This is how you're going to reach out and get a hold of me unless you already know me, in which case... why are you here, just pick up the phone.

Just a little corner of the interwebz where I occasionally jot down a thought or two. Why do I do it? Partly to communicate in some way with you, the reader, and partly because it's some sad way of leaving a legacy of some kind I guess.

For a while now I’ve been interested in trying out one of those meal delivery services and I’m not talking about some pimply teenager delivering a pizza. No, what I’m talking about is a service that delivers fresh, local ingredients to your door along with recipes for some pretty awesome meals. My sister subscribes to one such service; HelloFresh. They periodically give out free trial invites for existing members to give out and so she sent me one of them which entitled me to a free box. This is is to say three 2-person meals and, honestly, they were pretty good meals which led to me be eating better than I normally be.

There are a couple of plans but the one I’ve stuck with is the one outlined above. It’s CAD$80 per box which is roughly CAD$14 per meal; a good deal in my books. Generally they send you a box every week by default but it’s very easy to toggle them on/off which is what I do so that I end up with one box a month. If you’re interested in getting a trial let me know and I’ll be happy to send you a code, as I got, for you to give it a shot.
