When we started creating $3 Dinners here on the site it was because I believe every parent should be able to feed their kiddos a healthy dinner without spending a ton of money.

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”.
