Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps


Having learned from out last crock pot meals, we tweaked this recipe a little bit as we went. These were delicious, but a little messy. Entirely worth it, though.

Stuffed Peppers


These ones were a little more involved, but not that much, and mostly on the prep side. As with a lot of these crock pot meals, it could've done with a bit more seasoning, but only very slightly. One of the better ones so far.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs


Forgot to document yesterday's meal, but it came out tasting a lot better than it looked. This one, however, is a winner on all fronts.

Italian Wedding Soup


The meatballs were a little large, and I'm not entirely convinced this soup is even supposed to have carrots in it, but it turned out really well.

Chicken Fajitas


The tortillas we had were a little oversized for this and they were a little under-seasoned, but we'll make some adjustments for next time. We ended up making them into burritos instead.

Crock Pot Ham and Potato Soup


Taking a step back from the meal kits for a while for reasons discussed in another thread. If they keep coming out like this, we may not go back.

Went to the pharmacy and noticed that all the baby formula is under lock and key. I don't have children, but this is a very sad commentary on the state of modern capitalism.

Beef Meatballs and Fresh Veggie Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Sauce


One of the advantages of no longer being allergic to nuts is that I no longer need to fear pesto. I had no idea what I was missing.

BBQ-Glazed Chicken Thighs with Creamy Slaw and Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds


The original recipe called for wedges, but we do what we want.

Side note: working with sweet potatoes is a pain in the ass.

Creamy Black Bean Curry with Steamed Rice


Another vegetarian dish. Considering @Katy Lamothe's "no plain rice" rule, we've had a lot of meals with plain rice. No regrets.

Tomato and Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Goat Cheese and Tomato Soup


A fancy take on a time-honoured classic. It was delicious, but a lot of work for grilled cheese and tomato soup.

Spanako-Pizzas with Puff Pastry and Tomato-Cucumber Salad


Another one that I loved and @Katy Lamothe hated.

Breaded Chicken Tenders with Roasted Potatoes and Smoky Garlic Aioli


Another recipe that required the use of the oven that we haven't yet bothered to have fixed. They turned out quite nicely on the stove top.

Carnitas-Style Pork Tacos with Chili Crema


We made a lunch of these because we're having to play catch-up again. Given the portion size, it was a good call. We got the recipe slightly wrong, but they came out well anyways.

Garlicky Spaghetti and Beef Meatballs with Homemade Sugo Sauce


I don't know what sugo sauce is, but it's delicious.

BBQ-Spiced Chicken Dinner with Warm and Tangy Potato Salad


Best potato salad I've ever had. We decided to make the chicken into a chicken sandwich. It was a good call.

Linguine in a Blush Sauce with Pan-Seared Tomatoes


Another vegetatian dish. I know the last recipe was linguine too, but this was sufficienly different to keep it interesting anyways.

Day 61


In a promising turn of events, I noticed the beginnings of our first pea pod today while watering the plants.

Linguine Beef Ragu with Parmesan Cheese


Three meal kits in one day because we've been lazy about cooking them and needed to catch up. I'm not normally excited about spaghetti-type dishes, but this was next level.

New England-Style Fish Chowder


We've made this one before, but thought it was worth another go. Every bit as delicious as I remember.

Cheesy Bacon and Mushroom Flatbread Pizzas with Creamy Garlic Aioli


We actually followed the recipe on this one pretty closely, except that we were supposed to drizzle this with honey. We didn't do that, but it still turned out amazing.

Day 59


The heat's really been taking a toll. Lost one of the pepper plants, and the peas aren't looking good. I'm trying to step up the watering to compensate, but we'll see how that goes.

On the plus side, the remaining two pepper plants seem to be thriving.

Content warning: vent about transphobia


Harissa-Spiced Chickpea Salad with Creamy Honey-Mustard Dressing


We made a fatal mistake, we forgot to pick the meals in this most recent meal kit batch until after the deadline so they chose for us. This is the meal that @Katy Lamothe was the most apprehensive of. We omitted the potatoes, because putting potatoes in a non potato salad was just a bridge too far.

Fresh Mozzarella Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto


This was a redo. It turned out so well last time that we decided to have it again. This time we remembered to keep back some pasta water for the sauce. The end result was creamier.

Day 43


Been really keeping an eye on the garden. It seems to be recovering.
