A new meal-kit service and Miss Americana

Friday, January 31, 2020

Plated shut down their meal-kit delivery service over Thanksgiving. I really looked forward to that box of recipes and ingredients each week. Before that I was quite happily with Kroger kits, then they bought out Home Chef and things got weird.

For Christmas I got a gift of Sun Basket* from Joseph and was cautiously optimistic.

So far? So good! The recipes vary in complexity, the flavors are impressive and the packaging seems a bit less wasteful.

Kathryn came over on Friday brought a salad and I cooked a steak and roasted sweet potato with scallion-ginger relish kit.

Sidenote: She brought over this homemade Maple Sherry Vinaigrette dressing and it was awesome.

Then we settled in to stream the new Taylor Swift movie. I had forgotten how truly gross that Kayne West award show moment was. I dig Taylor’s music and her journey, so the whole thing was delightful.

Plus also? I really wonder if Edie would like this backpack…
