While John and I get most of the credit for keeping the chaos of becoming parents to a dull roar for the past ten months, and M gets her fair share for being a generally agreeable baby, there's a shout-out coming in the form of this post that's long overdue.
Tasty Bite, we love you.
Countless--and by countless, I really do mean countless--pizzas have not been ordered thanks to your microwavable awesomeness.
For those who don't know, Tasty Bite is boxed Indian food. Since visiting their website for this post, I can now happily tell you that they make Thai food, too, though I can't vouch for it personally not having tried it. Offering a plethora of options, Tasty Bite requires little more than the making of some rice or, if you're like us and you only remember that you need dinner once you're starving, couscous (which takes, what, 3 minutes?). Cut open the pouches of your personal Indian favorites, pour contents into a microwave safe bowl, zap and serve. Hot, healthy, and easy on both the prep and clean-up sides of the dinnertime equation...what more could new parents want?
I'm not saying Tasty Bite is as good as home-cooked Indian. What I'm saying, though, is that it's a darn good cheap alternative. What I'm saying is that you should probably keep a few boxes in your pantry for the next night the prospect of cooking dinner makes you want to fall over. Oh! And the leftovers are totally delicious, too.
