I kept seeing the ads for Plated on Facebook, so I decided to try the $20 intro deal. The two meals I chose were Peanut Tahini Noodles with Baked Sesame Tofu and Butter Basted Steak with Hassleback Potatoes. Both were excellent, but at the regular price, it is cost-prohibitive. These meals come with pretty much everything you need except salt, pepper and olive oil. The recipes were easy to understand, and not too time-consuming. Neither of us had ever cooked with tofu before, but we plan to try it again soon because it was so easy. The Plated recipes made me get out of my cooking comfort zone and be a little more adventurous. I would love to be able to receive more of the meals, but the regular price is $12 per meal, so I will have to stick to Pinterest for my next inspirations.
It has rained a lot in the last couple of weeks. The tomato leaves are yellow and spotty again. Hoping it won’t be a repeat of last year when we lost all of the tomatoes to rain and raccoons. The peppers are doing great, and the squash plants are doing pretty well too. Tomorrow I am going to try a Pinterest recipe to use the squash that I bought at the market this weekend. If it turns out well, I will share.
