I'm cooking! I know, right?

Coconut and Macadamia Nut Crusted Tilapia
with Grilled Veggies and Forbidden Rice
 It's been a week since the meals arrived. I told you I'd let you know the service, if I was happy with the meals. Well, I'm not only happy, I'm thrilled. Not only am I thrilled, so is my husband. He doesn't much care for fish, but he was delighted with the other meals. One was chicken based, and the other beef.
I cooked the last of the three meals yesterday, and saved my husband's portion for him to eat when he got home from work. I expected him to like it, because it was beef, but I didn't expect him to ask me the price, and then, "Are you getting another package next week?"
Um, what? I told him the price and his reaction stunned me. "Cheaper than going out, and this is like going out to eat. Something different, and it's good."
From someone who hasn't cooked regularly in...well, we won't go there, I actually enjoyed the 45 minutes or so in the kitchen. And the meals were closer to 3 servings than two. Not having to go grocery shopping, or measure out the ingredients made the whole experience that much better.
When I consider the amount of time it takes to drive 30 minutes to the grocery store, stalk the aisles for the odd ingredients, come home and measure everything out, then hope what wasn't used doesn't go bad before I finish it up, it's actually cheaper.
Will I be continuing the service? Absolutely, at least for the next few weeks. I wouldn't want to do it when my schedule is crazy, because then I really only have time to microwave food, or put pasta on to cook.
The service I used was HelloFresh. You can even choose what type of meals you want to receive. 
I'll post more about the experience next week...
