My name is Claire and despite my constantly going on about how I love making things from scratch and cooking all the time, sometimes I just can’t be bothered.
It was Friday afternoon at the end of my first week back after 2 weeks holidays. I had planned on making spinach and ricotta cannelloni from scratch for the three of us for dinner but I was exhausted (Mum had spoiled me way too much in our two weeks at the beach).
Ollie’s dinner changed to gnocchi from the freezer when I had the genius realisation that I still had to try out Eat Now’s food delivery service.
I think my sigh of relief at not even having to defrost dinner could have been heard across the street.
I jumped on the Eat Now website, typed in my postcode and up came a huge range of restaurants to choose from and even some speciality grocery stores (hello Aldi delivery!) that all deliver in my area.
The real excitement came when I saw I could have Mexican delivered to my door. It was about 4pm and I placed my order. Super simple just click on the items, select a time (on the hour or half hour), pay (you can even use Paypal so you don’t have to get up and find your wallet) and maybe get out some plates if you want to make it fancy.
I accidentally ordered burritos instead of enchiladas (can I blame baby brain?) but a quick call to the store and it was all fixed up. They were so nice about it too.
At 7.30 there was a knock on the door and a very lovely man delivered our piping hot Mexican feast. It was so good. I know I usually cook Mexican from scratch but being able to have delicious shredded meat in warm tortillas without having to do more than click a few buttons really was a great treat.
If Mexican’s not your style I’m sure there will still be something to your liking. In my area I could select from Chinese, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Pizza and heaps more and it was so very simple to order.
