Hate going to the grocery store? Don’t have energy to prepare dinner after sitting in traffic? My Girlfriend’s Kitchen helps busy wives and husbands keep food on the table for two weeks at a time with a minimum of effort. Choose the meals you want from the weekly menu and schedule a time to come in solo (or with friends); they do the shopping and have the food and recipes waiting for you. In less than two hours, you’ll walk out with 12 healthy meals, feeding four to six people each ($229). Those who want to skip the communal cookfest can choose to pick up prepared meals ($259) or have them delivered ($279, zip codes 30318, 30305, 30309 and 30327). A six-meal option, cooking with kids sessions, and private parties also are available.
