Yes, I love the fact that each meal is an adventure to me and gets me to explore and try and also cook new things! In fact we did a couple of new things that we've never tried before, like zesting the lime, and adding the rice to the pork fond (the bits left in the pan after cooking it). I also thought that if the calories of a meal was too high for me I would split it and save the rest for lunch the next day. In fact when we make the recipe we did last night again I'll simply half the amount of rice, unless I'll want some for leftovers in that case I'd make it all but just plate half. It's less expensive than eating out, but more expensive than just buying the ingredients yourself. Probably because eating out they do EVERYTHING for you shopping, prep, cooking, and just serve it and you have no dishes to clean. Making it at home cuts out having it cooked for you and served with no dishes to clean!!! BUT the shipment does the shopping for you and you have exact or near exact amounts of everything you need to just simply cook the meal and eat it. So it is more convenient in that way. But the cool thing is that they have all the recipes online readily available so you can go shopping and get the ingredients and still follow their recipes as well. So you can still try new things that way too.
thanks for commenting and now you have to buy paper(loose leaf, 5 subject and single subject spiral notebooks), pencils, pens (for your child and the teacher), crayons, markers (including high lighters), white out, glue sticks and bottled glue, colored pencils, erasers, folders, binders (3 ring and each class wants a different size from 1/4 inch wide 2 inches), index cards, calculators, books your kids will be reading that change every year so your buying every year for each kid. Now they are asking for flash drives! Then once school starts you get lists from each teacher they call "extras" Any sport other then track for elementary kids you have all kinds of things you have to pay for.
