If you’re anything like me (and like most of the world these days), I run at the speed of light working as a realtor during the day and then when 5 o’clock comes — I CRASH! Crashing at 5:00 is not good because that’s just when I’m supposed to rally and start my second job as Mom, homework helper (or enforcer), taxi driver and dinner cooker!
The solution to my (0ur) problem is just around the corner (literally). Terry’s Kitchen prepares & sells yummy food like chicken pot pie (more on that later), chicken tetrazzini, lasagna, meatloaf and mac & cheese that’s quick frozen and ready for you to pop in the oven.
Like many small business people, Terry started in her home and was making only her famous chicken pot pie. She soon realized that the demand for prepared dinner was strong and moved on to a commercial space located at 4218 St. John’s Avenue in Jacksonville, FL over 9 years ago. Carolyn Patterson, who has been with Terry for over seven years, says that Terry will also prepare food in your dishes for a dinner party if you drop them off a week in advance. It’ll be our little secret that you didn’t prepare that fabulous gourmet meal!
Terry also makes some desserts, appetizers and breakfast items like steaming hot cinnamon rolls so load up your freezer and save yourself from a meltdown!
Terry’s Kitchen is open M – F from 10 am – 6 pm. Their phone number is 904-388-1748 and prices range from $7.75 for an individual serving size to $25.75 for her Mega size dishes that will feed a large hungry family. If you go by, tell Terry that you read about her on my blog!
Thanks for reading. I hope you’ll join me on my next adventure in the Avondale, Ortega and Riverside neighborhoods!
