Finally, a Post!

I have not posted in a while, mainly because things have been busy and I haven’t made anything “blog worthy”.

Recently I caved in and tried Plated, not something I would usually do, but the “only pay for shipping” was too good of a deal to pass up. I ordered 2 meals, Mushroom Lettuce Cups  and Pan Fried Redfish . It came neatly packaged (Saturday delivery) with step by step instructions. All of the ingredients were packaged and measured out, just needing salt, pepper and oil.

Sunday night I decided to cook the red fish with green beans and potatoes. Simple instructions that included a white wine caper sauce. It was very good, not to complicated (even if you don’t consider yourself a great “cook).

Last night, I made the Mushroom Lettuce Cups. This recipes was marked a little more difficult, which I agree if you are not someone who cooks often, but I felt it was really  time consuming and the fava beans made the pancake dough wet and sticky. I ended up using extra flour to compensate. I also felt the tofu needed to be pressed (I am used to Twin Oaks, which does not require pressing and is MUCH firmer). This meal was not as big of a hit as the first meal.

Plated is a great idea, it gets you in the kitchen and has great selection of recipes. I am not sure I would use it weekly, but I really like the idea.

If you are interested in trying it out there are always promo’s on Facebook or you can use my link to receive a special, https://www.plated.com/invites/fc5648.
