The fourth package I got today was my first from @hellofresh! I had a 50% off discount for my first box, and finally decided to take advantage of it. And I'm so glad I did! 😄❤ . . . .
I made one of the three dinners for myself and my Mom tonight. This Creamy Dill Chicken with Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans was delicious! Both Mom and I were very impressed and pleased. (Although I did have to call to clarify the instructions: When do you start Step 3? Answer: Start cooking the chicken after you toss the potatoes at their halfway point. [Start heating oil in the pan for the chicken after you put the potatoes in the oven to start roasting.]) 😊 . . . .
Everything turned out perfectly and I managed to get everything timed just right - thanks to the help of a very nice customer service rep - so that Mom and I had hot dinners. 😄❤ . . . .
The first four photos share the recipe card and ingredients. (We only had to supply the vegetable oil [olive oil], salt, and pepper!) The fifth photo shares the finished product: my dinner, ready to be eaten. (Mom had already run away to the living room with hers! 😄) 😍❤ . . . .
And as I said earlier, it was delicious! Neither my mother nor I left any leftovers! 😄 (We were both STUFFED.) ❤ . . . .
On Saturday I wasn't sure what I was going to make, but I wanted it to be healthy! It includes potatoes though? But that's okay, as long as it's in moderation!!! What you need for all the good stuff you see in this post:
For the courgettes: zaatar spice, a little salt, black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Bake it in the oven on grill. Do not over cook because you still want a crunch when you bite into the courgette😙
I saw this salad in a Palestinian recipe book that my sister gifted me @avidaenrosa❤️❤️❤️ and I really loved what goes in it because it's so simple and it's ingredients that you can easily grow in your garden. Palestinians know this as "finely diced or farmer's salad" and of course there are different variations for this salad, so whatever fresh ingredients you have, throw it in! What you will need:
Tomatoes, cucumber, 1 whole unwaxed lemon, lemon juice, pinch of salt, chopped fresh mint leaves/or dried mint, 2 red/green chillies, an onion or spring onions, olive oil (I omitted the olive oil). You may also add parsley, bell peppers, radishes or pomegranate seeds. What I love about this salad is that it's so refreshing, and it has a bit of that kick!
The potatoes was just as simple. All you need to do is cut the potatoes into wedges, add salt, zaatar spice and some fresh rosemary and drizzle with some olive oil, put it in the oven and wait till it's crispy on the outside and soft in the inside! And voila! ❤️👌🏽😘 the potatoes were absolutely divine, and I couldn't stop devouring it🙈
My little brother saw this and looked at me, and asked "is that all we are having? I need meat!😑😕".. so being the nice sister that I am, I quickly made a stir fry thing : Heat a bit of oil, add sliced onions, red and yellow peppers, and sauté with garlic and ginger paste, add chicken strips a bit of salt and smoked paprika and cayenne pepper. You can add all this in a wrap if you want with some yogurt, I promise you it's sooo good for your tummy!!! ❤️❤️ #salad#foodforthesoul#farmerssalad#dicedsalad#cuisine#refreshingsalad#zaatar#courgettes#stirfry#palestiniansalad#roastedpotatoes
~ POTATO WEDGES ~ white potato or sweet potato, doesn’t matter, they’re both starchy super stars! Cut ‘em up, throw ‘em onto a piping hot, greased baking dish & bake at around 190c for 20 minutes, turning once. Sweet potatoes are my favorite carb, and most kids will take to them very well.
Try baking in coconut oil, ghee, obviously olive oil & always season with salt & pepper before baking. To mix it up, season with cumin and/or smoked paprika.
