A big thank you to Hello Fresh for sponsoring this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
For my husband and I, quality alone time together is very limited. My husband works full time, we have a toddler, a baby AND we are currently living with my in-laws. Finding little moments to relax and spend time together is so important, because we don’t get them too often! One of the ways we have been spending time together lately is by making dinner and eating at the table after the boys are in bed. We recently got a few meals from Hello Fresh and we have had so much fun cooking them together!
Hello Fresh is a food subscription box that contains all the pre-measured ingredients you need for each recipe. You get to choose how many meals you receive, how many people it will serve and you get to choose the specific meals from the Hello Fresh menu for that week. Everything we got in our box was delicious!
When I received the package, all of the meat was on the bottom with ice packs, there was a divider and then individual boxes for each meal that included all the produce, seasonings etc for that meal. There was also an apron and a booklet that had exact instructions for each meal. We got the Chicken Orzo Dinner with Cheesy Roasted Veggies, Upgraded Steak and Potatoes with Green Beans Amandine and the Creamy Mushroom Pork Chops with Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Crispy Potatoes.
The first meal we made was the steak.
It turned out so good and even though I’m not a big vegetable eater, I loved the recipes from Hello Fresh! Hubby made it medium rare just like I like it! 😉
Next up was the chicken. We modified this one a bit and put mozzarella on top of the chicken, but really, who can resist all the cheese?!
A glass of chardonnay went perfectly with this one! And last, but definitely not least was the pork chops. The sauce was so yummy and this was my first time having brussel sprouts. I was pleasantly surprised!
If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for a married couple, Hello Fresh gift cards are perfect! You can choose a single box from the classic plan, vegetarian plan or the family plan for people that have kids, too!
