After helping families put supper on the table for 11 years from their south side location, meal prep business Simply Supper has now opened up a second location. The north end shop is located in Albany and I was recently invited to check out their new digs and make up a couple of meals to try with my family.
Simply Supper offers a variety of different options, whether you book a session and go into assemble meals yourself, order meals that they assemble, or pop in to grab a fresh-2-go meal on the way home from work. You can choose meals in a 2-3 portion size or 4-6 portion size depending on your needs. They really help take the guess work out of what will be for dinner, and the best part? You don't have to do any of the prep work or clean up. Forget chopping onions and peeling vegetables. Simply Supper meals are scratch made to your liking without all of the blood, sweat and tears that normally goes into my dinner time crunch.
You can pick from a selection of 12 different meals which they change out on a monthly basis so there's always something different to serve up. During my session I made Santa Fe Chicken, Shrimp Tetrazzini, Red Thai Beef, Honey Hoisin Pork Tenderloin, Mild Italian Sausage & Pasta Ragout and Miso Salmon. All of the ingredients are set out for you at assembly stations with your meat stored in the fridge. You just get your meat, follow the instructions at your station and place your meal in the fridge until you're ready to take them home.
It was such a fun experience, and almost meditative and relaxing. Now my freezer is stocked and I can add in a simply supper meal into our weekly meal prep and planning whenever I need. We cooked up the Shrimp Tetrazzini and Red Thai Beef for dinner this week and both were a big hit, I can't wait to cook up the next meal!
The icing on the Simply Supper cake is their incredible involvement in the Edmonton community. Born and raised here I have seen first hand the generosity and togetherness our residents share, and Simply Supper is definitely a part of that fabric. Each year they host an annual meal drive. Families are nominated to receive a hamper full of freezer meals. Simply Supper also organizes Lemonade Stand Day. In 2017 there were over 250 lemonade stands scattered throughout northern Alberta and the event raised over $135,000 for the Stollery Children's Hospital - just incredible !!
A big thank you to Simply Supper for showing me around and letting me try out the meal prep process for the very first time. I'm hooked and will definitely be back. For pricing, menus or to book a session you can visit them online: www.simplysupper.ca
