How many of us plod home after a long day's work, or a long day of anything, for that matter, stand in front of the refrigerator in a fog-like stupor and hope something will jump out at us that's easy and quick to prepare? Like many other working people, when I come home from a full day, the last thing I want to do is worry about creating some fabulous dinner in a short amount of time. Enter Dream Dinners. Founded in 2002 by two working mothers in Washington, their mission was to bring the family meals back around the dinner table with the least amount of effort.

La Crescenta residents Lissa Mooney and Lisa Sojka Uhern have a ready answer for the daily query, "What's for dinner?" It's called Dream Dinners, an innovative concept in meal preparation that eliminates the drudgery of daily menu planning, shopping, prep-work and clean-up by moving the dinner assembly process out of home kitchens and into specially equipped retail outlets. Dream Dinners is located at 4121 Pennsylvania Ave. and on Nov. 16 there was a ribbon cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. by the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce followed by the official store grand opening from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. In addition to raffling off ice chests and offering samples of assorted Dream Dinners meals, the first 100 guests received an Herb Crusted Flank Steak.

Cooking can be a nightmare, which is why Lisa Uhern and Lissa Mooney are opening Dream Dinners, a unique food franchise in La Crescenta. "You get tired of deciding of what to cook for all these people in your family," said Mooney, who is a nutritional educator with the Los Angeles Unified School District. The store will target busy mothers, bachelors who live alone and people who love to cook, she said. "It's a way to make life easier for busy people," said Uhern, who was an owner of a bookkeeping service until she decided to devote her time completely to the new business.
