The Magic of Meez Meals

So a mom walks into the kitchen (stop me if you’ve heard this one). She looks in the fridge. Nothing. She goes to the pantry. Even less. She opens the drawer, pulls the Thai takeout menu, and voila, dinner is served.

In a nut shell, this has become the story of my life. You wonder why I don’t update this blog all the time? Oh, it’s because if money grows on trees, then so do hours in the day, and I’m just rolling in all the time in the world. Okay, I don’t mean to sound bitter, I’m just tired. But I digress.

Back to our lack-of homemade dinners. I used to take joy, even pride, in the delicious concoctions I’d come up with for weeknight meals. That was before I had a feisty three-year-old and a five-month-old (oh, and a demanding career, but that’s easy in comparison!). These days, I am just trying to get something, anything, on a plate and call it dinner.

And then, as if the universe waved a magic wand, I have come to discover Meez Meals. And it feels like life may never be the same. Or at lease dinner.

Let me explain. I’ve tried these pack’em and freeze’em and thaw’em meals before. And they were….meh. Fine. But then my friend and colleague told me about Meez Meals. They deliver the meals fresh to your house. The meals are all vegetarian and they are in a word: amazing. Delicious, fresh, healthy, and EASY. What you end up getting is a beautiful mise en place with instructions on how to simply cook the meal and usually in less time it would take for my Thai delivery, an honest to goodness homemade meal is on the table. Also, the prices are really reasonable. And there are always leftovers.

I’m one of these people who when I love something, I can’t stop talking about it, and that’s definitely the case for Meez Meals. I mean, it’s brought me out of hibernation for this blog. Definitely check them out. They’re based in Chicago, but offer delivery throughout the burbs. Enjoy and let me know what you think of them!
