Last week we finally decided to order, and yesterday we got our first box!
(Please excuse my bad photography throughout). I was so excited to open it up and check everything out, I forgot to take any picture of the inside. I was too tired to get cooking though, so I put that off until today.
For our first recipe we decided to try out Rice & Beef-Stuffed Poblano Peppers.
Honestly, I picked this first because this seemed like the recipe that was most outside of our box, so I kinda wanted to get it over with. So I pulled out the handy dandy recipe card and unpacked the ingredients, which were all nicely separated and pre-measured. (Also please excuse the messy counter :) ). What I really liked about the recipe card is that it went step by step, and told you how to time things, that's always something I have trouble with.
I started off cooking rice as instructed... which didn't go so well. I was so busy chopping the onions I forgot to turn down the heat and burned it :(. Luckily I had some extra quinoa, so I got that started instead. I figured it was a healthier option anyway, and it tasted just fine.
Next I roasted myself some peppers
It took a little longer than instructed (and I still don't think I got them fully cooked). Then I got the meat cooked, stuffed the peppers, cooked them a little more, and we were good to go! They didn't end up as pretty as the picture, but oh well.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's recipe!
