At Making Thyme Kitchen everything we do is focused on preparing the freshest, healthiest, and best tasting foods for you to enjoy at home.
We make entrées – ready to cook, and heat and eat. We prepare side dishes and fresh salads. We roast vegetables, make pasties and a selection of fresh baked sweets. All made from scratch, all ready to-go.
Our menu of entrées changes monthly, and our deli case changes with the seasons. We make our sauces, marinades and stocks from scratch because often what we leave out is what matters most — extra salt, hidden sugars, additives like msg, and hidden fats.
We use whole fresh foods from local sources whenever possible and work with lean proteins, fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains, legumes and lowfat dairy.
We look for entrées from a wide variety of ethnic origins, with a wide variety of flavors— Creole Jambalaya, Lebanese Spinach Pie, South Western Chicken with Pumpkin Chipotle Sauce, Indian Spinach and Potato Curry, and American Macaroni and Cheese—to name a few.
We pick eight entrées for each monthy menu, including; gluten free, vegetarian and vegan items, so you have plenty of options to choose from. Our fresh sides and salads change seasonally.
