I've been super excited about cooking this week and am so excited to share my first week of eMeals with you! eMeals provided me with 7 dinner menus, but I opted to only prepare four. Hubby has Bible study on Wednesday and doesn't get home until late and we usually have plans or eat out on the weekends. So, here's a run-down of this week's meals.
Meal 1 >> Grilled Pacific Flat Iron Steak with Broccoli & French Bread <<
Okay, I've never cooked flat iron steak before and I'm so glad the eMeals has exposed me to it. Cooking it on the George Foreman grill was easy and the marinade used was delish. On the eMeals app, I had a heads up that I needed to "marinate ahead."
It was good to have that reminder and when I got home in the evening, my meat was prepped and ready to go. The other thing I really liked about this week's meal plan is that I grilled the full 1.5 lbs of steak, but only half was for that meal. The rest was put in the fridge for meal 2 (and this was in my cooking instructions). It made meal 2 less time to prep since the meat only needed to be reheated.Meal 2 >> Steak & Bleu Salad with Strawberries & Crescent Rolls <<
Above are the salad ingredients and below is the finished meal. The meal plan not only comes with your main dish, but side dishes also. Who would have thought to pair sliced strawberries with bleu cheese and balsamic vinegar? Definitely not me, but to my surprise...it worked! Feels good to be preparing something new.
Meal 4 >> Buffalo-Style Chicken Pizza with Celery Stick and Ranch Dressing <<
So, I would say (and my hubby would say) that all four meals I prepared this week were really good and none of it had I ever prepared in my home before. The shopping list was convenient with the eMeals app and this week's meals cost me less than $50 (which included buying some staple items which I should have already had in the kitchen).
I'm looking forward to my next week of eMeals. Here's a glimpse at my menu!
