Plated Weeks 44-47 – This is the Final Plated Reviews Post

Category: plated | Comments Off on Plated Weeks 44-47 – This is the Final Plated Reviews Post

First, let me just say, we have quite liked our Plated experiment and would do it again in the future if we wanted to shake things up and be more experimental in the kitchen. We have chosen to be more budget conscious in light of a large purchase we’ve just made and that means things […]

Week 40 Butternut Squash and Poblano Enfrijoladas with Queso Fresco I don’t remember this one. At. All. And I’m the one who cooked it. But shmoo does and he says he remembers liking it. Seared Steak with Ginger-Roasted Tomatoes, Butternut Squash, and Cardamom-Lime Yogurt I also don’t really remember this one. I vaguely remember the […]

Week 36 Curried Lamb Tacos with Cabbage Slaw and Cilantro-Lime Yogurt Good but as far as tacos go, we’ve had better. I did like that the lamb was seasoned with vindaloo seasonings but I didn’t like the tortillas they sent or the “slaw”. Yes, those are ironic quotation marks. If the slaw had been more […]

Week 31 Crispy Tilapia with Gazpacho Sauce and Summer Salad I don’t like fish but as far as fish go, I’d eat this one again. Possibly even up to once a month. I wouldn’t LOVE it, but I’d eat it. The Gazpacho sauce I ended up doctoring a bit with some garlic and red wine […]

Chicken Samosas with Cucumber Raita Salad This was tasty. Well, the Samosas were tasty. But I also kinda of cheated on them. The Tikka Masala curry paste did not turn the ground chicken as red as it appeared in the example photo on the recipe card, and it tasted a bit bland, so I threw […]

Spanakopita Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Greek Salad We liked this one, mostly. The grilled cheese was good but shmoo didn’t really care for the “salad” which I found yummy. This one wasn’t as good at fig preserve one, but I definitely see fancy grilled cheeses in our future for dinner. Vietnamese Pork Bún with Peanut […]

Between this post and the last one, we are now all caught up and hopefully the weekly posts will pick up again on a more regular basis. Week 18 Cuban Beef Bowls with Mojo Sauce and Avocado Pineapple Salsa Not a bad dish. We would have used a different rice. The Avocado Pineapple salsa was […]

Week 11 Beef Rendang with Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime, and Yellow Rice We liked it, but it was not an inspirational recipe for us. I was not compelled to recraft it or recreate it in any way, but we don’t regret getting it either. Brown Butter Orecchiette This was delicious and we’ve made it twice since. […]

This week was good. We enjoyed both dishes and I can see making our own versions of them at a later date. Peanut Noodles with Bok Choy and Miso-Glazed Eggplant This was tasty. Shmoo generally avoids miso, but was really happy with how it worked in this dish. I don’t think I’ve had a peanut-ginger […]

Plated Week 9

This week we liked both of the meals, and both of them had meat in them, which is a bit different for us because we try to get a vegetarian meal for at least one of the dishes. There were some great things about both dishes and some things we’d change. Beef Lo Mein with […]
