#4 Daughter, like many people, finds the hardest part of cooking is thinking up what to cook. So, because of that and because they offered a sweet deal, she signed up with Hello Fresh. When they expanded into my area, she send me a sweet deal, too, and I felt compelled to sign up.
They’ll send you at least three meals a week, although you can order extras. The fewest people you can order for is two. It usually comes out to about $64 dollars, which is $32 for one person, and between $10-11 dollars per serving. But, considering the portions I eat, it’s more like $7 or less. That’s including shipping.
Since I buy fewer groceries if I have food from Hello Fresh and I skip every other week of deliveries, it comes out about even.
You get three bags of ingredients and the meat (if any) outside the bag between two cold packs. You can order all meat, all veg, or a mixture. There are other filters you can use, and you can skip as many weeks as you want. You can also remove any of the menus they offer for any given week and substitute from a long list of alternatives. You also get step-by-step recipes to work from. There’s nothing to keep you from saving the recipes and making them on your own, which is what #4 and I do.
I’ll keep this one:
Black bean enchiladas. Looks just like the picture!
I’ll definitely make this on my own. Only simpler. I’ll probably use Liz of i heart vegetables’ 5-Ingredient Black Bean Enchiladas recipe. Because 5 ingredients. Also: less expensive.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: How many ingredients are too many?
