It's Foodie Friday!

Did you enjoy a meal kit this week that was delish? Chow down on a tasty snack you received in a subscription box? Try out a recipe that turned out to be a winner? Or just have a super tasty meal that you wanna talk about?

I’ll start!

I’ve been reviewing food boxes for MSA for about seven years now, and I’ve gotten to try a lot of different products over that time. I always get excited when I see something I’ve reviewed on a local grocery shelf, especially when I know the company started small. I always root for small businesses, and it makes me happy when they do well and score wide distribution for their products. Well, I was at Whole Foods yesterday, and I spotted Brooklyn Deli’s Tomato Achaar, which I reviewed twice back in 2016! (Once in Boxwalla Food and the other in The Fare Trade box.)

Achaar is traditionally used as a pickle in Indian cuisine and often served alongside curry and rice or daal, but I feel in love with the bright and savory flavor and used it on a whole heap of things. I especially loved it on burgers, so I might be gilling out this weekend!

I also picked up a jar of Cashew Butter Marsala, which I’m planning to use next week to whip up an easy veggie curry.


Okay y’all
I got 2 meals from both Blue Apron and home chef this week. Usually I exclusively use Blue Apron, but I wanted to try out the Skinnytaste collab Home Chef was doing. I made the Mahi Mahi Florentine dish last night and it was so! Freaking! Good!


Okay, anyone want to help me out with deciding on what I should make for dinner tonight? The choices are the Skinnytaste X Homechef chicken with mushroom shallot sauce and wild rice or the blue apron saffron risotto with Brussel sprouts, Parmesan cheese, and pancetta.

These both sound really good tbh!

I’m a lot more interested in the home chef one now that the mahi mahi florentine was such a success- I couldn’t believe I finished the fish before I finished the potatoes

Blue apron won. And then I was upset. Because I ordered a Brussel sprouts dish and received a Shishito pepper dish and there is a very big difference between the two. Like even the meal card sent in the box didn’t match the online meal card. I felt like I was going crazy.

All of that said, this was still pretty good

How strange! I know sometimes meal kits will have to sub an ingredient, but I’m surprised they couldn’t send Brussels sprouts. Still looks pretty tasty with the peppers, but I agree the swap turns that into a completely different dish.

Oh my gosh looking at all this yummy food is making me hungry! I need to eat breakfast :rofl:

@Lindsey-MSA I’m really curious about that cashew butter! It sounds delicious

@Lindsey-MSA what threw me off was the recipe card being different from the online one.

I’ve cooked my blue apron meals for the past two nights, with leftovers being lunch. Both of these were really, really good.

The gnocchi looks awesome. :drooling_face:

It’s Foodie Friday! What have you been noshing on this week?

The real question: what takeout should I order tonight

Pizza, Indian, or Thai… are there any other options? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Omg you mind reader! I was leaning pizza but ultimately went Indian! Butter chicken, extra naan, aloo tikka chaat, and potato samosas should be delivered any minute now
