Working Moms in Bucks County PA — Because All Moms Work Hard!

If you live in Lower Bucks County PA you are in luck!  Mamas That Work It will soon be delivering home cooked meal from our kitchen to yours, so you can bring home the bacon and not worry about cooking it or cleaning it.

family-dinner-300x200For many months now I have been using a service for meal delivery which delivers 4 meals per week to my door for a very reasonable price – fully cooked and a fraction of the cost of Blue Apron.  A friend of mine discovered the service as she was exploring personal chefs which as you might guess can run the same price for one meal as the four meals we received from this service.  I have not been happy with the quality of the chicken from the service and kept thinking about the other issues I have with it as well – but I deal with them for convenience and avoiding the alternative of providing my family packaged food or cooking all weekend for the upcoming week.

As a result I decided to create a test simulation to assess if it’s possible make the below improvements with a small incremental cost, this week we delivered to 5 families and next week I am hoping to increase to 10.  Yes, I see the irony – I will be cooking all weekend : ).  But it’s going great and reviews on the food have been fabulous!

Meals are delivered fully cooked with everything you need – directions included.  Meals include a grain, a protein and a vegetable.  Over time we will build the menu to include some healthy options and kid’s choices, deserts and breakfast muffins.  Meal delivery to Bucks County is on Sunday evenings.
