You’ve probably heard me wax on and on about the amazing Brussels Bistro “Monthly 10 Meal Pack.” I had to have been one of their first subscribers in December, and I just can’t get enough of this decadent, gourmet treat. I mean, folks …let’s get serious … it’s $89 for 10 entire meals from one of the finest chefs in our town, and many of these meals are well beyond a single serving.

Brussels Bistro’s hearty and delicious lasagne. This is 1/4 of the entire serving.

Simply subscribe at their website ( and, in the first week of the next month, Brussels contacts you with news that your box of meals is available at either of their two locations. Packed in dry ice and frozen, these meals are now easily microwavable for stellar result.Thanks to an extremely busy month of travel and moving (200 yards, of all things), I enlisted the help of my foodie friends, Greg and Terri Smith, to help me taste test the last of my 10 designated May meals.

Greg and Terri were the first to turn me onto Brussels’ genius introduction of vacuum-packed meals at the beginning of COVID. Eight months later, Brussels had come up with this monthly subscription plan. It just keeps getting better with these folks.

Brussels Bistro – Meatloaf in Gravy with Cauliflower Au Gratin

While I whittled my way through a giant serving of fantastic lasagne and another of Tarragon Chicken Pasta, my friends dove into Lamb Meatballs and the Meatloaf in Gravy with Cauliflower Au Gratin.

My friends were absolutely delighted with everything they tried. Brussels is definitely knocking it out of the park with this simple idea. There’s still time to get your June allotment by subscribing at their website. While you’re there, check out their ready-made family-style meals, too.
