In an effort to try more adventurous meals and to introduce new and different flavor combinations into our diet, Mike and I signed up for Hello Fresh meals. We’ve been at it now for several months, and it has been a huge success.  We are learning so much about how to put together Disney-dinner quality meals. Now if you know me at all, then you know I LOVE booking one meal a day in the parks when we’re at Walt Disney World. People may complain about the expensive food in the sit-down meals at Disney, but I believe you get what you pay for. We have not been disappointed, as a matter of fact, we have felt pampered and sated after our Disney meals.

All that to say, we had Hello Fresh Cranberry Turkey Burgers tonight with Green Salad, and it was scrumptious!

  • turkey burgers with a few herbs and spices, chopped shallot, and Panko crumbs mixed in
  • potato buns with a mayonnaise/cranberry jam mixture spread on them
  • and spring mix lettuce with dried cranberries and pecans mixed with balsamic vinegar and EVOO.

No lie, you guys, this is a keeper of a recipe which I will do again on my own.  Mike, too, was so-o-o into it. It only took 15 minutes of prep time, and 35 minutes from when we started, we sat down to eat.

For us Hello Fresh is a little pricey at $69 for 3 meals for 2 people, but it’s really easy to skip a week if the funds are tight, or we’re going to be out of town, or if we’re cooking up a storm ourselves because of holidays or out-of-town guests.  And BTW you can also order meals for 4 people, rather than 2 people if you have kids at home.  We usually have left overs, enough for Mike to have it for lunch the next day…but not tonight. We hoovered it up like it was our last meal.  🙂

Seriously, if you’re a foodie and can swing it, give Hello Fresh a try. We’ve had fab food and excellent customer service. hellofresh.com

On a different note, the cat’s Christmas present arrived today.  It’s a LUUUP litter box.  I’m so excited, because I detest scooping every day.  UGH! Google it or YouTube it, where you can actually see how it works.  I’ll let you know further down the line how it goes.  Mary Ann (our peculiar, prickly pet) immediately hopped into it and tried it out.  She looked very smug when she was finished, but looked a little insulted that she couldn’t manage to kick some the litter out on the floor. I found myself wanting to laugh in victory. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

That’s it for today, dear readers. May you be blessed until the next time.
