First, the stork delivered a bundle of joy.
Then House of Siam dropped off pad Thai, The Upper Crust some pizza, and B.good a burger dinner.
If you’ve sworn off labor since baby’s arrival, give chef Alexandra Ricciuti’s Green Delicious Cooking Company a try. The new parent package is designed for moms and dads with little time (and even less energy) and includes three family meals cooked from scratch with fresh, local ingredients.
Peruse the online menu (Moroccan vegetable stew, chicken saltimbocca, flank steak), pick a delivery date, and dinner is served. Each dish is packaged in clearly marked containers with instructions for heating, so even the most sleep deprived can prepare with no problem.
All in short order.
