I’m a single mum, I have three children under 9, I’m running 2 business, managing a household blah, blah, blah… I could make as many excuses as I want about how crazy my life is but I’m not going to. I love my life! And I love it just the way it is.
What I will mention though is that when it comes to being efficient and present I’m usually pretty good. My to-do lists get done, I’m organised and I’m driven but there is a couple of simple day to day tasks that I avoid like the plague. The first is filling up my car with petrol. I loathe filling my car up with petrol. I’m that woman who drains every last drop out of a tank until I can hear it making that sad chugging noise and only THEN will I desperately start seeking the closest bowser the whole time fretting and praying that I make the short drive. And yes, I know it’s bad for your tank to do this but it just seems to happen over and over again.
The other thing I don’t look forward to is making a decision on what I will be cooking the family for dinner. I honestly love to cook but my love of cooking has no bearing on how hard I find it to make decisions when it comes to dinner for myself and three minors. And when I finally make that decision I’m usually missing one vital ingredient and need to pack all of the kids in the car and head to the shops to get it whatever it was that I’m missing. Not the most super fun experience to date.
Dinner Twist approached me to try one of their boxes. I loved the concept and if you’ve been following my Instagram stories you will have seen the yummy creations I make with the family over there. The recipes and all the ingredients for 3 or 4 meals to be delivered to your door on a Monday. This concept really spoke to me. As I said earlier, I love to cook! And my daughter Autumn loves to cook as well so my first thought was that this could be something we could do together. With the added bonus of not having to make a decision on the family meal and with Dinner Twist ensuring all the ingredients are there I couldn’t wait to give it a go.
The recipes have been so good!! I get a box delivered every fortnight and I’ve tried most of the different box options. I can honestly say that the meals are ultra tasty and it’s been a great way to get the kids trying new things too. They have loved most of the meals which have made it a breeze come dinner time.
