When I was pregnant with my twins, I thought I was pretty well prepared. The nursery was set up, the house had been childproofed, and we had every cream/medication for every possible baby ailment I could think of. You know what I didn’t think about? Me. As a new first time mom, I was so wrapped up in making sure the babies had EVERYTHING that I didn’t even stop to think about what I might need.
Thankfully I had some amazing super thoughtful friends at work that got together and sent me prepared meals. This was clearly not their first rodeo in new mom-hood. Once I brought the girls home from the hospital, I quickly realized that without these thoughtful friends my husband and I would have totally starved.
My friends found this company online called sendameal.com , and I swear it may as well be called the “Gift From God.” Each person picked a nice prepared meal and pitched in money for us to get two weeks of prepared meals. This was a HUGE benefit to my entire family, bec
ause we were really struggling with new twin parent life, and we would have never figured out where to get the extra time or energy to feed ourselves. In fact, I don’t even know where we would have found time to go to the grocery store to buy anything.
Sendameal is pretty awesome, because they drop off meals that are really nicely put together, and shipped super carefully in a special cooler with dry ice. We put them all in the freezer, and each night we pulled out a different meal and popped it in the oven or microwave and it was amazing.
These are not just like microwave dinners- these are real gourmet meals. My husbands favorite dish was their Italian chicken dinner which also came with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. My favorite dish was the Salmon which was made to perfection with olive oil, garlic, paprika, onion, pepper and an awesome natural smoke flavor.
One of the unique things about Sendameal.com is that they send PREPARED meals. I repeat “PREPARED” meals. This is important to note because most companies that allow you to send meals are actually sending ingredients to meals that someone has to put together. I would NEVER have time for that. Sendameal.com is already prepared meals, so its just a 1 or 2 step process from deciding what you want to eat to having a nice hot meal.
I just wanted to share this as a helpful tool to those of you that are expecting- you may consider adding sendameal as an option for a shower gift or even just mention it to your friends casually. Your friends will be tempted to buy more clothes then you know what to do with, so let them know you have it covered and direct them to sendameal.
