New Virtual Party

Menus, Meals and More is now going to be offering a new option to fill your freezer….

The Virtual Batch Party

This is essentially like the typical batch party, except you don’t even have to assemble your own meals or worry about trying to coordinate a day to get together that works for everyone. I assemble the meals and freeze them for you until the pickup date. With this service you don’t even have to be in town. Imagine coming home from vacation and having a freezer full of meals to keep you going while you unpack and tackle the mountain of vacation laundry. The cost for a virtual party is only an additional $15 per person! Please let me know if you have any questions or are interested in participating in a virtual party.

Batch Party Information”

Batch parties are a great way to fill your freezer with lots of great healthy dishes for rushed evenings and nights when you have other things to worry about than dinner. In my house that is almost every night!!! Most dishes are prepared by just thawing and popping in the oven or on the grill for about 30 minutes while you heat up a bagged of steamed veggies in the microwave. The recipes all serve 6 and most can be split into 2 or more containers for smaller families or lighter eaters.

How it works!

1. Choose a recipe from the selections list and let me know. Pick your favorite so you are ensured to have that one. I will make enough of your recipe for each person involved.

2. On the closing date I will make a master grocery and estimate the total bill. It will be divided by the number of participants and a buy in amount will be determined. You will need to get the money to me by the buy-in date so that I can do all the shopping. After all the shopping is finished I will add up the actual total and determine if more money is due or if you will receive a refund. Usually the estimate is really close and it is only a couple of dollars in either direction.

3. When you come to pick up please bring a box or large shopping bag to take your meals home in. If there is any money due then you will need to bring that as well.

4. You will receive one "batch" of each recipe chosen as well as copies of all the recipes and cooking instructions.
