Whoop whoop!!  My first Home Chef delivery has arrived!  It was left right by my front door. I have to add that my house is about 150-200 feet off the street and I have 16 stairs up to my front door, so the delivery alone is a small feat and one that always makes me happy (since I don’t have to schlep the box myself)!!
