1. How long will the meals keep in my refrigerator? We recommend that in order to assure the freshest quality in your meals that you eat or freeze your meals within three (3) days of purchase. Keep in mind that some items, such as casseroles, will freeze better than others and that fresh vegetables tend to come out of the freezer a little soft.

2. How long with the meals last in my freezer? The meals should keep in your freezer up to three (3) months.

3. If I freeze my meal how should I thaw it? You should always allow your meal to thaw in the refrigerator, not at room temperature. Just pull it out of the freezer in the morning and put it in the fridge before you leave for work and then pop in the oven when you get home in the evening.

4. Can I put the container the meal is packaged in in the oven? Some of the containers we package our meals in are oven-safe. Read the instructions on your meal to determine if your container is oven-safe or if it needs to be transferred to an oven-safe container.

5. Can I put the container the meal is packaged in in the microwave? Some of the containers we package our meals in a microwave-safe. Read the instructions on your meal to determine if your container is microwave-safe or if it needs to be transferred to a microwave-safe container.

6. Is the meal fully cooked? Yes, your meal is fully cooked. It just needs to be heated up to be served.

7. Can I pre-order serveral meals to pick up? Absolutely! Just give us a call at 501-315-4430 and let us know what you want and when you want to pick it up and we'll have it ready and waiting on you.

8. How long does it take to reheat my meal? Each meal is labelled with reheating instructions but remember, every oven is different. To be sure that your meal is ready, insert an instant read thermometer in the center of the casserole, being careful not to touch it to the sides or the bottom. When it reaches 165 degrees it is ready to go.
