As a mom, one of the biggest challenges we face is taking the time to take care of ourselves. We are not super hero’s as my husband likes to remind me. Our lives are busy, hectic and messy with children. We love them to the moon and back. So let’s take a moment for ourselves. It’s time to refresh in the new year.
Each week I plan to highlight a local business that will help you find time to relax and take care of you. Yes yes it's been much longer than a week since the last one, but well life happened.
This week I would love to introduce you to Eleissa of Pick Your Dish. I mean holy yum and a life saver! She invited out to her kitchen where the magic happens. She operates S&H Foods, a commissary kitchen in Tigard.
Pick Your Dish is a freshly-prepared dinner delivery service. Their diverse menu rotates weekly, so customers select and order their preferred meals, then pick up at designated locations/times throughout Tigard, Beaverton, SW Portland, Forest Heights & now close-in SE Portland. Once they return home, all they need to do is heat and eat!
Eleissa explained, "getting dinner on the table at the end of the day was one of the toughest things for me after becoming a parent. I love making it possible for families to gather around the table with a freshly-prepared meal - no shopping, preparation or messes to clean up means more quality time together. I love connecting with people, supporting local and building community. I source all of my meat from The Meating Place (a local butcher); Souper Natural Soups are available each week (not to mention, I use her sauces in any recipe I can!); I buy local produce when I can and I have started carrying zucchini bread (from Sinful Confections) and granola (from Twisted Oats), Nut Butter from Ground Up Nut Butter, so locally made breakfast options are available. When I'm making each meal, I'm also thinking about the customers who will be sharing it. I truly enjoy planning meals and cooking them, but handing off (the totes full of meals) directly to my customers and seeing their relieved faces is one of the best parts of what I do."
While we were chatting and getting to know each other better, she was preparing dinner for her customers and even making mine and my family's dinner. She was making Pork tenderloin with Pepperheads' Marionberry blast and Greek pitas (turkey & mint patties) with roasted veggie orzo salad.
So when I got home, all I had to do was reheat it, and dinner was served. Little clean up (I should have used paper plates), and needed to clean my wine glass but still no pots or pans. I mean look how tasty it looks, and as you can see it was extremely tasty.
