DINNER MADE EASY.
I’m sure we are all fully aware by now that we are living with my in-laws until our home is done in May right? (hello, you have said it a million times) Well, with that we tend to bounce back and forth between my in-laws and my parents for dinner time. We have a little kitchen we use in the basement, but I mean, if my mom is offering to cook us dinner then it would be rude to not take her up on that offer right? When we are on our own for dinner I constantly struggle. I don’t want to buy fresh foods to cook with because they are going to go bad in the fridge before we have to make our own dinner again (heaven forbid I make dinner ha, right?). I still want to feed my family nutritious meals with fresh fruits and veggies and that are filling when I cook dinner though. The struggle is real. Insert Hello Fresh box!
These boxes are seriously life changing. Let’s talk about how it works. You get on their website and decide if you need meals for 2 people or 4, then you pick 3 meals for the week to come in a glorious ice packed box delivered straight to your door step. No more grocery shopping for all the random ingredients, planning out dinners, etc. it is all done for you. When the box comes to your doorstep, literally everything but the pots and pans are included. They are packaged in individual boxes by meal like shown below. You open up which box you would like for dinner that night and it’s like magic, everything you need to cook it is ready in the box! Obsessed would be an understatement. Next, cook it up according to the directions. All 3 of the meals that I chose were super easy to make and cook up, which was absolutely amazing.
There is no stress to planning what’s for dinner and finding all the ingredients. With the stress gone, it was so fun to make dinner and have King be a part. He loved stirring in the bowl, adding the ingredients in, and watching things bake in the oven. We sat down as a family when our meal was finished and enjoyed it with no stress! It seriously is heaven sent. I have already ordered my next box because this mama is tired of throwing away excess fresh foods out of her fridge that we don’t get to fast enough. I also love that all the meals are things that I can re-create on my own if I want to and they are things that King loved to eat. Could it get any more perfect?!
Especially with all the holidays and the after math of the holidays it was amazing to have some help in my meals. I have learned there is no shame in asking for help, or when in doubt hire it out! Babe, just bit the bullet and order your Hello Fresh box already mmkay!?
