Detroit Mom partnered with the amazing people at Olga's Kitchen to bring you this post. All stories and opinions are our own.

This time of year is incredibly busy for most families. Your family calendar is most likely overflowing with pick ups, drop offs, games, rehearsals, and that’s just regular stuff! Throw in holiday parties, decking the halls, seeing friends and family, and about twenty million other small tasks and you’re certain to forget something. Luckily we as moms have a few tricks up our sleeves, and that includes grab-and-go dinners.

We’re here to help alleviate some of the stress of the holiday season and have found the absolute best places to pick up a quick and easy dinner for your family.

Grab-and-Go Dinners In + Around Detroit

Olga’s Kitchen

Olga’s Kitchen is making this holiday season so much simpler by offering their Take & Bake Kits! They are super easy for a quick weeknight meal. With the food already prepped, it really allows us to be present and enjoy the company of our family. Take & Bake Kits serve between four and ten people, so families of just about every size can enjoy a delicious dinner without the hassle.

The beauty of the Take & Bake Kits is that it’s everything you love about Olga’s but you get to make it right at home. Take & Bake Kits are now available to make Olga’s Snackers, The Original Olga, and Olga’s Spinach & Cheese Pies. The best part is that everything tastes just the same as dining in or ordering carry out, but with the added convenience of being in your own home. You can pick up Take & Bake Kits at an Olga’s near you or order online by clicking here.

Livonia Italian Bakery and Cafe

If your family likes Italian food, you have to try Livonia Italian Bakery and Cafe. They make family-style dinners in-house every day, all you have to do is take it home and bake it. We love their lasagnas and pizzas, especially when serving a crew of hungry kids. They also offer a selection of fresh salads, other Italian classics, and desserts.

Simply Good Kitchen

Simply Good Kitchen in Birmingham offers a rotating weekly menu of meals to go. Since each meal is made to order, they are able to accommodate any dietary or food restrictions you or your family members may have. All you have to do is pick it up and then heat it when you get home. Easy peasy!

Licavoli’s Market

If you’re on the east side, you have to try Licavoli’s Market in Grosse Pointe Woods. They have an awesome selection of Italian classics from pizza to calzones ready to go in their store. If you can’t make it out to their market, you can have it delivered by Door Dash!

Ike’s Express

Ike’s Express in Shelby Township has some of the best Mediterranean food in the Metro Detroit Area. They make it easy for families with their combination trays which are sure to please everyone in your household. You get three cold items and three hot items plus french fries or vegetables. Now that’s a complete meal!

Located in Ferndale, Clean Plates is committed to making your life easier. Not only do they offer meal kits or meal plans, but they will also deliver everything right to your front door! Clean Plates has a huge selection of meals each day and is able to accommodate any dietary or food restrictions you may have.

Shimmy Shack

For the best vegan food to go, head over to Shimmy Shack in Plymouth. While you can order carry out from their regular menu, you can also pick up one of their incredible vegan casseroles and make it a whole meal!

Which one will you try out?

We absolutely love when someone else does the cooking for us, especially when it’s a homemade meal. Picking up something delicious for your family to have at the end of a busy day is the perfect way to take some of the stress out of this busy time of year.
