Subscription meals are very popular but I had never tried them.
In September, I loosely followed a plan called “ShelfTember” and my goal was to use up ingredients that we’ve had for awhile. I used up lots of oddball ingredients and freezer leftovers. I also did very little grocery shop in September.
Near the end of September, I saw a coupon code to get your first Hello Fresh shipment at a big discount. So, I thought we’d try it.
Above is my 2 year old grandson sitting beside our delivery- it came by USPS.
Near the top of the shopping crate is where these 3 bags were. They contain the ingredients needed for each recipe.
The shipping box was very insulated with several ice packs.
The fresh meat was in the bottom.
All the cold ingredients were very cold when delivered and they stayed fresh in our fridge until I cooked them.
Hello Fresh sends very easy to follow recipe cards and nutritional information.
Inside the brown paper bags, are the exact ingredients needed for a recipe.
(At home, you will need to have basic cooking tools with salt, pepper and cooking oil)
Below is the ingredients is for Sesame Beef Tacos.
This plat contains 2 of the sesame beef tacos and we added Homemade refried beans from our freezer.
This was our favorite of the 3 meals ( but we truly enjoyed all of them)
We’d never cooked cabbage with our taco meat or had pickled vegetables on tacos. The Korean Red pepper flakes were a new spice to us, it is hot but mostly just spicy and delicious,
This is our Sizzling Hoisin shrimp.
My husband said “fabulous, absolutely fabulous” will he was eating,
Our last meal was Creamy Dill Chicken, the sauce was so good!
We won’t be regular Hello Fresh customers but we did enjoy these 3 meals.
I may order again we have a staycation or if we take a vacation and stay in a condo.
The food is restaurant quality, the meals are easy to prepare.
I do plan on sending a gift certificate as a wedding gift for a couple of med school students that getting married this fall.
This week, I baked 2 batches of sandwich buns and 2 loaves of pecan raisin bread.
I also made some spreadable butter for the first time.
I beat together 1/2 pound softened butter with 1/2 cooking oil in the mixer and then stored it in little Pyrex containers.
So far, it’s great. It is easy to spread on our morning toast.
We cut what it probably our last watermelon of 2017.
It was a really good one! ,
Have a wonderful weekend everyone ❤️
