Last week we tried Plated and this week we tried Hello Fresh.
First up was Asian Steak/Bok Choy noodle salad (it was not our favorite):
And finished (it looked good, but did not make the taste cut):
Second thing to try was a black bean with fresh corn and poblano pepper quesadilla. They were very good and quick; definitely something we will make again. The corn was white sweet corn cut off the cob:
We also had a fresh pico to go with them. I used my trusty George Forman Quesadilla Maker for these instead of a pan on the stove. Also, the ingredients were supposed to be enough to make 2 quesadillas, but there was so much extra filling, I just took 4 more tortillas from the fridge so the filling wouldn't be wasted:
We ended up canning 6 pints of pickles and 9 half pints of green tomato salsa verde. J was determined to get vine ripen tomatoes from the garden, but when they even start to get a hint of red, something starts to eat them. So in an effort to at least get some sort of useful tomato, he picked 95% of the green tomatoes and we made the salsa.
For the pickles, I basically used this recipe: Grandmas Spicy Dill Pickle Recipe We had no fresh dill on hand and didn't want to run to the grocery store, so we just used dried.
And for the salsa, I used: Salsa Verde Made With Green Tomatoes I did have to make some adjustments as we only had 4.5 lbs of tomatoes.
Estate sales were a bust again this week. That's now 3 weekends in a row with nothing. If things don't start picking up, I'm going to have to find a new Pyrex shopping avenue.
