I've been slacking on cooking lately.

Personal life has taken over and I have resorted to eating out more, snacks on-the-go, and relying on friends to feed me.

On a day I was particularly missing a home-cooked meal (but not so much so that I felt like grocery shopping, obviously) I saw a special deal for one of those meal-delivery services called Hello Fresh.

I had heard about meal-delivery services before but thought they probably weren't that great or worth the money, but I am happy to report that I was wrong.

They send you all the ingredients needed and the recipes to follow, and it's a great way to have a home cooked meal while reducing the need for a grocery store trip or meal-planning time.

You still have to do the cooking and the dishes though, but it's not a perfect world. (Note: This post is not sponsored by Hello Fresh, but if you keep reading there will be a special discount link for you down by the recipe!)

One of the recipes I tried was this Veggie Lo Mein. I loved how easy it was to make and all the fresh veggies made it so much better than take-out.

My only complaint was the way the original recipe was worded, so I've tried to make it a little more straight-forward for you here! I think it took me longer to read their recipe than it did to actually cook the meal.
