You didn't plan ahead, nor did you
shop for groceries. Yeah, too busy over the weekend to think about grocery
shopping. Now you're home from work to find that you only have some milk, a
few beers, a loaf of of bread, a few eggs and some cheese in the
refrigerator. In the cabinets, a can of tomatoes, ketchup, mustard and a can
of black olives.
Your cooking skills and knowledge are pretty basic,
you know how to prepare dishes like meatballs, fried chicken and chili, but
grilling salmon with a citrus beurre blanc or steak Diane aren't even on the
list. Neither are items such as coleslaw and potato salad, after all you can
buy them at a deli counter if you think of it. Spaghetti with Prego is a
standard run of the mill easy one pot one bowl meal, with the meatballs that
you bought in the freezer section. Sandwiches are okay as long as it's
grilled cheese or turkey.

I hate doing dishes and that's why delivery is great! It's so easy, I'll order
extra and have leftovers for tomorrow night. Does this sound familiar? At
$25 plus tip per delivery it really adds up! You can save a lot of money and
eat better with less food additives, fat and sodium when you know how to
cook---ah come-on don't worry about the dishes---use paper plates if you
You know that you can do better, right?
