Day 114 - Create Easy.
Day 114 - It's Saturday! I'm taking some time from thinking today. I'm taking something new for a spin. I'm tying on Blue Apron a meal delivery service. Blue Apron is everything you need for a complete meal delivered to your doorstep in a box. Inside the box are all the ingredients needed to make a meal. In approximately thirty minutes after laboring away over the stove, bam!, dinner is ready. I have been shy about these meal kits because they seem like a paint by numbers for cooking but what the heck. It's still creating and I need all the help I can get.
Ordering my first week of meals for two days was easy. I hopped online and created and account. Like magic, a few weeks later, the Blue Apron box arrived at my door, Wednesday afternoon. I opened the giant box and unpacked the contents into the fridge. The first thing I noticed was all the ingredients looked lovely and fresh. The second thing I noticed was there was a lot of stuff to recycle. There is a big shipping box, cardboard liners, two huge cooler bags and all the food was pre-proportioned into little tiny containers. Yikes! Recycling nightmare but I continued to prep the meal.
Well, after our first meal of Mexican Pork Pozole and our second meal of Orange Chicken Wings, I can say I was surprised at how my family gobbled up the food. It did make dinner time more fun because I had everything I needed to make a meal. No running out to the store for forgotten ingredients. Trying Blue Apron made me realize that there are lots of options out there to make life easier.
Today's project is to try a new service that will make your life easier. Create easy today. Go sign up for a meal delivery service, have someone else mow the lawn or hire someone on Task Rabbit to take back the packages to the UPS store. Find time to get space.
Hope your Saturday is a good one and let me know how creating easy goes for you today.
