We’ve eaten a few good meals since my last post.  One night we had a spinach salad with fresh organic strawberries, toasted pecans, pickled beets and crumbled goats cheese thrown together by yours truly along with some fat-free (NOT) broccoli cheese soup.  Wednesday night we went out to The Hub 30A for movie night on the big screen. This is a super fun place. Mike and I had quesadillas.  Really good! 20543606_1925294067739026_1165367815220634791_o We had Green Chef meals on Thursday and Friday.  Michael cooked one on Thursday and I forgot to take a picture.  Sorry, honey.  I cooked another last night.  Both were surprisingly scrumptious.  There’s still a fair amount of chopping and prepping to be done with these meals but, it takes away the need for planning and shopping.

Planning meals is my husband’s torment.  Grocery shopping is mine, so there are some advantages for both of us.  Biggest bonus?  Mike enjoys cooking the delivery meals so, any time he gets off early or I can put off  “hangry” kids with a snack, I’m thrilled to pass the buck!   I love to save the little containers that the pre-made sauces and marinades are shipped in.  I use them for temporarily examining caught bugs,  rock and shell collections and even for digging in the sand at the beach.
