Cooking Dinner with Hello Fresh

Hello,

So now that my oldest is 4 I am trying to feed us better food. Also wanted to eat better with all the walking have been doing. Normally these meals take 45 minutes to just over an hour to make if you know how to cook maybe you can do it faster.

So each meal comes with the card and bag with all the stuff you need and then the meats. They have Veggie options.

Back if the card tells you what to do always read it first. They have hints and you want to know what you are doing as they have you do two things at once sometimes. Also, it tells you the stuff you need to have to make the meal.

Here is what I needed 2 bowls, peeler, salt, pepper, vegetable oil, a small pot, and a large pan. Typical stuff for most kitchens. You never need more food just oils and salt and pepper.

Here is the stuff from the bag we get a lot because we cook for 4. If you did it for 2 you would get half the bags. Now it is time to cook. The first step was to cut up the zucchini, I mince the ginger, quarter the limes, and cut up the green onions.

Then in the bowl, you add the stuff to make the meatballs.

Once they are ready to go it is time to get the rice in the pot and on the stove.

Once you get it to boil you lower the heat and cover it. All you need to do is watch it while you start to cook the other food.

I cooked the carrots next but forgot the photo but you put them both in the other bowl and toss in some sesame oil.

Now it is time to cook the meatballs by this time the rice was about half done.

I had to brown them on all 4 sides. That was the hardest part of moving them all around one at a time. Once done you add the Teriyaki sauce thing you put on a lid and let it simmer in that.

Right about the time I put the lid on the rice was done the cooking. You mix in some lime juice to your liking.

Once the meatballs at done cooking it is time to plate the food for the family.

This next one was for the kids.

Overall the meal was a hit. This isn’t really a sale add for hello fresh there are a lot of different ones that do this. Just feel good when I cook a real meal.

If you happen to want to try Hello Fresh they do let us invite people for a free week of 3 meals but I would need your email so don’t expect anyone to want it but let me know.

I've never used services like these but it's great to finally see someone using them and having success.
Personally I find them a little expensive, but then again you're paying for delivery fees and so on.
Thank you for posting this.

I know a few that use Hello Fresh and think it's great, My wife has dietary restrictions and most of the meals from there have things she can't have so we hagent tried it yet ourselves

oh I understand that bummer. I am lucky I seem to be okay eating anything but also need to eat better.

Until a few years back I used to just eat whatever I felt like, now I am trying to eat healthier, I guess thats a sign of not getting any younger lOL

How cool is that we have that too ! I stopped my subscription cause of the summer but sure gonna start gain

Ya we take breaks too. Sometimes we try the others this one tends to be my favorite. It is a bit fancy but not crazy fancy. Blue Apron was crazy when I tried that one I would have tons of bowls all over the place

sounds like a great idea - we have that in Belgium too - never tried it though :)

Ya it cost a bit more here than if you shopped on your own but cheaper than eating out. Also you get more Premium ingredients. Like I could make similar meals on my own but I wouldn’t get all the extra oils and spices
