Hello Fresh Review – Meal 8

Jerk Chicken Skewers with Curry Rice Pilaf 

IMG_2130.JPG I love me some Jerk Chicken and when I saw this recipe pop up I was stoked to try it out. The only issue was I had run out of time because I was back to my schedules…  and normally I would have made this meal on sunday night but we had company.. So Monday night came and well, that was the night I made it and packed it for the next day…. but not without having a bit before packing it away for my lunch the next day…

 All I can say is YES! YES! YES!!! everything about this meal was amazing… the spicy mixed with the sweetness of the peach was so unexpected. It was like a  burst of awesomeness in my mouth.  I was floored! I was excited to bring it to work and share with my coworkers to give them a taste of what these boxes had to offer and even they were impressed…  The Jerk Chicken was Spicy to the point my mouth was on fire and my nose was running. It was SPOT on!!!  My coworker that is married to a west indie even said that this was some of the best jerk chicken that they had tasted…

 The Rice was nice… I normally don’t do well with certain curry and my stomach just rejects everything about it.. but this was a nice mild flavor not too overdone.. I think the only thing that I did not care for, was the selection of snap peas they sent.. they were in poor shape and I had to basically clip so much of  bean off. But I made it work.

This meal……. 4 out of 4 stars!!!

Hello Fresh Review – Meal 7

Heirloom Tomato Flatbread with Prosciutto and Pesto

This was an easy delish Saturday Lunch that we did… The flavor was through the roof.. I really enjoyed it.  The Dough that they send is in a bag and you have to let it warm up to room temperatureIMG_2117.JPG so that you can get the dough to fully stretch to a nice flat bread size. Here is what came in the box…

Pizza Dough, Prosciutto, Fresh Mozzarella, Heirloom Tomatoes, and Pesto

Thats pretty much it… You start out but rolling out the dough and then poking it with a fork and then precooking it in the oven…. Then once it has a golden color to the dough. you take it out. Placing the Pesto on first followed by the Mozzarella,  and the tomatoes. Then throw it back into the oven and bam before you know it it’s done and ready to be eaten!

My husband loved it and before I knew it, his plate was empty!  This is a great meal to just throw together on a rainy day or when you just want something quick and easy! I mean seriously, how DELISH does this looks!!! 4 out 0f 4 Stars From us!

REVIEW: Mizuno Prophecy 3’s

 Image

Since November 2nd after purchasing my Prophecy 3’s I’ve been rocking them like they were the shit…. Well, that was until I ran my first Half of the year and that totally changed my mind. But before I get into that, let me give you the good stuff that I liked about them. The Design is EPIC. I love the coloring, The idea of taking a Japanese blow fish into consideration on the markings, and they truly are a comfortable shoe for low mileage…… Now, that brings me to the bad of these shoes.  Since March I have ran 6 halves… Pretty much all back to back. PR’ing every single time I ran. But thank god I had paced myself faster in the first half of a race because by mile 10 I felt as though I had no shoes on my feet and I was straight hitting pavement barefoot. IT SUCKED.. It was not comfortable what so ever. At the Long Branch Half I was pacing pretty friggin good and I was digging the vibe through out the whole entire race and at mile 10 my feet fell apart….. 2 weeks after that I did that Brooklyn half and by mile 9 my feet had enough. I felt something pop in my foot and Game Was OVER!!…. I had to walk the rest of the race..  I was SOOOO upset! and my feet, well they are still recovering.  I guess for now these sneakers will become more of an everyday shoe than a running shoe. I was soooo hoping these would be my IT!!!

 

– on a side note, I did call mizuno to see what they could do for me… and well, never got a phone call back nor an email. Sweet!
