A Weird Little Dream...

 

Good Morning !

Family Dinner started just a couple of years ago, as a weird little dream conceived over beers and burgers at Parlor Sports, our favorite Somerville haunt.
We sent a goofy but well-meaning email to a few friends basically asking; "Would it be cool if we brought you your groceries every week?" and people said yes. We started out of our apartment, doing 7 deliveries a week to our closest and most forgiving friends. In the beginning Erin's Mom helped pack the shares and we delivered them all in one car ride. (Throwback photo to when we first joined our shared kitchen. We didn't have bags or logos yet!)
We've since grown a little bit - to about 350 active subscribers, 25 drivers. Thousands of pounds of amazing local food each week. Hundreds of thousands of dollars put back into the local economy. We've all built a community around great local food and the people who make it.
All that from one crazy idea agreed upon over a double cheeseburger during a Patriots game.
We're still very much a small business and our single greatest area of growth is all of you. Your word of mouth recommendations have allowed us to do all of this and we are so grateful.
As we hope to take growth to the next phase, we would love for you to share Family Dinner with the many wonderful groups you are a part of; the gym, Mom's group, bongo drum choir, kick ball team or snarky Slack Channel at work. If you had a moment to tell your squad about us, and share your referral code - we would be most grateful. And heck! You'll get 50 % your shares too!
Thank you for everything,
High Fives, 
Erin and Tim

RECIPES

Instant Pot Country Ribs: Ingredients and quantities will have to be adjusted for size of ribs.

Oven Baked Ribs: Country Style Ribs are fattier and meatier than other ribs but lend well to a long stay in the oven bathed in sauce. Sounds Cozy.

Roasted Veggies with Blue Cheese: I like this idea to make the veggies have a snap of flavor. I'll add some walnuts and maybe some herbs or raw onion for more tasty layers.

Blue Cheese Sauce: "Hey Erin, do you include this recipe every singe time you send blue cheese?" Yes, Yes I do. It's so good. 

Parsnip Party: Let Martha show you the way.
