Mimi's Cafe Holiday Feast To-Go Review and Giveaway ~! - Sammy Makes Six

Mimi's Cafe Holiday Feast To-Go Review and Giveaway ~!


Thanksgiving is next week and for those of us who are looking for an easier way to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving dinner without spending all day in the kitchen, I introduce you to Mimi's Cafe Holiday Feast To-Go. This is a complete holiday feast that can serve 6-8 people for $79.99 plus tax. Everything is already pre-cooked, all you have to do is heat and serve. That way you can spend more of your holiday enjoying your company, or watching the game, or reading a book! I am not a big cook myself so I can totally appreciate this, and it's not the first time that we have had a pre-ordered holiday meal. I love Mimi's Cafe so I was very excited to get this opportunity. 

We called on Saturday to place our order and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were told since it was a bit early that turkeys would not be defrosted till Monday. We placed out order and Monday afternoon set off to pick up the  food. 


Our order was ready and very neatly packed in a box. Because we had $100 to spend and the meal was only $79.99 I thought ahead and ordered an extra dessert for the chocolate lovers. I ordered one dozen Chocolate Mousse Muffins and was not prepared to see the HUGE tray waiting for us. Oh, and these were bake especially for us because I had just called that order in an hour earlier and even though they were out, they immediately baked up a batch.


Mimi's Cafe Feast To-Go includes:

whole pre-cooked turkey
mashed potatoes
mashed sweet potatoes
corn bread stuffing
steamed vegetables
turkey gravy
cranberry relish
carrot raisin nut bread
and 
a whole pumpkin pie
_________________________________

Feast To-Go $79.99
1 dz muffins $12.99
.30 extra per each muffin (only with this flavor) $3.60
_________________
Total paid: $96.58


We all oohed and awed at the packages of food once we opened it at home. There was also a print out with clear instructions on heating all the items. The turkey would need the most time, an hour and forty five minutes. Jack took over from there and by herself prepped all the food while the rest of us retired to our room to enjoy the scents wafting in from the kitchen. 


The turkey comes wrapped in a bag that you heat it up in to retain the juiciness. I just realized I don't have a picture of the sweet potatoes, but everything else is here. The cup of gravy was a lot bigger than you see here (possibly 8oz).


And let me just show off the muffins. They were not included in the meal but they are too good not to talk about. These are the most delicious chocolate muffins I have ever had, and so big you only need half. Very yummy and a great call because not everyone likes pumpkin pie so it was good to add another item, and everyone loved these. 


The whole heating time took less than two hours, while the Turkey was in the oven everything else was heated in the microwave. Two hours later we had our first plate haphazardly served and people lined up to taste. This was not our Thanksgiving dinner so everything was set up buffet style with everyone running to grab a plate. Jack was pretty pleased to have set up an entire dinner in less than two hours versus the six she usually needs. 

The food: was delish! It was very much like making it ourselves, just for a few differences in the stuffing and sweet potatoes which I thought had a bit too much cinnamon. The fresh steamed  veggies were so fresh and crispy, the butter and spices had melted in and made them absolutely delicious.That was my favorite side of them all. The two small loaves of carrot raisin nut bread were also a favorite. Because of all the sides and nicely size turkey there was plenty of food for all of us and everyone had more than one helping. There were six adults and 3 children, and still had left overs. Let me say  this, and I am sure that everyone else agrees with me. We had a most wonderful dinner and everyone was STUFFED at the end! 

Thank you Mimi's Cafe for this most delicious opportunity!

They are also so fabulous that we have a giveaway for one of you
to win a $100 gift card for a Holiday Feast To-Go. This giveaway will not end in time for Thanksgiving but the winner can use this for Christmas dinner or maybe just to eat at Mimi's Cafe and treat the family!
