This Week's Menu Plan and New Recipes

October 11th, 2015 at 05:25 pm

This week the soccer coach will come to stay with us again. He comes on Tuesday...

Sunday - neighborhood potluck in J's giant garage - we are bringing rosemary roast potatoes

Monday - grilled cheese and tomato soup

Tuesday - lasagna with courgettes

Wednesday - chipotle chicken stew

Thursday - potatoes dauphinoise with a salad

Friday - fish with homemade aioli and broccoli and rice

Saturday - no idea!!

So I have a lot of wealthy friends (you'd think it'd rub off!) and they have been raving about Hello Fresh. It's a box that gets delivered to your house with the exact amount of ingredients for the meals you order. You then cook it yourself. Of course, it is not a frugal option for dinner. I think it's $10 per person. Our dinners average $5 for all of us.

But, I was curious about what the meals were (new ideas?), so I went to the Hello Fresh website to check it out. It turns out they have recipes online for their past meals. Since they have both regular boxes and veggie boxes, there are a lot of vegetarian recipes.

I downloaded a couple that I want to try:
- brussels sprouts crumble (with mushrooms and parmesan, served over rice)
- one pot mexican quinoa (with corn, avocado and feta)

Those aren't really expensive dinners, and they tell you exactly how much your need of everything for 2 or 4 people.

Anyway, it seems like a good source for new (and not that difficult) recipes.

    Mmm. Brussels sprouts crumble sounds delicious. You'll have to let us know how they turn out!

    Saturday, Mexican style Quinoa with corn and avocado sounds like a fun casserole.

    I have looked up their site as well. Like you, I can fix things more reasonably, but I guess if the person ordering were someone who decided to cook at home using their items and recipes, it would be cheaper than eating out at a sit down restaurant.

    I'll take a look. Currently we're drowning in squash, so I've been looking at different squash recipes. Let us know about the Brussel Sprout crumble. My DH would love it!
