You might have heard of "Cook Boxes". You have a weekly menu from which you can pick the meals you want, and the ingredients along with detailed recipes are then delivered to your home.

I love cooking, I really do, and in contrary to baking I usually succeed and the result is great.

But coming up with meal ideas day after day after day .... buying all that food ... measuring how much you need ... gosh it's exhausting, it really is.

As a result, I didn't cook as much as I wanted to in the past, and we ate way too much takeout or frozen pizza (...after putting it in the oven of course).

After moving to Ireland, I decided I wanted to try something else and ended up with [Dropchef](https://dropchef.com/), one provider of the Cook boxes I mentioned earlier.

I liked this specific one because they use seasonal, Irish ingredients when possible, and have deals with Irish farmers for meat.

After three weeks of cooking these meals, I must say ... I'm super happy.

I'm cooking things I would never have thought of before, and they're always super delicious. I feel like I'm finally eating healthy, and that without the stress of having to decide what I want.

Every Monday, I'm excitedly looking forward to going to the Dropchef website and picking out my menu for the next week.

The price per meal is (for my fiancΓ© and me) about 7€ per meal, per person. It's not super cheap, but it's also not _that_ expensive. It's definitely less than we paid for the junk we ate before.

Anyway, let me show you some of the meals we had so far!

Would also be a good thing here. The most things can just be bought in 1kg+ packages. I would need 2 weeks to eat this 1 kg of carrots. Or a lettuce head, you can't eat it in two days. 
For meat I'm fine, the only place where I buy it is my local butcher. Fortunately, some supermarkets have also a small selection of food that can be bought one at a time.

Thank for the hint, I just looked at their website :-) 
I always thought they just deliver in a certain radius or in certain cities. I saw a "comparision" of some of those companies on TV some time ago where they only delivered in bigger cities.
