Hello Fresh Box 1-- YUM!

SOOOO I have been posting about Hello Fresh and was so super excited to get my first box last Thursday... and let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed.

It arrived to my house in a box with ice packs and this cool little insulator.
 The ingredients for each meal were in their own bag and the meat was separate from everything else.
I couldn't wait to make one of the meals! Night one was Roasted Vegetable Quesadillas with smoky chipotle mayo and guacamole. I think it was my favorite of the week. I only ate half of the recommended serving because it was so filling so it fed Bryan and I two meals. The funny thing is that I actually usually have all of the ingredients for this already at home but had never thought of putting it together this way-- SO YUMMY-- and a definite make again.
Meal 2 was Old Bay-Spiced Salmon and Sweet Potato Cakes with tomato-arugula salad. It was amazing, and I think this one was Bryan's favorite. This also made one serving more than we could eat so Bryan ate it for lunch the next day. This meal was a little more technical but I love that it lays out (with pictures) step-by-step what to do. Bryan wasn't a fan of the salad (what man is...) so when he ate it left over I put it with some Zoodles. He liked that better!
And then Tuesday night I made the third meal- Pan-Seared Pork Chips with Apple Compote, Spinach Salad and Crispy Shallots. It was SO good. We don't eat a lot of pork and when we do I make Rosemary Porkchops because I love them... but this was a good change up! It's the only meal that we didn't have left overs.
 So overall-- HUGE fan of Hello Fresh Box 1! Cannot wait to get box two today!
So what's the skinny on it?? It's a box subscription that you can do as often or little as you want. I'm on weekly shipments but it's super easy to change/cancel on the website to have it meet your needs. I am just doing the two person box because my boys don't eat what we eat usually... but you can do bigger boxes or vegetarian boxes! Right now with my code---64C7H9--- you can get $40 off of a box. That makes each box less than $30! Super great deal! There are five meals you choose from every week so if you don't like something, no biggie! And it's so easy to cancel, postpone, whatever all right on the website. I decided a box was cheap enough for us to try that if we hated it we really weren't out anything!

Let me know if you do Hello Fresh or another box-- I want to hear your thoughts!!!
