Tomorrow we launch a 4-week fundraiser with the MOPS group from ECC. We are very excited about having another fundraiser - it's been a while. Which I think is rather silly, because we have awesome fundraisers. You get food. Good food. Not low-quality chocolate, pizzas, or wrapping paper. Thank goodness the ladies at ECC agree. So here is the scoop. You can come in anytime Tuesday, March 10th between 5 - 8 PM and make some meals. You do not need the minimum 36 servings. If you want to make 1, make 1. We are donating 10% of the proceeds to ECC MOPS. And this is just the beginning. If you come in anytime between March 10 & April 18 and let us know you are participating in the fundraiser, we will donate 10% of your total. Simple as that. Of course, we cannot combine this fundraiser with another offer. So if you are in Dream Rewards, use SCRIP, etc. where you already receive a discount or such, we cannot donate to another cause. Sorry. BUT, you can put off Dream Rewards for a month, or use those scrip certificates another time.
So, if you can, stop by Tuesday night. It's for a good cause and it's bound to be a fun time!

It's March! Spring is just around the corner and we can shed our heavy coats - at least for right now. Yesterday we participated in the Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce Business Expo. We decided food was a must, after all, we ARE Dream Dinners. We served up Grilled Sonoma Steaks and Chicken Mirabella. Both meals were a big hit. It was interesting to see how, as soon as Amy fired up the little grill, people came out of nowhere! I forgot to take a pic of the steaks, sorry. I will another day. but let me tell you, they are AWESOME! Tender steak, tomato pesto, goat cheese. Melt in your mouth. I DID remember to take a pic of the chicken mirabella. I must confess, I am a bit partial to the mirabella. And yesterday we cooked it in a crock pot. I'd never tried that before, but it came out just as tender and yummy as in the oven. We always serve this over rice or couscous so we can soak up as much juice as possible.
We enjoyed meeting so many people yesterday. And we look forward to an exciting March!
