As we enter our seventh week of lockdown, I'm sure like me you're sick of coming up with ideas of what to cook. So here I am to getting rid of that problem for you.
I propose two solutions, you can either get a DIY meal box delivered, which takes all the difficulty out of cooking for you OR you can opt for a delivery of some delicious chef-prepared grub mean you barely have to get off the sofa to eat.

Northern Soul GIY
Kicking off with a big one. CHEESE. Nuff said really init. This pack includes everything you need for Cheese Toasties and slap-up portion of Mac & Cheese. Personally, I'd recommend putting the mac and cheese ON the toastie. Done. Completed it. Signing off.

The team over at ShinDigger guarantee beer on your doorstep within 3 hours of ordering - so we tested it out.

If, like me, you’ve taken to trying to brush up your baking skills and it’s gone horrifically wrong, just stop. It’s not for everyone, leave it to the pros. Luckily, Gooey Co is back on sale which means Instagram and dribble worthy doughnuts and cookies galore. Tuck in kids.

They’ve even got chocolate chip cookie trays available too. Wipe the dribble from your mouth you dutty pig.
The Koffee Pot
I can’t decide between shouting about the Burger Kits or the Full English Breakfast kits so I’m going to do both and suggest you spend the full day ‘at’ Koffee Pot. After all, it is one of the best places for an all-day boozer and that is not something that needs to be missed because of lockdown. Not if Koffee Pot has anything to do with it.
