Have you heard of this new food service called Plated? There was an online deal for 50% off your first order so I decided to give it a try! Basically, they release a new menu every week with half a dozen meal choices to select from. Yesterday a big box arrived on my doorstep with all of the ingredients and recipes for four delicious (and mostly healthy), fresh meals. I made the Seared Flank Steak with Escarole and Marcona Almond Salad last night and it was a big hit! Without a discount the meals average about $12 per person, so it's not inexpensive, but it's similar to what take out or a casual restaurant would run. I had fun learning a new recipe and the instructions are so clear I think Patrick could even give it a try sometime.
