It's really helped me get 'back into the kitchen's and bulk prep meals on my own too. I used to be a back of house chef way back in the day, over 20 years ago.It sounds like, "A real chef does the grocery shopping for you and drops it off with the recipe."
This actually seems like it could be a real thing. Most people probably enjoy and value meals that have good ingredients and are made well. For many in this group, this may mean a trip to a good restaurant, as they don't feel they have the skill to do this at home. The push-back is the high price, the inconvenience of travel, and possibly, the loss of comfort of spending that time in a public place compared to the comfort of home. (For some, this may actually be the opposite, however.)
There are almost unlimited options in the "compromise" arena. Any grocery store will have endless variety of frozen or shelf stable meals that can be heated in the oven or microwave. And the taste and nutrition vary between them. The price is certainly lower than going to a good restaurant. (And the food may be exactly (!) what one would get at a bleh cafe. I do mean "exactly".)
I think I have to applaud a food service that leads its customers to better meals at a reasonable price. As their customers gain confidence, they may start doing their own shopping and recipes. With good food. If this transition reduces their orders from those customers, maybe they will gain as those same recommend that service to their friends as a healthy stepping stone?
I'll just quote myself and leave this here. I have several jars of canned chili based from last summer, combine with some of the leftover pulled pork, and some chili/pinto beans.There is plenty left over, but it makes for some good chili...
I'm instantly reminded of a lady at the nursery that had brought in chili on my day off but left me a small mason jar full of chilu with some shredded cheese and the last of the small bag of Fritos. It totally made my day! Your pics got my stomach growling.I'll just quote myself and leave this here.

My pictures show that my food isn't particularly presentable, certainly not compared to what Newmisty is posting...those are some commercial quality presentations. My griddle is usually a mess, the food is a jumble in the crock pot...but it is generally edible, usually pretty good, and better than the processed crap you get in fast food drive throughs.
Farmer's breakfast for the win Jarrod!
How much they want for it?They have one of those Blackstone griddles on sale at my local Lowe's. I was checking it out.

Great, now I'm craving cheese steaks again!If you want to look into it a bit, there is a really good YouTube channel called "The Flat Top King". He does a lot of great videos about care and maintenance as well as cooking different things. He used to be a cook in the Navy, cooking on a ship, so he has a lot of knowledge about griddle style cooking.
