We have tried so many new recipes recently! Pictured above is some beef stew in our new Dutch oven. I asked for that bad boy for Christmas and Kevin delivered. We are so happy with it!
Here are the new recipes we’ve tried in the past few weeks:
Whole30 approved Apple Cider Vinegar pork chops – these were really tasty. Very tender and easy to prepare.
Whole30 approved Taco and “Rice” Stuffed Acorn Squash – this was really delicious. I’m always looking for ways to use ground beef, and this was a good one. I love squash – it was a really hearty meal altogether. We did cheat and used a packet of taco seasoning rather than making our own. So it wasn’t Whole30 compliant, but delicious and easy.
Chicken and Sweet Potato BBQ packets – these were really quick and the clean up was a cinch! Packet meals are always a good idea.
Spicy Tomato and Shrimp Garlic sauce with Spaghetti Squash – this was delicious. Spaghetti squash is always fun to make too. I pierce the squash many times and bake it, then cut when it’s soft rather than splitting before baking. Taking a knife to an uncooked squash would pretty much guarantee that I lose a digit.
Beef Stew in Dutch oven – this stew was such a perfect winter meal. We will definitely be making it again in February.
Crock Pot Garlic Chicken with Onions – easy and delicious. I love anything with garlic, of course, and this definitely met that criteria!
Dutch oven Grecian Chicken – whole chicken in a Dutch oven. It was moist and delicious and really easy to prepare. I’d definitely make it again. And maybe take the lid off the Dutch oven and broil it for a few minutes at the end so the skin gets crispy.
I also used a discount code and ordered three Hello Fresh meals last week. We made:
Oven-Roasted Chicken with Winter Vegetables, Basmati Rice, and Lemon-Thyme Pan Sauce (really delicious – included parsnips with the veggies and I’ve never cooked parsnips before, so that was fun!)
Quick-Marinated Steak with Broiled Balsamic Vegetables (so tasty – I loved the steak marinade, which included orange juice and orange zest)
Pork and Apple Burger with Rosemary Potatoes and Mixed Green Salad (yum! Pork and apple is a great combination).
The packaging is fantastic and it was fun to try these new recipes. Kevin did basically ALL of the prep and the cooking for all three meals, and I think he was happy with the recipe instructions.
If you are interested in trying Hello Fresh, feel free to use my discount code, which I think will get you $40 off your first box. That makes it something like $29 for three meals delivered right to your door – not too shabby! The code is WJ6YLR.
