Family Dinners. It’s a gift.

There are two things we all can agree on as parents–we are busier than ever and we wish we had more time with our families. Dinnertime is one time each day when we can slow down for a moment and connect with our families. We want you to meet the Ryan family from Princeton.  Trish Ryan is a wife and mom, who, through the love of food and family, is on a mission to share family recipes that she has acquired over time and help other families gain more quality time together around the dinner table.

She strives to make the dinner process easier so you can enjoy sitting down together as a family.  We wanted to know more…

She started a local company called “Time for Dinner” and her goals for you are three-fold

  • To stop staring at a pantry full of food with no idea what to cook
  • To avoid you trying to make a favorite family meal, and realizing that you don’t have an essential ingredient
  • To forgo ordering greasy takeout for the second or third time in a week

A subscription to ‘Time for Dinner’ will provide you with recipes for five simple, healthy meals including side dishes each week. Meal plans are created to be efficient & eliminate waste. They don’t just grab random recipes and call it a meal plan. They mix and match the list of ingredients to create balanced dinners that play off each other. They also include an organized shopping list, cost estimates to help keep you on budget, a list of pantry items you will need, and guides to meal preparation.  Best yet, a meal prep list so you can prep lots of ingredients at the beginning of the week and store in the fridge in air-tight containers so making your dinner is even easier. Voila!

Wondering what kinds of dinners you’ll be enjoying with your family.  A sample menu might look like this:

Meal 1 – Pear and Apple Soup with Grilled Pepper Jack Cheese Sandwiches

Meal 2 – Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Roasted Cauliflower and Grapes

Meal 3 – Walnut Crusted Chicken Cutlets with White Bean and Arugula Salad

Meal 4 – Chicken with Rice and Swiss Chard

Meal 5 – Skirt Steak with Beets and Greens

So, if you are looking for a great holiday gift this season, you might consider the gift of conversation and great family moments from Time For Dinner.  They offer two subscription options – three months for $18 or an annual subscription for $60.

As a special offer to Princeton Scoop readers on annual plans, use the discount code TFD50SCOOP to receive 50% off. That’s right – a whole year of meal plans, recipes and shopping lists for only $30.
