Cool! I’m jazzed. It is going to be a busy week. My friend said and I quote, “Honey, you are nuts to take this one right now!” And she is right. I am nuts. I wasn’t kidding, our lives are hectic. So there will never be a less nuts time to do this, besides, you are busy too right? Isn’t that the point? I am looking forward to the challenge.
To recap – get a delivery, feed a family of four at least two meals that are inspired by meal kit companies. Use everything. Waste nothing. Keep track of time, cost, and packaging.
