So, I signed up for a food service called Plated. They send you everything you need to cook 2 dinners for 2. The deal I used was for 4 free plates, you just paid $20 shipping.
This is what you see when opening the box:
Everything out of the box and on the counter:
Dinner #1 was Cesar Steak Lettuce Cups with Lemon Potatoes
And the finished product. I did not read the instructions fully before getting started. The lemon potatoes were supposed to be on the side, but I added them to the lettuce cup. I'm sure it made no difference. While we liked this and the portions were big, J was rummaging in the fridge and pantry about 2 hours later, so it wouldn't work on a regular basis.
The second dinner was Pork Tonkatsu with Yuzu Cherry Sauce and Mizuna:
And finished. While it was good, it's definitely not like the Tonkatsu you get in Japan.
While it was nice to try this service, it's not something I will continue using. A plate is $12 a piece and I just don't think it's work 50 bucks a week for J and I.
Because it seems that all of these types of services are offering some sort of special to get you to try them out, I signed up for a few others to see how they were. I should get those boxes this week.
