The Cooks’ House TV Dinners

By Lynda Wheatley | May 16, 2020

Every week, 4pm–8pm Tuesday through Saturday, in addition to an insanely delicious assortment of singular takeout dishes, The Cooks’ House offers the most on-point pandemic meal options we’ve seen: a $20 TV dinner for one. Last week was a to-die-for chicken parmesan served atop Raduno spaghetti, a mixed Loma Farm-grown green salad with rich buttermilk dressing, and a sugar cookie.

The week before: Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, roasted carrots, and a melt-in-your mouth-marshmallowy dream of a Rice Crispy treat — an arrangement that made our Hungry Man-lovin’ childhood, circa 1986, pale in comparison. The week before that it was flank steak, chimichurri, asparagus salad, and a hearty slice of lemon pound cake.

Next week? We don’t know yet, but you can bet that as long as there is Netflix and a stay-at-home order, we will be binge-watching while binge-eating The Cooks’ House TV dinners.

Stay tuned to what’s coming out of their kitchen by visiting “The Cooks’ House” on Facebook or calling (231) 946-8700. Find it at 115 Wellington St. in Traverse City.
