I have to tell you all about the newest addition to Pybus Public Market, because I think it just might make your Tuesday evenings a whole lot more enjoyable.

It’s a once-a-week meal prep service called From Scratch @ Pybus.

Here’s how it works:

Select and pay for your meals online by 3 p.m. Saturday for a Tuesday pick-up. Then on Tuesday, any time between 4:30-5:30 p.m., stop by the Community Kitchen in the main Pybus concourse and pick up your food. It will be wrapped up with your name on it, hot and ready to serve as soon as you get home. (Choose a meal for two for $25 or a meal for four for $45.) From Scratch does the shopping, the chopping, and the cooking, so you can enjoy more time with the people you love.

On the menu next Tuesday: Chicken enchiladas in a verde cream sauce, Mexican rice and refried beans. Yum!

From Scratch is just the latest cooking project by Linda Brown, a recent transplant to Wenatchee from the Bay Area. The mother of two grown children, Linda has been dishing up meals for large groups for many years. She learned to cook with the help of a professionally trained chef friend, and ran a dinner prep and delivery service out of her  kitchen in California for many years. Her food is good old-fashioned American dinner fare, and always flavorful. “I can’t stand bland or dry food,” she told me. Her portions are generous and the food is fresh, simple and seasonal — real meals for real busy families!

Pybus executive director Steve Robinson thinks Linda’s cooking is a natural fit for the market.

“Linda wanted to be at Pybus, and we want her passion for excellent foods here, so we jointly invented this concept of a one-day-a-week dinner take-out,” he said. “Many people don’t have the time to cook a healthy dinner every night, so they resort to fast food or snacks. From Scratch @ Pybus solves that problem — at least on Tuesdays — by providing a cost effective and easy way to get a hearty, healthy home cooked meal, mostly made with local ingredients.”

I couldn’t agree more. There’s something magical that happens when a family gathers around the dinner table at the end of the day. This is when the good stuff happens. Now, thanks to Linda, getting a hot meal to the table has never been easier, even on busy Tuesday nights.
