I had a woman call the newsroom Monday with a question. Where in Tacoma can she find prepared ready-to-eat dinners she can pick up, bring home and serve to her family of semi-non picky eaters?
It's a question I get from readers occasionally. I asked her if she had tried meals ready places where you can cook batches of meals, take them home and freeze them. She said she didn't have time for that and wasn't that kind of meal planner. She said she really just needs a reliable place where she can pick up prepared dinners on a whim. Oh, and the food must be good, too. Otherwise, she said she would just hit a drive-thru or order a pizza.
Can we help, she asked? I told her I would post here and ask TNT Diner readers where they go for good, fast prepared dinners. My advice was to put her favorite Thai restaurant on speed dial for those difficult nights (that's what I do). She seemed to want more ready-to-eat complete American style dinners, though. Thai takeout is not what she's looking for.
So readers, where do you get a quick dinner that will feed a family?
