Makin' Cheesy Meatball Subs with Hello Fresh

Ok so here's the deal... I love good food, but the whole cooking thing? Not really for me. Once in a blue moon I will be inspired to cook something new and exciting, but for the most part I heat up frozen Trader Joe's meals, or order takeout.  Living in New York City makes both of these options WAY too easy, so I have become lazy.

This laziness about cooking is a trait that I am trying to alter, so that's why when Hello Fresh reached out to LMP about letting us test out their service, I was excited to give it a go.

Their meals only include the freshest ingredients, with the exact amount of each ingredient that you need to make each dish.  They provide detailed instructions for each recipe so even a cooking novice like myself can make something delicious!

In addition to working at LMP, I also babysit Seri's kids, Gavin and Luke VERY frequently... we are talking 2-3 times a week. I decided to make a one of their recipes for the boys for dinner last week, and boy was it a hit! I made them the Cheesy Meatball Subs with Herby Marinara and Crispy Broccolini, and they ate every last bite.  I snuck myself a few bites as well and was blown away... I couldn't believe that I had made something so delicious, and without messing anything up!

The recipe was simple and easy to follow, with clear instructions and realistic prep time estimates.  The meal was healthy and the ingredients were super fresh. The boys literally gave me a thumbs up because they loved the subs so much! Gavin and Luke eat very well for a 6 and 3-year-old, but I'd still say that was a success.
