What's For Dinner?

The dreaded question!
Hubby and I struggle each week
 to think of something new
and exciting to plan for dinner
and then we end up
cooking the same old meals

Have you heard of www.blueapron.com

A friend told us about this company

He said they send you three meals a week with all the pre-measured ingredients, everything you need with detailed instructions on how to prepare your meals 

He and his wife raved about how good it was.....


We decided to try it!


It takes all the guess work out of planning
plus it's healthy, low calorie  
and you are trying new things

Here's a sample of some of our latest meals
Jamaican Jerk Chicken & Maduros
with stewed collard greens
Roast Pork & Braised Endive
with Green Apple & Endive Salad
Salmon Pastrami on Rye
with Red Cabbage & Green Apple Slaw
Chicken Khao Soi Soup
with Yellow Curry and Crispy Wonton Noodles

Pork Meatballs in Butter Lettuce Cups
with soy dipping sauce and sticky rice


And yes, it takes an hour or so
to prepare these meals
but hubby and I love to cook together
so we pour a glass of wine
put on some music
get in the kitchen

and just in case you think we might
be going overboard on the low calorie/healthy
food kick.......

Here's what I prepared for dessert this weekend

English Trifle

I'm not even going to guess the calories
in this baby, but whatever,
it's worth every bite!!

Here's the recipe

Pound cake
Preserves, microwave to improve consistency
Large box of pudding
Berries, any kind
Whipping Cream

Place half of the pound cake cut into 3/4" strips
Drizzle preserves over cake
Spread half the pudding
Sprinkle berries over pudding
cover with whipped cream
Repeat for second layer
