I love dining out locally, and you can always find me hopping around my favorite restaurants or trying new spots. But just as much as I love dining out, I’ve enjoyed ordering meal delivery boxes to my doorstep. There are many brands from which to choose, and there's a service out there for everyone. They all boil down to a custom selection of meals to cook at home, with the ingredients delivered to customers in a cooler box.
Why do I love this option so much? Here are my reasons:
The comfort of home sweet home! Staying in is so convenient, and you can relax in your own environment. Whether we’re setting up on the patio with a speaker or staying inside with a candlelit table, my husband and I enjoy kicking back for a private dinner in our sweatpants without making reservations, dressing up or finding parking.
The portions are just right. Meal boxes often come with just enough for two meals, leaving little to no waste.
They’re delicious. We always love the food. From burgers to stir fry and creative salads, the recipes are usually created by talented chefs.
It's adventurous. We often choose recipes with ingredients or flavors that are new to us. Most of the time, we enjoy recreating our favorites in the future, or if not, the meal is one and done, so we aren’t stuck with leftover supplies.
It’s fun to cook together. Hands-on recipes are a great way to work as a team.
It’s educational. We all get stuck making our usual recipes, and meal boxes get you out of your routine. We find ourselves loving the new ways we learn to prep vegetables or season meat.
It’s affordable. Compared to a night out, a delivery meal is a fraction of the price -- and honestly, just as fun!
