Plated is a meal subscription service – you get the ingredients, menus, and cook everything yourself. We really enjoy Plated because it makes restaurant quality meals for us super easy! My husband is here this weekend and I picked up some Plated meals for us to enjoy. Above was everything I received in my box, including 2 large ice packs. Plated varies the amount of ice depending on the weather and my meat was ice cold. Never a problem with that! I’m already food-safety conscious and I feel more than comfortable consuming Plated meals during my pregnancy.
You can see multiple weeks of Plated menus in advance! My in-laws are visiting next week (oh boy) and I had my MIL select a couple meals for her to cook. She picked Baked Fish and Chips with Hearts of Romaine and Thai Chicken Burgers with Sriracha Mayo! So next week will be super exciting because I’m making her cook it. Or my FIL. Which will even be more hilarious. Be on the lookout for “When Parents Cook Plated!”

Pulled Spicy Barbecue Chicken with Pico de Gallo – I picked this meal because my husband and I both enjoy Mexican (Tex-Mex) and spicy food.
Pico de Gallo – super easy (and helped along by hubby’s mad knife skills), brown rice & beans – even easier. Tom pulled the chicken and I made the BBQ sauce. I wish it had been less sweet. It was too much for me but nice and spicy. I think perhaps we should have just used less sauce.
Cheddar Burgers with Baked Onion Rings – Who is going to say no to a nice burger? Not I! These were wonderfully seasoned with worcestershire sauce and grated onion. The sauce was a mayo/ketchup/red wine vinegar and fresh tarragon sauce. Plus panko-crusted baked onion rings.
The brioche bun lasted until the last bite!
So that was Plated for the week! Everything was fresh and yummy and took the stress (and a whole lot of time) away from the cooking process for the weekend. I can’t recommend it enough for those times when you need to augment your menu. It’s a fantastic solution for us.
