I hope for your sake you’re reading this from somewhere other than the Northeast. It is FREEZING. I had snot icicles hanging from my nose on the brief, one-block walk from the T to the studio…that’s how cold it is. (I know, I know, I’m sexy and you want to date me.) Anyway…
As I mentioned in a previous post, I got the chance to try out Just Add Cooking, a Boston-based meal delivery service, and I loved it. So start, the logistics:
You can pick between a four-person box or a two-person box, and can opt to have three to five meals delivered each week. Two-person boxes start at $79/week and four-person boxes at $109/week. The Wednesday of the preceding week, you log into your account and can pick from a variety of meal options (the options change each week). For mine, I picked Oyster Mushroom Tacos (recipe below!), Scallops in Peppery Butter and Beef White Beans and Leeks (I don’t eat red meat, but I let my boyfriend pick out one—aren’t I nice??). That Sunday night, Just Add Cooking delivers a box to your home with all the ingredients you’ll need to put together your three chosen meals, sourcing them locally. Also in your package are detailed, easy-to-follow recipes for each.
My boyfriend and I loved all three of the recipes—seriously, couldn’t even pick a favorite because they were all so tasty. When I first opened the box, I was nervous it wouldn’t be enough food, but the serving sizes were perfect to satisfy two people. And it was so nice to not worry about grocery shopping for dinner those few days!
To give you a little taste, I wanted to share one of the recipes with you so you can recreate it at home. I have to admit, I thought these were mushroom tacos with oysters in them, but turns out there’s a type of shroom called the oyster mushroom. Doh.
Big thanks to Just Add Cooking for the free trial!
