Another week, another Plated delivery!  B gets sad if we don’t get at least one meal subscription service box a week and I like to keep him happy, so I keep ordering.  He works hard and if he wants Plated, he gets Plated!

The Box

Plated ships via FedEx and arrives on Tuesdays.  As long as you order by Monday at noon (EST), your box will arrive on Tuesday.  Once again I left my box on the porch for a super long time and even though it was hot out, all was well.

First Look

I recycle all my box materials, but I’d love to know if anyone has any better ideas on what I can do with the cooler part of this box?  Can they be re-used? If so, Plated should figure out how to make it happen so that we could return them somehow.  Here are the meals we received this week:

~Chicken with Three-Tomato Pasta Sauce: I picked this meal out because I am totally obsessed with chicken pasta.  And I only like red sauce so I just knew this was going to be amazing.  It took a few bites before I really enjoyed it though.  It was different than I was expecting.  I think it was the red wine that went in the sauce?  Either way, it was yummy.  Just a little different than I was expecting!

~Blackened Shrimp Tacos with Grilled Mexican Corn: I picked this one because it had avocado in it ;).  And it was all delicious.  The “stuff” on the corn isn’t butter. It’s a mixture of greek yogurt and mayo and oddly, tastes a bit like sour cream – in a super good way.  We will for sure be making this again!

Did you get Plated last week?  What’d you think?  This weeks menu includes Pork Burgers with Salad, Fish & Chips, Thai Chicken (my pick), Miso Steak (my pick) and Chicken Rollatini.  This menu, which gets delivered tomorrow, is only valid until 12pm (EST) today though.  After noon, it’s a whole new menu which will be delivered next Tuesday (9.24).

If you are interested in giving it a try or want to learn more, click here to try two free plates (new customers only).  Basically you’ll get 4 plates for the price of 2 ($30)!!  That’s 4 meals/plates for $30, which is less than $8/plate.  Ohhh, and I should also mention that with every order you place you get to send 4 FREE plates to 3 people.  I love sending out my free plates to my friends each week and I think I’m getting them hooked on Plated too!

    I wish Plated delivered to Tennessee. I am gluten intolerant and they are the only ones who seem to have a gluten free option. Do you know another service that has that option?
