Entrees Made Easy - Oregon
Entrees Made EasyI had an opportunity to visit Entrees Made Easy in the Bend River Promenade. Entrees Made Easy is "a fun new concept in home dinner preparation." When you go to Entrees Made Easy, I recommend looking over the online menu in order to go in with a game plan on what dishes you'd like to make/purchase.
Upon arriving I was greeted by an amazingly friendly staff (what up Lloyd and Tina) who gave me a tour of the facilities and a run down of the home dinner prep industry. I was also informed about one of the main reasons Entrees Made Easy has set themselves apart from the competition....with their full kitchen. They make their own sauces, marinades, and rubs right there on the property. The sauces are not sent from a main warehouse out of Georgia or Kerplakistan.
After some instructions I was given my apron and asked to wash up. They are serious about cleanliness. I am quite the germaphobe and I was wondering how they handle having civilians handling food while maintaining the cleanliness. I had to wash my hands before the meal prep, don gloves, then after each meal, dump the gloves, wash up again, then put on a new set of gloves. All I needed were my OR scrubs. Look how clean it is:
Prep work was already taken care of so all I had to do was follow the easy instructions on what to put into which baggy and presto, done.
Entrees Made Easy will slice and dice everything that you need. I know that when I attempt something new from Rachelle Ray's 30 minute meals, the prep work alone takes me 34 minutes, not to mention the time to go to the store for that one item that I forgot or don't have in my pantry. I mean, who the hell has fish sauce? Not sure what it is, sounds fishy (buh dun dunt).
I'd like to say that I figured it all out on my own but Tina was there to help me out when I didn't quite understand the instructions or tried to add in minced ginger instead of garlic....I wasn't paying attention too well as I was trying to take in everything.
All in all, it was a great experience preparing three, half order meals and I look forward to doing it again. My next post will be about the Chicken Pad Thai that I prepared and we ate that same night. Mmmmm mmmm.
