Family Meals Month: 6 Ideas to Get Dinner Done

Fall is almost here, which means that sitting down at the table as a family is pretty tough. If you find yourself grabbing food you aren’t proud of at the drive-thru window just to get ‘er done—we’ve got you covered. At DLM, we have plenty of fast dinner options that are Made Right Here—not from the freezer or deep fryer. We stand by the Food Marketing Institute‘s goal to get families to spend time at the dinner table and DLM wants to help you get there. Here are 6 ways to make it a reality!

1. Jack’s Grill.


I can’t speak highly enough about this. Besides the menu, you can literally pick out any cut of meat or fish and have it cooked in front of your eyes. After a visit to our Salad Bar, dinner is already cooked and ready to eat!

2. What’s For Dinner.

Recipe Hack: Meatball Hoagies

We have an answer to this age-old question. Every Monday-Thursday in the lobby of our stores, we feature the components of a recipe that can be made in 30 minutes or less. All you have to do is walk in, grab it, and go! View our favorites:

3. DLM Rotisserie Chicken.


Always fresh and ready, a DLM Rotisserie Chicken is a perfect ready-now choice with so many ways to enjoy it, like those found here: DorothyLane.com/5ChickenIdeas

4. Dinner Deals.


Customize your whole meal from our gorgeous Gourmet Take Away case. Pick an entrée and two sides (think fresh vegetables, pastas, and grains). Hint: Our chicken tenders get rave reviews from kids and parents alike!

5. DLM Flat Chicken®.


Whether you throw it on the grill or in the oven, this perfectly marinated whole, semi-boneless chicken is simply delicious! I love to roast some veggies alongside so dinner is done with only one pan to clean up!

6. DLM Meatloaf.


Have no time? Try our top-selling, classic Meatloaf or Turkey Meatloaf from our Gourmet Take Away case. Or, try a pre-mixed meatloaf from our Meat department that you can cook at home in the provided foil pan.
