This week has been extra busy and fun for me. I was able to get a really cool deal to share with my blog readers. Pantry Boy agreed to send me a their weekly meals and let me try them out for free, so I could share it with you. So let me start by saying that this is the first time I have ever used a fresh meal delivery service.
First, I went to their site www.pantryboy.com and chose a meal plan. There are 3 to choose from Carnivore, Omnivore, and Vegetarian. Carnivore is $62.34 per week for 2, Omnivore is $58.14 per week for 2 and Vegetarian is $53.94 per week for 2. Now, if you need meals for 4, you would double those prices. For that you get 3 fresh, fully prepped, ready to cook meals delivered to your door.
I will say that some of the salad options have been a little different this week, but the food has been really good. The Garlic Lemon Chicken and Mashed Potatoes was so delicious, and it took me about 30 minutes to make that. Most of the time was spent letting the potatoes boil, but the mashing part was so easy. The only thing we didn’t love was the celery in the salad, but I don’t like celery unless it is cooked, so I wasn’t too disappointed. (Side note: The kids really liked this meal)
The next meal was Baked Harissa Chicken. I looked it up and harissa is a Moroccan “condiment”, that is used there like ketchup, mustard, and mayo here. This dish used chicken thighs that were also premarinated, red potatoes, and a Morroccan salad mix. I thought it was all delicious, but my husband wasn’t a huge fan of the salad. (Side note : Kids liked all but the salad.)
Tonight we are having Slow Cooker Coconut Beef Stew. It has been cooking all day and smells absolutely delicious! I taste tested it and I think it is really good. I was honestly a little worried about the coconut part, because the taste can be a little strong, but there is a good bit of other flavor mixed in. The meat was really tender and the potatoes had so much flavor. We mixed the rice pilaf in with the stew and it was really good. I would not have personally paired those things together, so I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.
All in all, I have really liked Pantry Boy. The meals have been easy, convenient, and delicious. I don’t know that I would do this every week, but I love it for busy days and nights. My son with Autism didn’t try any of the food that I made, but that is normal no matter what I make. My daughter, Kate did try and like most of what they sent, so for me that makes it a success.
