we’re not miracle workers and we know this is an impossible gift, but what about a gift that frees up crucial hours every week for the lady in your life who keeps it all together? Now that is a gift worth getting and we’ve found it!
Gourmet dinners to go! Amanda Smith Caterers in Darien, CT has created the En Route menu ~ a farm-to-table, take-home dinner service that provides freshly prepared meals for pick-up to go Monday through Friday. You or the lucky recipient of this gift order dinners daily or weekly and the dinners are packed in oven-safe, recyclable containers waiting for their pick-up. No time to pick-up? Utilize the handy dandy new Greenwich-based Quad Jobs and hire a college kid to pick-up for you!
We tried these delicious dinners and for an average of $13 per person per meal, we think it is truly the best “to go” option out there. We savored wild striped bass, skirt steak chimichurri with mashed potatoes, fresh arugula salad with jicama and pomegranate, and a deliciously sinful chicken pot-pie. How it works: Get online at amanadasmithcaterers.com and head over to the En Route section, order a gift certificate and pop it in a pretty card. Your wife, sister, mother, and bestie will love you for life. Know a mom-to-be or new mom? They also offer “stork dinners” which work the same way!
