Skip Making Dinner with Skip the Dishes

A Day in the Life Family Kids Parenting Recipes Reviews & Giveaways Things We Love Tried & Tested Win This

Every year when the kids birthdays roll around I get into panic mode. There is so much to do and plan…or so it feels. I guess it’s because the parties are one month apart from each other, so lots to do in a short period of time.

Plus, what I do for one kid, I have to do for the other.

Now that the kids are getting older, their parties are becoming a little bigger. More friends = higher guest list. So last year and again this year, we decided to hold a separate ‘party’ for the immediate family. I mean, I don’t think our parents and siblings really want to hang out and do nothing at a 5 year old birthday party.

However, this obviously means more work for my husband and I. Additional planning, more shopping and obviously a lot more food.

So this year for party round number two, I really didn’t want to have to think about cooking and cleaning for a family dinner for 12. I didn’t want to spend my entire Friday in the kitchen, when I had so many other things to do to prepare for the kids party the next day.

Life can be complicated enough, but ordering in doesn’t have to be, right?!

We order in often so I really didn’t want to do the same old dinner again. I thought and thought about what we can order knowing that a lot of places in my area don’t deliver.

And then I found “The One”. Welcome, Skip the Dishes!

Skip the Dishes is a better way to get your food from restaurants that you love. They have thousands of restaurants, including local favorites that don’t normally deliver! The online system is so easy to use and navigate, and in no time, I had an order placed for delivery at the time that I wanted!

Let me tell you how it works:

1. Go to

2. Create account and enter your full address


From there, Skip the Dishes will search for participating restaurants in your area both for delivery and pick up.

3. Find the restaurant of your choice

skip4. Navigate through the menu and select the items you wish to order


5. Once you have ordered all of your items, place your order and pay on line.

6. You will receive a notification confirming your order has been placed and you are good to go!

It couldn’t be easier.

Plus, they also confirm when your order is on its way (if you choose delivery) so that you can make sure you are ready!


Let me just tell you how easy and stress free this was. Skip the Dishes really takes the guess work out of what dinner to prepare or what to buy when you have little to no time!

Product arrives and you just plate and go!


This really was so simple and I didn’t need to worry about ANYTHING. Happy family and happy birthday boy! I can honestly say this won’t be the last time I order!

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.

    I THINK I wound want some pizza!! but not sure, and I would want to give this to my daughter who doesnt eat nearly enough (She moved, so she’s “frugal” about eating because meats too expensive she says, so I know if I gave this to her she’s eat all sorts of wonderful foods she’s denying herself right now)
