We love a good home-cooked meal, but sometimes we just don’t have the energy to put effort in after a long day. You too? WeAreTeachers invited teacher Marine Freibrun to try a week of meals from our friends at Home Chef, who have an exclusive discount just for teachers—50% off your first box and 10% off every box that follows. Marine has been in education for more than 12 years and has two young sons at home, so juggling is something she’s used to. Here’s what she had to say.
If you’re like me, you’re exhausted when you get home after a long day of teaching. One of the last things I want to do is figure out what my family and I are having for dinner. That’s why I was so excited to try Home Chef’s meal kits. You can try them too!
Home Chef is super convenient! Their standard meal kits take the guesswork out of cooking and help to provide you and your family with amazing chef-inspired food.
Have dinner on the table in 30-45 minutes
Home Chef’s classic meal kits typically take about 30 minutes to make. My choice was the White Wine Chicken Scallopini, which was on the table in 45. I have to say, by the sound of the name, I was a bit intimidated, but the directions and ready-to-go ingredient packs were just what I needed to take the stress out of cooking.
I easily prepped the vegetables and seasoned the chicken to perfection. And the savory white wine sauce was divine.
The best part? Hearing my sons tell me that our dinner smelled so good as I was cooking. They were both chomping at the bit to try it, and they honestly couldn’t believe that I had made such a yummy entrée. They ate everything, including their vegetables.
If you’re looking for another easy and quick dinner, you can also try Home Chef’s oven-ready meals. Home Chef will send you your food in an oven-safe tin, and you’ll simply pop the ingredients into the tray and into the oven. These meals are no prep, no mess, and their main competitors don’t offer anything that comes close!
Prep easy lunches with the 15-minute meal kit
Beyond the standard meal kits, Home Chef also offers 15-minute meals. It’s great news for me, because meal planning lunches is always an afterthought.
I was able to cook up a 15-minute lettuce wrap meal on a Sunday afternoon, even during a busy day of laundry, grocery shopping, and getting ready for the workweek. I used the leftovers for my lunches during the week. It was a win-win!
Another great option for teacher lunches is Home Chef’s microwave meals. All of their Fast and Fresh meals can be made in the microwave in about 5 minutes and require no prep.
Teachers can get 50% off their first box
In appreciation of teachers, Home Chef is offering an incredible promotion for teachers registered with ID.me. You will get 50% off your first order and 10% off every order after that. What’s so nice about this offer is that it is exclusive to teachers!
This includes Home Chef’s oven-ready and microwave options, as well as their meal kits that you can make together with your family.
